Tech Tatva ’16
It’s that time of year again where innovation meets incipient engineers and the result of which is Manipal’s biggest technical festival. Tech Tatva 2016 is here and primed to flabbergast and engage the attention of every student with even a shred of jugaad within them. Tech Tatva, ever since its inception, has been a major part of the institute and instils in everything that we here at MIT stand for. Spread over four days of workshops, talks, and events, the fest boasts of an atmosphere of condensed learning and some of the most eccentric and show-stopping events ever held under one roof.
With 35 workshops stretched over 20 categories, including the most sought after subjects under the sun, all the way to obscure knowledge on planning and financing a petrochemical refinery, Tech Tatva 2016 has them all. Of the various workshops some of the ones to watch out for include designing a stunt track; development of Android and iOS applications; making your own rocket launchers; trading on the stock market; using and configuring Arduino, learning computational software like Catia and Ansys; and even designing your own racecar.

Besides this myriad of workshops, Tech Tatva continues to raise the bar with its five featured events that are bigger and better than ever. Here is a list of the uniquely mentioned featured events of this year’s Tech Tatva:
1. Paper Presentation:
This event features a competition amongst the best minds from all around the country as they present their research papers on diverse fields across science and engineering.
2. Questionable Intelligence:
A quiz designed to test the participants on the latest developments, inventions and innovation across the fields of Science and Engineering.
3. Vedanth 6.0:
Vedanth is a platform that allows various participants to showcase their research in various fields at a university level. A lot of great innovation to be witnessed at this event.
Named exactly as it sounds, Robowars is a culmination of budding engineers that come together to design metal gladiators, which are then put into an all-out cage match for the crown.
5. Fuel RC 5.0:
In its 5th rendition, Fuel RC is back with even more surprises and twists in store as drivers from across the country participate in various stunt events and races at the biggest national level RC racing competition in the country.
Tech Tatva presents with it an unreal opportunity that allows students to learn and grow, and as we round the final two days before the start of the fest the time has come to indeed get passionately curious.
