Event Description

‘The only place where your dream becomes IMPOSSIBLE is in your dreams’

Are you a dumbfounding creator and have astounding ideas. If yes then, TIC is the place where you can reveal all your passions. Come up with a fabricated idea that would change the course of human development, you think you have got all that potential to put an excellent idea in the form of a working model. But,

‘Waiting for an opportunity ….. The wait is over now ‘

TIC presents you a wonderful platform where you can showcase your innovative ideas in the form of a model, prototype, patent, cool apps or any software product in front of elegant Panel of Judges.


It’s time to think ‘out of the box’. Let the budding Einstein inside you take over, fire up your grey matter, and show the world what you are capable of.

We, team Techkriti’18 invite you from around the globe to unleash the future of technology by applying your ideas and imagination.

Many have tasted the sweetness of success here, now it is your turn to step up and strive for success.

  1. Sustainable Habitat: India is at the threshold of a major shift in the way human habitation is perceived. By the end of 2030, 250 million new urbanites are expected to join in Indian cities. The agglomeration will certainly provide increased economic impetus but poses significant social and environmental threat. Indian cities which are already struggling with poverty, slums, informality, pollution, and resource degradation, need a swift yet sustainable solution to extend a decent quality of life to every urban dweller. In order to achieve the coveted livability in our habitat, the domain has envisaged an integrated and multidisciplinary approach. The output of this exercise will be disseminated as an education policy and framework to achieve sustainable habitat in India.

  2. Energy: Energy is a critical input for India's development. Energy shortages and affordable energy access are major challenges facing India. Innovations in conventional energy supply systems (coal, oil, natural gas), energy efficiency and renewables are essential for India's growth. The TECHKRITI Energy initiative plans to create a roadmap to enhance the competitiveness of Indian industry in the energy sector by collaborative research, design and development, devise grand challenges for multidisciplinary research missions and enable disruptive technologies. India has the potential to achieve leadership in the Energy sector. Our goal is to create a framework to enable this.

  3. Advanced Materials: Ability of a nation to harness nature as well as to cope with the challenges posed by nature is determined by its knowledge of materials and its ability to develop and produce them for various applications. Advanced Materials are at the heart of many technological developments that touch our lives. Electronic materials for communication and information technology, biomaterials for better health care, sensors for the intelligent environment, energy materials for renewable energy and environment, materials for strategic applications and more. India has its own unique set of resource and technological challenges. The objective of the TECHKRITI India Initiative in this domain is to come up with research and education policies which will provide the developmental path for Advanced Materials for our nation.

  4. Environment: A clean environment is very necessary to live a peaceful and healthy life. But our environment is getting dirty day by day because of some negligence of human beings. It is an issue which everyone must know about.  An environment is called healthy environment when the natural cycle goes side by side without any disturbance. Any type of disturbance in nature’s balance affects the environment totally which ruins the human lives. Now, in the era of an advance living standard of the human being, our environment is getting affected to a great extent by the means of air pollution, noise pollution, deforestation, water pollution, soil pollution, acid rain and other dangerous disasters created by the human beings through technological advancement. Can you come up with an innovative policy/idea/model to protect our natural environment to keep it safe as usual forever?

  5. Cyber World:  With the advancement of the science and technology, the human race is trying to excel their proficiency to compete for the creations of nature. The cyber world is definitely the first step towards the same path. The Internet is something that mankind feels to be an essential part of the life. We are living an era where life would nearly come to a standstill without the use of this technology. The rapid growth of the internet and computer technology over the past few years has led to the growth in new forms of crime-dubbed cyber crime- throughout the world. Can you present something new to protect the world against cybercrime?
