AXIS is the annual technical festival of Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology, Nagpur. AXIS started as a mechanical engineering exposition known as “ODYSSEY” in the year 2001 and over the years it has evolved into a much larger and diverse technical festival. AXIS is Central India’s biggest science and technology symposium. Over the years it has grown exponentially and is one of the most awaited national events. To begin with, AXIS includes a series of workshops on current and future technologies, awe-inspiring pro-shows, motivating guest lectures, emulous competitions and events and fun filled informals.
AXIS has been associated with companies like Microsoft, Coca-cola, Panasonic and Gigabyte amongst others and has made itself a fixture on the itinerary of college festivals in India. It hosts technical, management and recreational events which enables the students to pit their innovative ideas against one another in a competitive and educative atmosphere.
AXIS is identified as a festival solely managed and organized by the students form the very grass root level. Thus, it provides a great platform not just in terms of theoretical prowess but also gives a firsthand experience in management and organizational skills.
