Heritage Utsav Techfest 2019 was celebrated in the first week of April 2019. The IEEE EDS Center of Excellence HITK and the IEEE HITK Student Branch organized a plethora of events viz. Techtonic, Circuitricks, Game of Roads, Drift-o drop, League of Bots, Crossroads, innovation Challenge and Electrosprint. The events ranged from quizzing, competing with robots, solving puzzles, building circuits to presenting innovative ideas and concepts. The events spanned from 01.04.2019 to 03.04.2019. In addition to the host Institution, participants from 12 different Institutes from across the state viz. Institute of Engineering and Management, Aliah University, University of Engineering and Management, St. Xaviers University, St. Thomas Institute of Technology, Techno India Institute of Technology, Meghnath Saha Institute of Technology, Techno International, Modern Institute of Engineering and Technology, Budge Budge Institute of Technology, RCC Institute of Information Technology.

The  IEEE EDS Center of Excellence HITK and the IEEE HITK Student Branch organized a 2-day Autonomous Robotics Workshop  for the students of The Heritage School on 12.03.2019 and 13.03.2019. It was attended by 14 students who were assisted by 7 IEEE student volunteers.

In this workshop, the students learnt about robotics using a “hands-on” approach. The goal was to encourage them to consider Electrical and Electronics Engineering as a career and mostly understand that technology can be exciting.
