Stepping into the 16th edition of its annual techno management festival, IIT Guwahati is all ready to deliver its perennial technological overdose in the form of Techniche, to be conducted from 3rd to 7th September at IIT Guwahati campus. As always, this four days of fun, frolic and enlighten gives opportunity to students nationwide to display their skills and compete with some of the best competitive minds around. Filled with huge variety of events spanning the domain of technology, management and amusement, this festival is sure to leave every audience who attend IIT Guwahati spellbound. Started fifteen years ago in 1999, Techniche was conceptualised with an aim to motivate the youth of our nation to think out of the box, expand their horizons and reach the zenith of success in all techno-management spheres. It has stayed true to its vision since and never ceased to amaze. Techniche now revels in being one of the premier techno-management festivals of the nation. The competitions include Technothlon – the international school championship, Escalade-the annual robotics competition, Corporate module an innovative management face-off and others. The one module that catches the eye of every participant every year is the PreDefined Module.
Coming from its huge success at last years’ Techniche, the PreDefined module this time around gives you the much needed fun element amongst the technical extravaganza. In one sentence, your preparation for the events decides the result, and hence the name. From building an RC car to solving real life issues and problems, predefined has it all. With the problem statements given way in advance , it provides the participants with enough time to research and discuss to come up with the best possible solution. It lets each participant face challenges, learn and have their own experience while going from the problem to its solution.
Here is a brief description of all the events being held, but more details along with suitable guidance can be found in our website.
Shredder: This is an online event. Art begins in imitation and ends in innovation. Techniche brings you the opportunity to make a scene your own brainchild. Participants have to shred-out scenes from different movies and blend it into their own movie with a different story-line.
Easel: The problem statement demands you to build a movable bridge out of everyday materials and test the mettle of a civil engineer inside you! The prototype has to be made at home and bought to the competition. This is not an On-spot event.
App Ideate: This event is aimed at those people who are not into coding but have innovative ideas to design and build apps. An online event, participants have to submit their ideas in detail and stress on its utility and neediness.
Bermuda triangle: An event that tests your coding skills with a little flavour to it. To crack this event you would need a concomitant effort. Work in groups of three and showcase your teamwork and parallelism. This event not only tests your ability to code algorithmically but also on the importance and ability to make the code look presentable and understandable.
Cryptophobia: This event is designed to test your presence of kind and concentration power. Expect a wide variety of puzzle-based questions pointing towards answers in the realm of technology, logic and yes ciphers! People with in and out supremacy over logic may excel in this event.
