With a technical twist

Creativity explored

In addition to applying their academic knowledge, students put their creativity to test in events like collage and web designing. They even had to work on non-technical topics using their technical abilities in this two-day festival.

The topic for the web designing competition was ‘Sports’. The participants were given the topic on spot and they had to design a functional web page in hour’s time. Photos and videos required to develop the page were provided by the organisers.

“It was one of the most exciting events. The participants were judged on the basis of the look and feel of the website they had designed. Technical quality and programme coding were also taken into consideration. While judging our work, the experts asked us many questions regarding our creation. They also asked us to write a new coding. As there was no Internet connection on any of the systems, copying was not possible,” said Sachin, a third semester student who won the first prize in web designing event along with his partner Keerthi.

‘Global Warming and World Peace’ was the topic given for collage making. Suriya and Prateek won the first and second place in it respectively. All the collages prepared by the participants were displayed in the college to create awareness among students. “There is a reason why such topics were selected. We wanted our students to be aware of current topics and burning issues. As they are students of professional courses, they don’t get the time to look into other things. The best thing about this festival was that we got more entries from the first semester,” said Srivatsala, one of the faculty coordinators.

In poster designing, students worked on the topic ‘Cloud Computing’ and designed attractive and informative posters. There was also a competition on 2D animation. Ashish and Akshath won the first and second prizes respectively.

“To enhance the all-round development of the MCA students and cultivate varied interests in them, we conduct events like this every year. We believe that academic foundation should be complemented with co-curricular activities which bring out the hidden talent of the students and provide them a platform to exhibit their potentials and help them excel in a wide range of professional, leadership, and life skills,” said Dr L Manjunatha Rao, Director, DSSIT.
