CURRENTS is the annual technical symposium of the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering of NIT Tiruchirappalli, or quite simply, The Trical Department. CURRENTS was first incepted in 1990s as a humble affair, by a group of enthusiastic members of the EEE Association. Recent editions have seen the event grow exponentially, with the latest edition bearing witness to this fact, recording an unheralded footfall of over a thousand participants.
Conveniently scheduled during the uneventful mid of a longish even semester – FEBRUARY 14 & 15, CURRENTS provides the perfect platform to showcase technical acumen, compete with peers and most important of all, imbibe inspiration. It has on offer, a plethora of innovative events, state-of-the-art workshops and the best guest lectures from the most revered academicians and industrialists.
• Lab Rat Race (A race to finish with electronic, electrical and MATLAB hurdles)
• Circuitrix (A circuit debugging contest)
• Currents Tech Quiz
• Line Follower Competition
• Electronic Arts (Art the Trical Way. Make art from electronic components)
In addition there is also Colloquium, the technical paper presentation event. There are loads of prizes to be won in each event. You can go home with cash prizes worth upto Rs. 40,000 !!!
In the workshops arena there are five amazing workshops lined up
• FPGA System Design Workshop
• ARM Microcontroller Workshop
• Gesture Recognition Based Robotics,
• Poles nd’ Zeros – A workshop on Control Systems
• Analog based Power Electronics
There are Guest Lectures from experts from Texas Instruments and Schneider Electric. Finally, there is DHRUVA – the award for the most creative EEE student. Do not miss out on the fun as this event is not the ordinary answer the tech questions type. Accommodation will be provided for those who need it within the institute campus. So, come this February, the largely barren campus of NITT will be converted into a hub of activity, with the iconic EEE Department building at the center of this buzz, teeming with the brightest and the most eager minds of the field.
And if current trends are anything to go by, the latest installment will be the biggest yet- something you would barely want to miss.
