“Technology? There’s no future in it,” said some people. But ideas shape the course of history and the giant leap mankind has taken shows us the impact of technology. Technology is not an event, it’s just part of the everyday learning. And why not celebrate this part of our everyday life? This is Pragyan 2016 put into simple words. The annual international Techno-Management fest of NIT Trichy, Pragyan is completely run by students, with a volunteer workforce of more than 700 students.
Pragyan is the first student-run organization in the world and the third overall next only to London Olympics and Manchester United to get an ISO 20121:2012 Certification for Sustainable Event Management. Scheduled to be held from 25th February 2016 to 28th February 2016, Pragyan sees thousands of participants every year. Pragyan presents an opportunity to innovate, for ideas to evolve into reality.
Innovation and technology go hand in hand, and from there stems the need to know, use and celebrate technology. With teams from over 60 countries taking part in the contests, Pragyan hosts more than 50 events spanning across 11 genres. These clusters depend whether the event is circuital, non-circuital, managerial, design based, etc. Apart from the prize money, these events provide an excellent platform to learn, compete, show-off and have fun.
Pragyan is not just about events. The Guest Lecture series organized by Pragyan is one of the best and the stage has seen quite a number of managerial genies, tech-wizards, hotshot entrepreneurs, media moguls; each one, a professional in their field. Marshall Strabala (Studio Head, Burj Khalifa), T.S.Krishnamurthy (past Chief Election Commissioner), Suneet Tuli (founder, Akash tablet) are some of the many names that have made their mark at Pragyan.
What good is a tech-fest without the stages seeing a good verbal joust? Thus came ‘Crossfire’, a panel discussion, which aims to provide a global platform for the academia, industry and government to interact with the fraternity.
Pragyan 2015 witnessed a stellar panel with Mr.M. Chandra Dathan, Mr. Shyam Chetty, Dr. Damodar Tripathi etc, moderated by Dr. Sumanth C Raman. Every year, Pragyan teams up with the best technological organizations to come up with challenging and useful workshops, just for the participants. The 2016 edition will have workshops based on Haptic Robotic Arms, IC Engines, Cloud Computing, Cyber Warfare and Security, Golang, Image Processing and more. Pragyan also has a high social responsibility quotient and organizes year round activities for the same.
The varied exhibitions offer a sneak peek at what the world is working on. Along with this, the students of NIT Trichy, under the banner of ‘Sangam’ display models developed by them on various problems. And the fun element of Pragyan, ‘Infotainment’ delivers an exciting mix of knowledge and entertainment through various artists.
BlogAdda takes immense pride in partnering with NIT Trichy for Pragyan. You cannot miss these golden days to immerse yourself in the finest of life that Pragyan offers, be it as an artist, a student, a professional or simply a spectator.
