Techfest is like a brand name in college technical festivals. Indian Institute Of Technology, Powai, Bombay announced the dates for Techfest 2012. The Techfest will be held on January first week.
Practical knowledge, industry experience and extra knowledge bank is the common most factors of successful engineers. The question is from where to gain that ? Classes and lab sessions can teach basic knowledge of subject, some theories, but to get hands on the subject you need to do projects, industry visit, etc. TechFest is one of the best platforms to generate ideas from theories that you learned.
I had blogged TechFest 2010 live on TeraBug. Some posts are as follows:
