Coordinated by : Prof. Nataraj Urs H D and Dr. Bharathi S H with the support of class teachers and lab instructors.

In Industry nobody expects an engineer to memorize everything and implement, instead they expect the engineers to refer to the required documents online during their design process. Texas has provided a wonderful opportunity for students to explore the art of searching through an online contest. STEPS in association with Texas Instruments India University Programme conducted an all India Level Technical online Contest for the students. The online contest DrishTI was OPEN BOOK type where the student would not require to prepare for attending the contest, instead for each question they were allowed to refer a document provided and understated the document to answer the question. The objective was not to test what student knew, instead to test the capability of referring the document and understanding it and also checking the amount of time taken for referring the document to answer each question without skipping the question was also the criteria for judging the winners.
