Brief Report - Tatva '07 - Annual Tech Fest of Metallurgical and Materials Engg, VNIT

[FONT=&quot]TATVA’07: A RETROSPECTIVE[/FONT]


[FONT=&quot]The Annual Technical Festival of the Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology, Nagpur, had a successful inaugural edition which was organized from 12th to 14th January 2007. The three days of extravaganza witnessed an overwhelming participation from all parts of the country. [/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]Tatva’07 was inaugurated at the hands of Mr. L Pugazhanthy- Vice President of Non-Ferrous Division, Indian Institute of Metals, Kolkata on 12th January 2007 in the ceremony which was attended by some of the big names in the field of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering. The inauguration was followed by a special guest lecture on emerging field of Nanotechnology by Dr. B.S. Murthy, Professor IIT Chennai – that was appreciated by one and all present.[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]All the technical events witnessed a very large and enthusiastic participation from various colleges all around the country including IIT Mumbai, NIT Patna, NIT Tiruchirapally, NIT Raipur, NIT Jamshedpur, NIT Bhopal, NIT Rourkela, COEP Pune, MGIT Hyderabad, PSG Coimbatore, Anna University, KIT College Kolhapur and Bhilai Institute of Technology to name a few. The event had a remarkable coverage by the leading dailies like The Times of India, Nagpur Plus, The Hitavada, Lokmat,[/FONT][FONT=&quot]Loksatta, Navbharat Times, Dainik Bhaskar, Navrashtra and Indian Express and also in technical magazines like Metal News. Three days of Tatva were marked by all sorts of emotions like pride for victory, frustrations, joy and celebrations. [/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]The valedictory function marked the end of the technical paradigm which was presided by Dr. A.V. Ramarao, Technical Advisor Diffusion Industries and former Head of Department Metallurgy and Materials Engineering, VNIT, Nagpur on 14th January in the VNIT Physics Assembly Hall. It was followed by a magnificent META Movie Show organized for the students to relax after three days of exhaustion. The long journey of Tatva’07 ended with a dinner party at the VNIT campus. The participants were completely satisfied with the events and the hospitality provided by the organizers.[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]EVENTS[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]PAPER PRESENTATION [/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]It was one of the flagship events of the TATVA-07, the aim of which was to test the participants' knowledge in Metallurgy and Material science along with their presentation skills. The participants were required to present a paper on a variety of academic based subjects and were judged by prominent Professors. This category dealt with topics from the fields of Metallurgy, Materials Science and Nanotechnology. [/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]META[/FONT][FONT=&quot] QUIZ[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]An innovative approach to quizzing which was dedicated towards unraveling the realms of knowledge in the Metallurgists' mind. The quiz included crosswords, puzzles and visual rounds. [/FONT][FONT=&quot]This competition was open to all undergraduates and postgraduates of Metallurgical and Materials engineering. The event was conducted in two phases, crossword elimination followed by the quiz. We received huge response from Metallurgy students from all over the country.[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]MATH MODELLING[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]Participants were given challenging problems related to Mathematics and Science. The problems aimed to test their analytical and logical reasoning skills. This was an individual participation event. [/FONT][FONT=&quot]This competition was open to everyone. The participants were required to solve the problems on provided to them as per the rules. Use of any kind of calculator or any other electronic gadgets (including cell phones) was strictly prohibited. Eminent academicians, professionals were assigned to judge the event. The winner of the event was chosen on the basis of the logic used to solve the problem. [/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]CONTRAPTION[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]This event was designed to draw students away from conventional problem-solving techniques and provide them scope for imagination and creativity. The objective is to use ordinary gadgets and link various simple techniques to achieve a simple task in a complicated manner. The criterion for winning was the maximum number of energy conversions effected for performing the given task. Each team consisted of a maximum of 4 members. The problem statement was to melt a given amount of wax (10gms) in minimum possible time. The winning criterion was based on a formula which took into account the no of distinct energy conversions and the total number of links or the methods used in the contraption.
[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]METALLOGRAPHY CONTEST[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]This event was aimed to appreciate the participant's depth of knowledge in the field of metallography and the desired skills to produce a well prepared sample. The event was subdivided under several categories to generate wholesome participation and interest in the subject. [/FONT][FONT=&quot]This competition was open to all undergraduates and postgraduates in all branches of engineering. Various categories included were Fracture, Twinning, Nature in union with Metallurgy, Weld Metallurgy[/FONT][FONT=&quot] and [/FONT][FONT=&quot]Grain Diffusion among others. [/FONT][FONT=&quot]The participants were required to bring a soft copy of optical or SEM micrographs of any four different magnifications of the specimen adhering to the above mentioned categories. The participants were required to present the four micrographs and this was followed by a question- answer session. [/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]TRIVIA [/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]This was one of the most popular event where we offered some intriguing questions to each participant and the theme of the questionnaire included solving mathematical and logical reasoning puzzles. Similarly the participants were also tested by psychometric tests designed by a premier institute for higher education. Speed and Skill will were the parameters to be evaluated.[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]CASE STUDY[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]Over the past decade, there has been a large exodus of engineering and science graduates from their field of specialization to the IT and ITES sectors. Due to this there has been shortage of adequate talent in the manufacturing sector which is very vital for an economy. [/FONT][FONT=&quot]The objective of this case study event was to call upon some of the brightest minds to propose ways and means by which this grave situation can be addressed. The event thus helped the manufacturing sector to get the fillip and the boost that it well and truly deserves.
Some of the points that were required to be addressed were: [/FONT]
  1. [FONT=&quot]The scale of the proposal.[/FONT]
  2. [FONT=&quot]The feasibility of the proposal. [/FONT]
  3. [FONT=&quot]The monetary and logistical requirements of the proposal.[/FONT]
  4. [FONT=&quot]The gestation time for the proposal, i.e. the time required for the proposal to be fully implemented. [/FONT]
  5. [FONT=&quot]What the proposal demands from the government, private enterprises and educational institutions? [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]ON THE SPOT MODEL MAKING[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]The participants were required to construct a specified aerodynamic structure within the constraints of time and material provided by the organizers. It tested the participant's creativity, precision, technical ability and aptitude under pressure. The task to be accomplished and the winning parameters were declared at the beginning of the competition thus making everyone sweat from the same level without any initial preparation.[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]AMATEUR QUIZ[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]The event was specifically organized for the school students who would be the budding engineers of tomorrow. It provided a platform for the students to understand the basic underlying principles of the field of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering. The quiz was aimed to promote Metallurgy and Materials as a viable career option. Also the participants were provided with an opportunity to understand the working of various state-of-the-art equipments at the Department. [/FONT]

Re: Brief Report - Tatva '07 - Annual Tech Fest of Metallurgical and Materials Engg,

I think Mods / admins can close this thread. This was for Tatva '07 and was started years back.
