This will have great bearing on the Engineering Curriculum, exposure of industrial atmosphere to engineering students and subsequent placement of young graduating engineers in industries across the country. With the advent of globalization and opening up of Indian economy to outside world, competition among industries have become stiff. To solve their engineering problems they look up now to engg. Institutions. Similarly, there is an urgent need to prepare engineering students for jobs in multinational companies, by exposing them to newer technologies and engineering methodologies. These objectives can only be achieved well by bridging the gap between industry and the academic institute.

CULTURAL

FESTEMBER

Festember is the inter college cultural, literary and arts extravaganza of our college held usually in September. Misconstrued as a "fest in September", the actual origins of Festember is "A fest to remember". The fest has college students in South India swarming over to compete for the coveted Festember Rolling Trophy.

One of the major highlights of Festember has been the pro-nites which have seen celebrity bands come down and rock the campus alive with their foot tapping and soul swaying music. Also on the agenda are the various literary competitions split up between English, Hindi and Tamil along with the cultural and arts events.

 

NITTFEST

NITT has always believed in the philosophy that the development of an individual is not accomplished through pedantic learning alone but should be complimented by a healthy dose of co-curricular and extra curricular activities too. The foremost example of this philosophy is 'NITTFEST' - an annual extravaganza of fine arts!

During NITTFEST, departments square off against each other over two days, on an even keel, to battle over quizzes, debates, music, terpischorean delights and more - small battles fought under the umbrella of a big war. A war which shall on a pleasant Sunday evening, determine the best of them all. It is during such battles that the ceiling of belonging to the department merges and grows to its zenith. a time when heros emerge in all, heartbreak for some, ecstasy for others, but glory for the college and a treat for all.

It is thus evident that NITTFEST is more than just a fest - it is in effect, a tribute to the creative genius inherent in every Nittian. In keeping with its tradition, the high standards of NITTFEST assure the sponsor a high degree of exposure, one that spans a community of over 3000.


PRAGYAN (Technical Festival)

 Pragyan is the annual Techno-management Festival of the National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli, India. Since its inception in 2005, it has been held every year over a period of three and a half days during either the month of January or February. Every year, Pragyan sees participants from over 100 colleges from across the country. The idea for a technical festival originated with the institution's students, who also bore responsibility for planning and organization; organization was supported both by the institution's director and by alumni, and guided by an advisory committee drawn from the institution's faculty. The guest lecture series, meant to give students an opportunity to listen to, interact with and be inspired by top practitioners from various disciplines included lectures by eminent personalities.
