We request all our existing members to help us reach out to all the engineering students in India so that we do not miss out on any interesting project.
@Ankita Katdare • 19 Jan, 2015 Update: Some of the most amazing entries in Mechanical and Civil categories have been received. We are more excited than ever before about the contest! 👍

Thanks to @Jason Estibeiro who sent us the image. 😀
@Kaustubh Katdare • 21 Jan, 2015 • 2 likes Update: Mechanical engineering category is dominating all the entries! >70% of the entries so far are in Mechanical engineering category. It's quite surprising for us! 😀 I hope the entries in other categories will catch up in coming days. We will have some time for the last entries. But a big 👍 to mechanical folks!
@Ankita Katdare • 23 Jan, 2015 Amazing set of entries in electronics category too. We are looking forward to a stiff competition between CS, Civil and Chemical too. ☕

Share it far and wide with your friends, engineers!
@Kaustubh Katdare • 01 Feb, 2015 Update: I'd encourage every third and final year engineering student to participate in the discussion - without making any assumption about their projects. Big or small - every project should participate. You never know what your chances of winning are!
@Ankita Katdare • 08 Feb, 2015 Amazing set of projects from participants in Electronics & Robotics categories. We can't wait to declare the shortlisted candidates. The clock's ticking. 19 days to go! 😁
@Ankita Katdare • 18 Feb, 2015 9 Days to go! The countdown truly begins. When CEans see the shortlisted entries, you will all be excited too! 👍 ☕
@Ankita Katdare • 23 Feb, 2015 LAST 5 DAYS TO GO. Should the deadline be extended? 😁 😏
@Kaustubh Katdare • 23 Feb, 2015 We're considering extension of the deadline for the contest. Several students have contacted asking for more time to submit projects. The final decision to extend the deadline will be announced tomorrow. Stay tuned.

We're super excited for the second round!
@Kaustubh Katdare • 25 Feb, 2015 Update: The deadline has been extended. Details: - https://www.crazyengineers.com/threa...eadline-extension-and-round-ii-details.79037/

Common Sense Based Tip: Avoid submitting projects you've copied from the Internet. It's just a waste of time for you and us. Several entries which were re-written copies of existing projects have been eliminated right away.
@Ankita Katdare • 26 Feb, 2015 • 1 like Two days to go, before the first shortlist appears. Extensive reading is happening at CE Headquarters. 👍☕
@Ankita Katdare • 09 Mar, 2015 Last 2 DAYS! First Round entries come to a halt tomorrow midnight. 😁 Keep an eye on the shortlist here: https://www.crazyengineers.com/threa...und-ii-of-indias-best-academic-project.79122/
@Ankita Katdare • 09 Mar, 2015 Finally, we come to the last day of entries for Round 1!
~ 15 hours to go! Submit your entry ASAP.
@Kaustubh Katdare • 10 Mar, 2015 • 1 like Applications to round I of the contest are no longer being accepted.
@Ankita Katdare • 14 Mar, 2015 Tomorrow's the last day for publishing the shortlist from Round I. 😀 We have selected 151 projects so far out of hundreds and hundreds of entries. It has been a long, tedious process of reading and verifying. We look forward to an even more amazing Round II. All the best to all participants.
