Prodigy 2016


“Prodigy”, is the annual technical symposium of the Production Engineering department of the National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli (NIT-T). It is held in the month of March, and attracts roughly 1000 students from all over the country. It has served as a platform for students to interact and learn from their peers across different institutions. Last year in the lead up to Prodigy, for the first time ever, we hosted an outreach event in Chennai and Trichy. We plan to extend our reach by conducting it in Bangalore this year! We are all really excited in presenting Prodigy this year, which will be the biggest and the best one till date!


Events List:

1) Design Challenge:
Unleash your engineering skills, creativity and intuition, and structure your ideas into a well-defined 3D model for the given design problems. Designing is to be done using CAD MODELLING SOFTWARES. The challenge is to design the product, keeping in mind its form and function, aesthetics and ergonomics, with an emphasis on its user friendliness. The best design wins!

2) Paper Presentation:
Been working on new ideas lately? Here’s the perfect platform for you to showcase them amidst a wide range of papers on the latest innovations and review of the existing technologies.

3) Engine Assembly:
IC engines give life to dead beasts. As the otto cycle spins, it unleashes the power and pumps in adrenaline which will leave you trembling. Incur the fury of the otherwise pissed off pistons, catching fierce speeds and out-throttling each other for their mark at the podium by assembling the disintegrated IC engine back to life.

4) Quiz:
Passionate about Science and Technology? Think you know the if’s and how’s of how everything works? Then Prodigy ‘16 Inter Collegiate Quiz is the right place for you!. Questions will be from various fields such as science, technology, automobiles, industrial concepts and general working of everyday machines. Prelims of the quiz will be held in two cities (check site for updates) and the winners from those cities will directly qualify for the final round of Quiz to be held during Prodigy ‘16 in NIT Trichy.

5) Davinci:
True engineer is one who applies the knowledge learnt, and builds stuff. Get your hands dirty with this event, which is sure to test your perseverance and skill as you attempt to build your own product. Involving hands-on fabrication work, this event promises to be the ultimate test for the engineer’s mind and body.
