HI-TECH 2016 CHAKRAVYUH This one was a feather in the cap of HI-TECH. The event saw mass participation in terms of the branches/courses it accommodated. The event coordinators took immense care of the fact that the event should be highly advertised and embrace all the students of MITGI. Though the event was a simple quiz, but it was made interesting by the theme of Chakravyuh. Everyone felt that he/she is in a war situation and was all alert during the whole event, with every sense fully immersed in it.

HI-TECH 2016 TECH PSY-
CHE (In Search of a Technical Soul)
In the long list of spectacular events held under Hi-Tech. Tech Psyche, an event of its own kind, was one of the events that electrified its participating souls to a whole new level. This was a new addition to the HiTech list, and with the new flavour of creativity with the soul of technology, this event truly touched everyone’s heart.
Each group had to solve a mystery by collecting evidences and following directions as a detective and also had to come up with a case story that they could think must have been. The group that came up with the closest story as designed by the event coordinators won and qualified for the last round. The last round, Campus Evils, came down the wire to every Individual being. Each participant had to collect the photos from all around the campus in thirty minutes. The captured photos must show the evils that they think must be removed to make the campus a better place.
In the first round, Selfie Trade which started a week before the main event, students had to take a selfie along with any household product and portray their marketing skills. The second round, TechHunt, the qualifiers were divided in a group of 6 members each, then they had to collectively solve a puzzle, to reach to the next question. 10 groups made it to the next round.
Students in contention
The third round, Beat the Clock, the added twist took everyone by surprise as the groups were reconstructed to form pairs. Each pair was then assigned a different task from twelve different categories, one of the two who successfully completed the task proceeded to the next round. Next round, The Room, again saw the regrouping to 6 a side.
Members of Tech Psyche Event
The judges for this event were Mr. Vikas Singh (H.O.D, CS) and Mr. Manish Saxena (Physics Dept.). The First Position was secured by Mudit Kapoor, Second by Hemant Kumar and Damini Bhola and Third Position was grabbed by Palak Agarwal. The event would not have been successful without the constant guidance of Faculty Convener Mr. Sunil Kumar and also the hard work of Student Coordinators Ishika Agarwal and Priyanka Sharma and CoCoordinators Aayushi Deep and Shubhi Shukla.
HI-TECH 2016 YOU KNEW IT Most spicy addition to the HI -TECH recipe this year “YOU KNEW IT”. The event was arguably the most popular event this year.
spective of the result, as they had been a part of something really spectacular. It consisted of 3 rounds and the 1st round involved questions based on memory i.e. our day to day life our roads, college, family, restaurants, and our own body as well.
What makes an event grand? Certainly the participants it has. The participants were the very soul of the event. When there is an atmosphere in which the free thinking is allowed to blossom, the shackles are allowed to be broken, where there are no limits to excitement and joy, and yet there is harmony. This is what this event was all about. The event coordinators kept in mind how they will manage the limited resources and also accommodate the load of entries. They already had some backup arrangements considering the fact that there may be more than expected participation, so much was the buzz of the event that they even had to arrange for a second leg of it. The second leg was also as successful and packed as the previous one. As a matter of fact, the event had to extend the projected time and was also given relaxation seeing the huge participation. Every person coming out of the hall had a grin on his face, irre-
The 2nd round “WORD ANTAKSRI” was perhaps more interesting, rather than making the chain of songs the contestants have to make the longest word chain possible.
Students participating enthusiastically
The 3rd round or final round “WHISTLE BLOWER ROUND” was between the qualifiers of the first two rounds, it tested the memory, knowledge, concentration as well as presence of mind of the participants. The first position was secured by Anant Singh (E.E., 2ndyr) and Puneet Sharma (M.E., 2ndyr) second position by Aishwarya and Tanvi (C.S., 1st year) and third position by Anuroop Gupta and Shreya Agarwal (C.S., 3rd year). The student coordinators were Aman Mishra and Kanika Rastogi (3rd year E.C.). The faculty convenors wereMs. Alpna Singh, Ms. Pragati Gupta, Ms. Ritika Tandon, and Ms. Lavi Agarwal.
HI-TECH 2016 CROSS ROAD It’s always a need to add new flavors but there is need to preserve the old taste too. This is what we actually think when we talk about the traditional HITECH event ‘Cross Road’. The event was organized in D-Block Auditorium. Students participated actively and zestfully in the event. Entries were in a group of 2. The event consisted of 4 rounds. First round was the qualifying round; a simple 10 question set was given to students.
Students paving their way to the victory
ARPITA BHATNAGAR The amount of participation of the students were to be seen by the fact that the coordinators of this event were forced to hold two phases of the first round, breaching the time limit they were given for conducting the event. The major attraction of this event was an electronic train made by Vaibhav Sharma (EC, 2nd Year) who was the member of this event. The train had a webcam attached to it which covered the live audience of the event. Vaibhav named this train as "Cross Road Express". This train's fame took Vaibhav Sharma to new heights that the local newspaper called him for interviewing about his train.
Around 100 groups were promoted for the next round. This round was PPT Cross Road Express based, containing 30 intuitive questions. Students were very much involved and every- The winners of the event were – one wanted to contribute in his way to the event. 1st - Sanchit Khanna (EE, 2nd Year) & Arpit Sharma (EE, 2nd The next round could see only 25 groups, which was about Year) searching the maximum number of words in one minute in a 2nd - Somya Kapoor (EC, 2nd Year) & Ilarika Sethi (CH, 2nd puzzle game played on laptop which was shown on a projector Year) to the audience as well.

HI-TECH 2016 MODEL & SOFTWARE EXHIBITION DEEPTI AGARWAL HI-TECH as the name says it all, there couldn’t have been much more apt to start such an extravaganza of various colors of an engineering college, with such an event. Final year students from various branches presented their research and project works in such a way that everyone was awestruck and speechless. There were various projects from Mechanical, Electronics and Communication, Computer Science, and Civil Engineering departments. The students presented their models with such grace that even the teachers were one of the listeners, that is the victory of a teacher when the student has something to tell that the teacher doesn’t know. The event looked simple but it was a result and hard work of all the students who coordinated, participated in the event as it required patience, perseverance and dedication to complete this tedious task. The event was graced by Chief Guest Mr. Nitin Tiwari (SSP Moradabad), an IIT-D graduate himself, but saw every project and demonstration with an inquisitiveness of a small kid, eager to learn. All the dignitaries including Mr. Neeraj Kumar Agarwal (Chairman, MIT), Mr. Arvind Goyal (Past Chairman, MIT), Mr. Y.P Gupta (Secretary, MIT), Mr. Anil Kumar Agarwal (Joint Secretary, MIT), Mr. Sudhir Gupta (Founder Chairman, MIT),
Prof. (Dr.) R.B. Saxena (Director General, MIT), Prof. A.Ghosh (Director, MIT), Dr. Manish Saxena were also present there. This event was well organized under the supervision and guidance of Mr. Simrat Singh Gill and Mr. Mohd. Illylas.

MITSA SPORTS MEET 2016 PRACHI SAXENA MITians show what their class is, every time they get a chance to showcase it. Not only in academics but, much more beyond that. Be it their mental exploration or their physical strength, they give it all to what is needed; things turn their way just because of their dedication, hard work and passion for excellence. Youth is characterised by his very qualities of enthusiasm, spirited efforts, never say die attitude, and the list is endless. Each and every of this quality was at display, and that too at its best, in the college’s annual sports fest, MITSA Sports Meet, The sports fest is a test of character of a student, he has to portray each and every quality which he has learnt as a student, to be a good sportsperson. The teamwork, during the relay races, the ability to push oneself during the dashes, to buck your friends during their various races and athletic competitions, all are organised to remind the students that only a healthy body can have a healthy mind. The day started with every participant taking the pledge that he will participate in the events keeping in mind the spirit of sportsmanship and
will never be part of anything unethical during the whole event.
