The students of IEEE UVCE held their annual technical fest ‘Impetus’ in their campus recently. Over 20 events were held and more than 1000 students took part in the two-day fest. 

Many students from different states also attended the fest.

Students put in a lot of hard work to make the fest a successful one. 

Each event was first reviewed and discussed and only then was it allowed to be a part of the fest.
Some of the events held were manual robotics, autonomous robotics, ‘Wall Street’ — a virtual stock market, face off-debate, ‘Mech Mind’ — 3D modelling, ‘Prison Break’ — a techno fun event and ‘Sherlocked’ — treasure hunt. Gaming events like FIFA and NFS also had many takers.
Though the fest was a lot of fun, students worked very hard to make it a success. 

Jithin Joseph, a member of the executive committee of the fest, said that they started preparing for it months in advance.
“The entire experience was very rewarding and we had a great time. We had many sessions before the fest where we sat and discussed what needs to be done by the students. Also, we had to make sure that everything was on schedule and that participants from other colleges did not face any difficulty during the fest. We kept small details like providing materials and space for the robotics competition in mind. We finished all the preparations a day before the fest and once everything was set, we let the competitions take their own pace,” he 
Students noted that organising a fest is not an easy job as many last-minute queries and glitches come up.
While some students were seen having a good time with friends, others could be seen running around for the fest. 

Robotics was a very popular event and many students took part in the gaming events too.

Prashanth S, a student coordinator, said that it was a learning experience. “We learnt many things while organising this fest. Managing the crowd, checking that the events were on time and ensuring that the competition was fair were the biggest challenges we faced but we received a very good response from the participants,” he said.
