The tech geeks, technocrats put in all their efforts scratching their brains, tickling their nerves to get out the best innovative technical ideas to showcase in the events. Special workshops by Mozilla, SAE and various other institutions were of great help to many tech geeks and made them learn new things. The TECH-EXPO on the other hand was a great technical carnival with companies like DRDO, TATA and BOSCH setting up their labs and displaying their new innovations in their respective fields.

Moving away from the hustle-bustle of technical and cultural events we come to the INFORMALS. The informals were made so as to entertain the crowd and provide endless fun to participants.
