"Technical skill is mastery of complexity, Art is mastery of simplicity."

An artist is the one who makes a perfect balance between both. TechArts is an event which aims at challenging the brain with unconventional problems which intrigue the artist within to come up with a rather logical solution. It includes brain teasers, puzzles and challenges based on technical topics like Mathematics and implementation of algorithms. This one day enthralling event demands you to delve into an enigmatic space and pave a way out, fighting against the time. Check the website for updates.

"There is only one thing stronger than all the armies of the world: and that is an idea whose time has come."

ICon (Innovative Conference) is an event which aims to bring hidden and unknown ideas/innovations in front of the world.
