The recently concluded Innovision 09 of the Rajarshi Shahu College of Engineering saw engineering colleges from around the city vying for top honours
The national level technical symposium of the Rajarshi Shahu College of Engineering (RSCOE),which was held,recently saw a mélange of ideas coming forward to collaborate for the various events held during the symposium. The event aptly titled Innovision 09 saw 35 colleges from the city participate in the various events held over two days.
Says Manhohar Bolwankar,a third year student and one of the organisers of the symposium,”The event which was spread over two days saw competitions like Robotics,IC engine car racing,model making,paper presentations,and C++ coding. Also there was an auto expo wherein,top end bikes like the CBR Honda and the Suzuki Hayabusa were on display.”
Speaking more about the event he says,the robotics section had two sub events in it namely – Black Tornado and Drag Racing. The Black Tornado was basically more of a robot war kind of an event whilst Drag Racing actually had miniature dragsters designed by the students,which competed around a specifically designed racetrack. The students of RSCOE walked away with top honours in the categories.”
Neeraj Gole,one of the winners says,”We were pitted against some of the best students from the other colleges for the drag racing and the IC engine car racing event. However,we managed to pull off the win. There were a couple of technical glitches with our car however everything went off smoothly on the racetrack. One of the most important things during such races is to ensure that the cars are in top shape and will be able to maneuver the racetrack so as to win the event.”
Adds Kunal Mudbidri,a fourth year student and one of the organisers,”The event aimed at showcasing some of the new trends,as far technology is concerned,that are being adopted by the world in various fields. Some of the competitions,which involved showcasing these ideas,were the model making and the concrete testing competitions. Other competitions like the paper presentation involved students making slide shows about various topics given to them and presenting a full length seminar on it.”
“Another major attraction for the event was the computer gaming section which saw a tremendous response from students from different colleges that had come to participate in the event. The games on display were Counter Strike-a tactical game,which is immensely popularity amongst the college going students,” says Manhohar P.
In addition to these events,there were also competitions like the technical and general knowledge quiz,which were hosted by various departments in the college. Other events like poster making were also held. The events of model making included building of bridges to span distances,” he adds.
Colleges like Pune Institute of Computer Technology,GS Moze College of Engineering,DY Patil College of Engineering also walked away with top honours in addition to the students of RSCOE.
