Computer Science and Engineering Department of Shri Ramdeobaba College of Engineering and Management has organized Polaris2K17, a national level technical symposium which was organized from 18th to 20th January, 2017. History of Polaris can be traced back to 11 years when it was first started to bring in the technical revolution in Nagpur. Including Polaris 2K17, Polaris has completed 11 successful years now. This year the participation was as high as 1000 students from and outside the college. Polaris is organized by the Compusys Society in association with the CSI Committee. The CSI committee of our department organizes various technical events throughout the year for its members. POLARIS can be considered as a hub of various technical events and workshops thus bringing in the technological awareness in students. We had TCS as our knowledge partner and Coca-Cola, Titan, HR Mentors, Disha Computers, CTel Solutions, SBI Bank and Videocon as our other sponsors.
POLARIS had under it, three technical workshops. One of them was the PhoneGap Workshop, in which industry experts helped participants to get started with programming in this multi-paradigm application language, which can be used for development of Mobile applications. The Angular JS workshop focused on gearing up participants to work on scripts and HTML which is widely used as a platform to create simple real-world applications from scratch. AngularJS will focus on teaching students about making online web applications. Languages like Java and XML were extensively covered during this workshop period. The Photoshop workshop was conducted for creative and photography enthusiasts who learned a great deal about this powerful image-editing platform.
We had a Robot Building Competition called Nemesis, where students were assigned a road map and they needed to build a robot to cover the path. We also had a literary competition, Lord Of Stage, where we judged the participants through various non-stage and stage rounds, making them aware about the competition they will face in literary field. To get the feel of a college event, we had fun events, like Mini Militia, a mobile based game, Hot Heads, a physical event.
Owing to the success of Polaris 2K16’s Project Competition, there was a Project Competition organized this year too, with industry experts coming from TCS to judge the participants project in the competition.
Many industry experts were being called upon to conduct workshops as well as judge the technical events. Also, Polaris has had associations with various industries and newly emerging start-ups. This year, POLARIS happened on a whole new-level to bring upon technical awareness about the current technologies among students and teachers alike.
