Sannidhya 2K16

By: Team PenTastic

The Civil Engineering Society provides an exclusive and effective platform for learning, exploring, sharing and analysing various ideas and knowledge and invoke inquisitiveness and interest among the students for research and innovation in the field of Civil Engineering and also intends to create opportunities for students to enrich and discover their potential by guiding them towards new technologies and preparing them for out-of-the-box thinking to face the real world challenges. For these intents and purposes, the Civil Engineering Society instituted Sannidhya, the annual Civil Tech fest of CET.

Sannidhya is one of the most awaited events of our college every year. It is a three day extravaganza of talent, skills, learning and loads of fun, a huge prize money at stake, goodies to be won and participation certificates for all. Since its inception in 2004, Sannidhya has achieved great success in discovering new talent. The objective of Sannidhya is not only confined to the fest and celebrations; its objective is to welcome new ideas, innovations and build a network between the different aspects of civil engineering from different corners. It is exclusive for the students of Civil Engineering, but students of different branches can also participate in certain events.

Though the fest has been held every year for the past 10-15 years, this time it was held on a very large scale. The Civi Fest started with a Civil Engineering Department alumni meet on the 27th of March. It was marked with the guest talk by Dr. N.C Pal, the Executive Engineer of Water Resources, Government of Odisha, who is an alumni of the first batch of CET. The agenda was to improve departmental activities and placements.
