ASCEND 2016 the technical fest of Department of Computer Science and Engineering was inaugurated on 05th August 2016 by Smt.Reena Rajan - Account Delivery Owner, Tata Consultancy Services. The theme for the event was ‘Digi Carnival’. Eight events were organised during the two days. The students of M.Tech and B.Tech along with the faculties had an interaction with the Chief Guest Smt.Reena Rajan at our department library. The interaction enlightened the students about the need of doing internship in a good IT industry. She also gave a glimpse of the trends that would play significant roles in the upcoming future.
The department hosted a website for the technical festival designed by our final year student Jerin Joseph (http://www.ascendified.com/) and an android application developed by our final year student Joe Abraham (Ascend16 APK).The third semester students developed a blog ( http://ascend2k16.weebly.com/) for the promotion of the technical festival.
The total prize money for the events was 37,000/-. On 05th August 2016 there were four events - Tech Wizard, Hardware Huddle, Hackathon and Web Design with a total participation of 160 students.
