MVJ College of Engineering, one of the top engineering colleges in Bangalore, hosted a 2-day technical extravagance Vertechx 8.0 on April 2 & 3. The event, which witnessed participation of 250 colleges and over 5000 students from across the country, was inaugurated by P. S. Krishnan, distinguished scientist (retd), ex director, Aeronautical Development Establishment Bangalore.
Keeping in mind the veritable technical acumen required to do well in the corporate world, the events at the techfest were designed to test one’s skillsets. The event kick started with Drone Delivery Challenge – which is a radio controlled multi-copter capable of maneuvering through obstacles and perform a spot landing. The event Eco-Friendly City, designed to spread awareness and foster sensitivity towards the environment among students, focused on eliminating carbon waste to produce energy entirely through renewable resources and to merge the city harmoniously with the natural environment. Robo-Soccer as the name suggests, was a fiery battle of soccer between robots with teams competing each other to score goals in the opponent’s territory and emerge victorious. Finally, Vertechx 8.0 engaged its participants through a series of challenging rounds covering an array of technical skills.
Speaking on the occasion, Krishnan said, “It was an honour and privilege to be the chief guest for Vertechx 8.0 – the prestigious annual National Level Technical Fest of MVJ College of Engineering. As a chief guest for the event, I felt that Vertechx 8.0 was the ideal platform to encourage students to take forward “Make in India” initiative so that they – the future of the country ensure that India becomes a global manufacturing hub. It was indeed my pleasure to address the young minds of the present day who will be the responsible citizens of tomorrow.”
“It’s a pleasure to witness the skillsets in today’s engineers and the competitive sprits enhancing the best in each one of them. I am extremely happy that the enthusiasm and the hard work put in by the students have resulted in such an outstanding show and I also thank all our faculties for making this event a huge success,” said Dr. N Gunasekaran, principal, MVJ College of Engineering.Posted in Campus
