JNTUH techno feast showcases students' talent
Talents galore: JNTUH University Industry Interaction Cell organised a unique first of its kind project expo for the JNTUH-affiliated engineering and pharmacy students.
The Techno Feast 2011, the technical festival organised by the JNTU Hyderabad, provided a platform for students to showcase their skills in various branches of engineering apart from making them interact with the industry heads. The programme organised by the University Industry Interaction Cell (UIIC) saw students from nearly 30 colleges sending 81 projects from 13 branches of engineering. Subsequently, forty-four projects were shortlisted by a team of specialists from Industry and Academia. Finally, three prizes were awarded for the best projects of each engineering stream, according to A. Rama Krishna Prasad, Director, UIIC.
The first prize consisted of a trophy, a merit certificate and a gift. In addition, as an encouraging gesture Globarena Technologies also came forward with one year, six months and three months free subscription for GEMS programme for the first, the second and the third prize winners respectively.
The programme was inaugurated by JNTUH Vice-Chancellor D.N.Reddy who advised the budding outgoing engineering students to focus on practicality and actively involve themselves in acquiring domain knowledge. He appreciated the initiative from UIIC and also advised to make it a full-fledged academic activity with the close association of Industry. He also launched the website - www.jntuhuiic.com – that would be an interface between university-industry, faculty and students. A souvenir was also released by the Registrar G.Tulasi Ram Das and Rector, M.Chandra Shekar.
