Technology is at its best when it tests the young engineers and Abhiyantriki 07, the annual technical festival of K. J. Somaiya College of Engineering Vidyavihar, aptly exemplified this notion. Held on 20th October in the college premises, this inter college tech fest witnessed a great response with 35 engineering colleges participating. It served as a platform for students to showcase their talents in the different sections. Open for public viewing, Abhiyantriki witnessed a huge crowd which included both technical & non-technical people.

The festival had as much as 19 events in all. The highlight of every technical festival, Robotics, received a huge participation as always. The festival also comprised of various workshops ranging from Engine Workshop to Aeromodelling and Aquabotics Workshop, technical paper presentations, technical debates and quizzes. Events such as Water Rocketics, Junkyard Wars and Drag Race analyzed the creative skills while the Technical Treasure Hunt and Simulator Car were an impressive fusion of technology and fun. Students as well as faculty members participated in technical exhibition to present latest technologies as well as innovative designs.

The major attraction of the day was the Solar Car made in Germany by Mr.Louis Palmer which was on display to create awareness about global warming and alternate fuel sources.

BARRACUDA 600, the car made by the students of the college to participate in FORMULA STUDENTS CHAMPIONSHIP GERMANY was also open for viewing.

Students participated in every event with equal interest and curiosity.

Abhiyantriki was in association with BIG FM as radio partners. Bharat Petroleum, ICICI Bank & many other sponsors contributed to the huge success.

Festivals provide a recreation to students from the daily study routine. Nevertheless the efforts that go into making the event a success are equally enjoyable. Truly, there could not have been a better way to celebrate the 25th Academic year of the college. ‘Abhiyantriki’ literally was a day of ‘Engineering’.
