A test of innovation and skills

A test of innovation and skills

Oxy-Tech’, a national-level techno-cultural fest organised by the students of computer applications of Oxford College of Engineering, saw a host of events lined up. The two-day fest had a lot to offer and students ended up learning a lot. A plethora of innovative events made the fest a popular choice among students and they came in large numbers to participate.

Events such as ‘Rock IT’ (group dance), Khoj (treasure hunt), Kurukshetra - Need for Speed Most Wanted’, ‘IT Quiz’, ‘gully cricket’, web designing, ‘Ice Breaker’, ‘Tech dumb charades’, ‘Mad Ads’ and ‘Kodez - codes debugging’ were an integral part of the fest. Students were having a good time and could be seen chatting and trying their hand at the different events that were being conducted. Some of the most popular events were Khoj (treasure hunt) and ‘Mad Ads’.

Students said that organising the fest was the experience of a lifetime and they learnt a lot from it.

   “We planned everything well in advance as there was a lot of work and everything had to be finished before the deadline. We had divided ourselves into different teams so that everything was smooth and the work was done effectively. Each team had its own deadline and we worked accordingly. What worked in our favour was that we started well in advance and hence, had enough time to add last-minute changes to the fest,” explained Priya, a student organiser.

The students were glad that the fest was a hit and was visited by students from many colleges across the City.

   Many other students said that the fest was a test of their determination and willpower. “It was a challenge to organise such a big fest and we had to prepare ourselves accordingly. Our teachers were very supportive and helped us in each and every aspect. We learnt a lot about different aspects that will help us in future as well.

We learnt key skills like team work, stress management, handling crisis and taking
decisions. It was a very enriching experience,” said Aruna, a student.

The fest also proved to be a platform for talented students as they could showcase their skills to a large audience.

   With the fest coming to an end, students are all set to get back to academics.
