“Think big and don’t listen to people who tell you it can’t be done. Life’s too short to think small.” — Tim Ferris.
Global Academy of Technology, Bangalore hosted the Open Day on the 11th of November, 2017. It saw participation from over 100 students of the college in various events — project exhibition, poster designing, puzzle solving and even photography. The talent exhibited in the event won the praises of all the jury members — which consisted of 13 distinguished members from various fields.
The event kicked off at sharp 10 AM, starting with the Project Exhibition. Over 50 students showcased their talents in various fields of engineering ranging from electronics, computer science to civil and mechanical. They solved several problems which are experienced in day to day life. Among the several projects, the most notable ones were: A quadcopter, DNA structured bridge design, GSM based automated irrigation module, smart dustbin and voice controlled smart home automation. The jury was really impressed with the idea behind the GSM based irrigation module, and how it was implemented on a miniature scale. Even the DNA structured bridge design was praised by the jury. The specialty about the design was that it did not require any sort of extra support to hold its own weight.
The jury — which consisted of reputed academicians as well as industry leaders — including Dr. Amaresh Chakrabarti, Senior Professor at IISc Bangalore; Mr. Vinod Chippalkatti, Vice President, Centum Electronics Limited, Bangalore and former scientist at ISRO; Mr. Vinay Dora, Founder and CEO at Crowd Product; Mr. Vijetha Shastry, Consultant — Partnerships and Outreach at BHIVE Workspace, praised the students’ hard work and dedication. They also gave valuable tips to the budding entrepreneurs of tomorrow. The audience, presenters as well the jury interacted with each other using the Crowd Product solution. The audience rated each presenter and the jury provided tips and feedback using the solution.
Poster designing and photography competition also saw a good number of participation from the students, showcasing amazing talent. The creativity of the students were clearly visible in the posters and photographs exhibited at the event.
Dr. Geetha Prakash, Director of Industry Institute Interaction Cell, Global Academy of Technology and Dr. N Rana Pratap Reddy, Principal, Global Academy of Technology needs special mention and appreciation for providing such a wonderful platform to the students for showcasing their talents. The event wouldn’t have been possible without their sincere efforts.
