“Do not get obsolete like an old technology, keep innovating yourself”, says Sukant Ratnakar. This is what engineers are capable of!! MCA Department of K.K. Wagh Institute of Engineering Education and Research had organized a State Level Competition ‘ASCEND-2015’ that clearly brought about an innovation in the minds of our future engineers. The manifestation of the event was on 12th and 13th February, 2014. Chief Guest for the inaugural two-day event was Mr. Uday Wad from Seed Infotech who was not only astonished to see the number of participants but was also happy with the enthusiasm among them. As the tagline signifies, it was time for the youth to rise!!
ASCEND-2015 aided the students by the means of educational approach to gain technical empowerment and preparing them for their role as a dedicated software engineer. This could only be achieved by focusing on improvising the cognitive, technical and interpersonal skills of the students through a two-day event at their institute. We could see a humongous participation of 1400 students from Arts, Commerce, Science, Management and Engineering field. What was implausible was the cloud of competitive life force around students and the prizes worth Rs. 50,000 to be distributed among them. The more absorbed the students were, the more their energy levels would rise to an interminable level.
It was undeniably an event where the gusto among the participants was unbelievable. One the first day, there were competitions like Code Surgeon, Treasure Hunt and Blind Coding. First day accurately roasted the brains of engineers and presented a mind boggling end result to our judges. Second day, however, was a little less grilling than the previous day. The competitions on the second were Quiz Pro Quo, Counter Strike 1.6 and Canvas Wizard. Canvas Wizard had interesting topics to debate on and students were growling with enthusiasm to stand out in the crowd, just to notch more points for their team.
Well I must say, this intellectual event will surely set a benchmark in the history of events in K. K. Wagh Institute of Engineering Education and Research. Wake up fellas… You got to pace up with the competitive world out there!! Team of Page3nashik wishes luck to all of you, who aim to participate and win in such events. May the best man win!!
