Pragyan 2012 Details: Engineering is all about imagination and ingenuity. Rather than just theories and their application, it revolves around simpler domains such as indigenous thinking, common sense and elementary logic, all of which arise from the Supreme Intelligence, the “Pragyan” in us. Technology, as we know it today, is the manifestation of millenia of Pragyanic thought and action, which has unflinchingly served and enthralled mankind since the invention of the Wheel.
Pragyan, the annual Techno-Management festival of NIT, Trichy is a humble attempt to promote and foster this co-existential relationship between Man and Technology. The insignia, insinuating Man’s eternally progressive leap over the Wheel of Technology, is symbolic of Pragyan’s endeavour to inculcate the spirit of engineering, innovation and forward thinking among the youth. For over half a decade, Pragyan has worked tirelessly towards this goal, by churning out seven memorable editions, each of which has enlightened, emboldened and inspired an entire generation of engineers.
To the freshers, welcome! To the seasoned, welcome back, to this journey of exploration, revelation and awe. Come February 2012, NIT, Trichy will be the epicenter of a scintillating Celebration of Technology, and you are invited to the party!
