Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology DAIICT

We have around 23 events from two domains i.e. technical and non-technical.


Each year we invite notable artists and speakers for the inaugural night which is attended by 2000+ people. A few artists and speakers who were invited in the past include Kunal Newar(Illusionist) , Abhiram Cuduvalli(Manager/Architect CISCO) and others.


1. i.Relay: Here’s where the Programming enthusiasts get to showcase their skills. They have to do it in teams of 3 where only 1 person codes at a time. Join the coding revolution.

2. i.App: Think your app is a game changer? This is where you can send in any kind of app - web, mobile, tablet, desktop - and make the best out of this opportunity.

3. i.Web: An event for Web Developers. A theme will be given to all participants two days prior to the event and they will have to build the website according to the theme and presentations will be conducted during the event.

4. i.Bot: Robotics has come a long way and i.Bot provides you a wonderful opportunity to build an autonomous bot to fulfil a problem statement and dive into the world of robotics.

5. i.Database: From Facebook to Zomato to your mobile phones, databases are everywhere! This is where modelling real-life scenarios and re-envisioning database designs come into play and players design their way through the given scenarios.

6. IoT Auction: [NEW] Students will engage themselves in a real-life auction where they will bid on a plethora of equipment. The task would be to build something from the same.

7. i.Biz: i.Biz provides a platform to young minds with business acumen to come up with plans to make it big. And you could also pitch in your start-up ideas and get investors!

8. Blind C: Confident enough about your coding skills to be able to write them down
blindfolded? (Well, not literally. But you’ll be screen blind!) Show us how you’ll do it.

9. i.Quiz: The hunger for quizzes is truly satisfied by i.Quiz, a tech-based quiz featuring mind-boggling questions for all the quizzing enthusiasts.
