All about technical brilliance

Last updated: 26 April, 2010

Aavishkaar

It was an ideal platform for budding technicians and engineers to showcase their talent. Aavishkaar 2010, a technical fest conducted by M S Ramaiah Institute of Technology (MSRIT), saw the participations of almost 20 colleges.

The fest was organised by the MSRIT student chapter of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The two-day long fest held on April 23 and 24 was inaugurated by Dr K N Shankara, former director of ISRO Space Applications Centre.
There were eight competitions and two workshops held over the course of two days. The two workshops, on Ethical Hacking and Information Security and Photoshop and Designing, saw a tremendous response with over 40 participants in each of them. The other competitions held during the fest were Algomach, Cyber Treasure Hunt, Paper Presentation, Tech Quiz and Product Design to name a few. While Algomach was an on-the-spot programming event; Cyber Treasure Hunt had the participants solve problems and puzzles while make their way through web pages that provided the next challenge.

One of the most interesting events was Product Design in which the students were given a situation and had to come out with a creative product. The situation given to them was to create a surveillance product for a terrorist camp. They were given an hour and a half to prepare and had to come up with a presentation (12+2 minutes).

Sunil Kumar N, a student of 8th semester Computer Science, chairs the IEEE and was one of the main organisers of the fest. He said, “The main motive behind the fest was to encourage technical competence amongst the students. It had students from different disciplines coming together to participate in various competitions.”
Said Harsha, an 8th semester student of electronics and communication, who took part in Product Design, “My partner Nithya and I came up with an aerobot. It was a double sided robot made of polymer which had microgrippers on surface for movement.”

The duo ended up bagging the second prize in the competition. “It was a great experience. I had never imagined that we could come with such creative products in such a short span of time,” added Harsha.
