Tech Fests Expose You To The Technological World. Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Miss One

Life is full of experiences, adventures, success, failures, and the list goes on. College life happens to be one of those phases where we experience it all and are exposed to a whole new surrounding. Well apart from studying that is. To the uninitiated, tech fests are the best way to achieve great heights, where knowledge is present in abundance and creativity is flowing everywhere. Not to mention, when you participate in such fests, you get to know about several technological innovations and developments. It's not limited to that; the experts who come as speakers can enlighten you, the exhibits (projects) can inspire you to grow as an individual and embrace the changing times. So, without further ado, here are five activities which are a part of tech fest and the reason why you shouldn't miss out on them.

Machine learning

Well, with every second gone, technology is evolving, and that's why a tech fest becomes crucial in your life since it brings a glimpse of an entire year to you. Machine learning is one of the latest trends in the tech world, and you get to have the best insights from the workshops conducted around the same. There are more things to look forward to, keep scrolling.

Events clusters

This is one of the best parts of a tech fest, where a college organises photography contests, smart grid modelling, general quizzes, etc., bringing an opportunity for your all-round development. 

Campus ambassador

Once you participate in annual technical symposiums, you will also benefit from waivers and discounts on workshops, cash incentives, letter of appreciation, and lots more.


It's the best way to develop as an individual. When you write a research paper, you make a lot of efforts to gather material, prepare for presentations and participate in colloquiums. And if you succeed in writing a good paper then there's a high chance that it gets published in some journal.

Coding competitions

Nothing new, right? Well, it gets exciting when several other college students are competing against you and glory awaits. These competitions intensify when conducted on a large scale like tech fests.So, how can you be a part of such tech fests?
