Its purpose and scope is "to advance the theory, practice, and application of computer and information processing science and technology" and the professional standing of its members. It is the largest of 39 technical societies, supporting more than 200 chapters worldwide, organized under the IEEE Technical Activities Board.


Hack & Tackle, is an inter and intra-college hackathon. The first edition, conducted from 31st Jan - 1st Feb 2019, was lauded for its efficient logistics despite the grand participation from across the state. Keeping up with its intention to provide an unhindered platform for students to develop realistic and intelligent solutions to problems prevalent in the society, the second edition of this magnificent event will be held on 20 Feb 2020. Striving for the 2020 vision by stimulating the spark in the youth has been the principle motive behind this event. We hope this year’s edition beholds students surpassing expectations and coming out in flying colours.


Candidates must register for the challenge, and then submit an abstract. A track must be chosen, ie., the discipline under which the problem falls under following which a write-up on the plausible solution is required to be submitted.


Solutions from the ideation phase are shortlisted and invited to the onsite 24- hour hackathon, at the end of which, teams are expected to deliver a working prototype of the proposed idea.


NOTE : If your solution doesn't fit in the above track, fear not. You can apply with the open track expressing any suitable idea or concept that solves a real - world problem.
