Paper Presentation One of the most important events of the symposium, it sees students of several colleges participate. This year, the topics are:
Mechatronics System Design/ MEMs
Instrumentation and Control Systems
Recent trends in Automobile Engineering
Recent advances in Material Technology
Neural Network & Fuzzy Logic
Non-Conventional Energy Systems
Expert systems in Manufacturing Technology
Nanotechnology & Virtual Manufacturing
Pocket Mein Rocket A paper plane contest where participants are required to make a plane from the raw materials that will be given on the spot.
Junkyard Wars Model the required entity out of the provided junk from the mechanical backyard.
Mec'collage Cut pictures relevant to a particular topic (provided on the spot) from the material provided, and paste them on a chart to express your ideas. The required print material (newspapers, magazines and stationery) will be provided by the organizers.
Technical Potpourri The event is a combination of a Technical Quiz, Technical Dumb-charades, and Technical Pictionary.
Robotics Workshop The workshop is being organized by ARK Technosystems, in collaboration with IIT Kharagpur, which in turn will provide certificates for all the participants.
Aqua Race Prepare a floating robot which can be propelled forward so as to complete the race course in minimum time.
Robosoccer The aim is to design a robot that can kick the ball and score the goal. The robot can be either wired or wireless.
All-Terrain Race Each competing team must design and prepare a manually operated bot which is required to travel through a series of different terrains like mud, gravel and grass.
Line Follower In this event, the robots have to cross a maze without trespassing into the opponent's territory.
Step Climber Each competing team must design and build a manually operated bot which must ascend and descend a staircase in the least possible time, step by step.
Sumo-Bot Participants must make a robot capable of pushing out the opponent’s robot out of the boundary in a specified time limit.
