hello guys. this is chetan n i m a mechanical engg.
i m planning to have a magazine for our branch can u suggest me some names........ n even some tips to make it more interesting
@Anoop Mathew • 03 Aug, 2011 Re: on collage magazines...........!!!!!

Hai Chetan,

Nice initiative. What do you have in mind? Is it going to be a magazine completely related to engineering or is it for publishing articles, poems, drawings, etc?

Make sure that you edit it well before publishing, especially if it's creative ideas that you want to display. Also the process is not going to be any easy, so keep a good content column. If you have a lot of similar topics, mix them up with other content on different pages.

Also make sure that the fonts are legible enough and strike the eye. Do not go for a lot of crazy fonts. Try to separate only the fonts in the title section, the rest you can use a common font.

If you are including pictures, make sure that you set the pixel rate properly or else you'll be in for a shock after the magazine gets printed. As for the content, do not copy and paste. Try to include own ideas, but make sure your department in-charge sees that the content is proper.

The rest is all up to your talent and interest.

As for the name, i'll suggest it once you give me the description of your magazine.

hi anoop,
my magazine is not about extra cricular activities in collage campus. but it would deal about new innovation, ideas ,tech n stuffs related to these...(as u said it would more related to engg). i would even like to include about career n scope in engg.
@Ankita Katdare • 04 Aug, 2011 Re: on collage magazines...........!!!!!

We had started a magazine in our college for computer science department. We called it 'The Byte'
Is your magazine for all branches or only for mech department?

PS: Thread moved to appropriate section.
@ISHAN TOPRE • 04 Aug, 2011 • 1 like Considering the above suggestion that the magazine will be technology oriented (mechanical oriented) give it a name which will make it sound like technology. For example, our department magazine is called "The Differential" and College magazine is called " Catalyst"

As you are going to include career related things too, it should look like you are trying to "make a difference" for students. So how about naming your magazine on a word synonymous to *Change*?

P.S: A brand name is permanent. Think thrice before choosing it. 😀
@chetan HC • 04 Aug, 2011 Re: on collage magazines...........!!!!!

ya its for mech department......

@chetan HC • 04 Aug, 2011 ya i agree, but i need a name that sounds technical......

Infinite Ingenuity
Well that's going to take some time pronouncing it correctly. Megastroke will do.
@Anoop Mathew • 06 Aug, 2011
chetan HC

That sounds less 'technical'.
@chetan HC • 07 Aug, 2011 guys how about mechzines or speakmech....?????

@Ankita Katdare • 07 Aug, 2011 Make it 'Mechazine'. Sounds just like Magazine & it is technical. 😀

In an engineering college, the best name for magazine, which i think is 'CrazyEngineers'. But make sure to have copyright??

@Anoop Mathew • 26 Dec, 2019 • 2 likes

I am pretty sure that our young friends at CE would be having certain interesting magazines running at their colleges. Interested to know what people would be discussing these days for magazine names as digital technologies have advanced to a point where even trucks have been given names like the 'Tesla Cybertrukk' and 'MG Hector Internet Inside'

@Durgesh Srivastava • 26 Dec, 2019 • 1 like

@Kavya Burramolla • 26 Dec, 2019

Here are some of my suggestions: 

For Electrical magazine I’d suggest Elwitech mean electrical-wire-technology which relates basic terms of electrical department.

For Mechanical magazine I think MechCrate will work.

For Electronic magazine - Gatecol will be cool. The reason why Gatecol is electronics without knowledge of gates & Columbs cannot be. 

@Vinay Mishra • 26 Dec, 2019 • 1 like

Some more names that I suggest are:

1) CollegeBook.

2) TechZine.

3) Tech-Magazine.

4) YellowHelmet Engineers.

5) Open circuit.

6) TechBook.
