Intercollegiate tech festival kicks off

An intercollegiate tech festival was inaugurated at Nitte Meenakshi Institute of Technology on Wednesday.

A two-day intercollegiate annual technical festival, UDAAN-2019 organised by Falcon (Aeronautical Students Association) at the Nitte Meenakshi Institute of Technology, was inaugurated on Wednesday by Prof N R Shetty, chancellor, Central University of Karnataka.

About 100 aeronautical engineering students from various colleges across Karnataka are taking part exhibiting their designs, prototypes and presentations during the festival.

"Most of our teachers say, they always feel short of new ideas, thanks to continuous teaching for years. But I feel the role of teachers is not limited to sharing just ideas. Teachers are creative leaders. The role of a creative leader is not to have all the ideas; it is to create a culture where everyone can harbour new ideas," said Prof Shetty.

The event was graced by the presence of Umesh B T, general manager, CIM Tools Private Limited, Capt Anil Rao, senior pilot and trainer, Air Asia India, Dr H C Nagaraj, principal, NMIT and Dr P K Dash, head of aeronautical engineering.
