TechFest 2016 in IIT Bombay from December 16-18, 2016
Born in 1998 with the motto of promoting technology, scientific thinking and innovation, Techfest has surpassed 19 golden years of creating an unmatched aura of a science and technology spectacle year after year at the IIT Bombay campus at Powai, Mumbai. It is today well established as Asia’s Largest Science and Technology festival with more than 165,000 people in attendance and a reach of over 2500 colleges across India and over 500 overseas.
In its endeavour to provide an international platform for the youth to showcase their talents and skills in fierce competitions, displaying cutting edge technology and research from all over the globe, having world renowned personalities motivate the youth and promoting solutions to alleviate the common man of his banal yet significant problems, Techfest strives for one and all to get inspired and look up to.
Techfest is entirely managed by students of IIT Bombay with a three-tier team structure. The core committee consists of 23 members comprising of 1 Overall Coordinator at the helm and 22 Managers. Techfest is a true believer in the concept of a team of equals. Every brickbat is shared equally by the team as is in every bouquet. Although every aspect of Techfest is no closer to one manager than the other but for smooth functioning, certain portfolios are allocated to every manager.
The portfolios can be broadly categorised into two sections – administration and events. The administrative portfolios primarily include tasks like accounts, infrastructure, media and marketing, hospitality, publicity, web and creatives. The events portfolios include responsibility for each of the numerous happenings and initiatives taken by Techfest each year. A team of over 800 Coordinators and Organisers along with their respective managers work in sync to execute and implement the splendid spectacle called Techfest.
