Core Encore

Every industry faces myriad problems in its day-to-day functioning; Problems, which you as engineers must be able to tackle, or at least comprehend when you face the challenges of the real world. For that to happen, one must experience what the real world will be like beforehand. To that end, DAKSH, in collaboration with TCS will be organizing an event ‘Core Encore’, where TCS will be providing statements faced by the industry to which solutions must be presented by the students. The first round will take place on the Campus Commune platform which will be followed by the Grand Finale at SASTRA. For everyone out there looking to make a difference, this is your chance. Don’t miss it!
Cash Prize: 50000/-

Start Tank Incubation Challenge

PayPal is a global payments company that has been at the forefront of the digital payments revolution. PayPal India launched Start Tank — their startup incubator located at PayPal’s Chennai development center — as an initiative that aims to nurture and support the creation of a new generation of tech companies. It not only offers them initial infrastructure and mentorship, direction and encouragement, but also gives the startups a chance to work alongside some of the best minds in the field.
SASTRA is happy to announce that PayPal is co-sponsoring DAKSH15, the international techno-management extravaganza of SASTRA University.
As part of this mega event, PayPal will be conducting the Start Tank Incubation Challenge aimed at identifying student entrepreneurs across colleges in Tamil Nadu, who would eventually want to float their own business ventures after graduation.
The event will be held on 21 February 2015 at SASTRA University. Applications for the competition can be submitted online at http://chennai.starttank.com/apply.
The attached poster gives you additional details. We request you to circulate it among students and forward it to your entrepreneurship and innovation cells. Please also display it at prominent online and offline spaces.
For more questions, please write to starttankchennai@paypal.com

Hackathon

Get rid of all your preconceived notions of the term ‘Hackathon’, as PayPal is all set to redefine it this DAKSH ’15. This giant of e-commerce will be organizing a Hackathon, in which a real-time problem faced by the company in the payments domain will be given as a problem statement (to be revealed soon). The best solutions to these problems might just be implemented in the payments space by PayPal, in addition to receiving exclusive gifts from them. Do not miss this opportunity to sharpen your business acumen and fine tune your coding skills. You might just be the change that the world is looking for!

Events

Originally envisioned for the Engineering disciplines alone, Daksh has evolved to encompass the disciplines of Management and Law as well, to now serve as the quintessential amalgamation of engineering, management, law, entertainment and social diversities.

The most recent version DAKSH OCTA, was centered on counterin terrorism with students surpassing themselves in getting innovative for a safer tomorrow. This year's edition, in keeping with the growing realization that our ancestors had a veritable mine of knowledge that we are yet to delve into, will be centered on the grand theme of 'Ancient Wisdom and Modern Technology'.

Rama's Bridge

One of the greatest architectural marvels of Indian Mythology is the bridge to Lanka constructed by Rama and his army. It may or may not be a legend. But even if it is, legends always have a basis in fact. That fact is what you have to explore in this event.
If you had ever been fascinated by Rama’s bridge and wondered how it had been constructed, this is your chance to find out for real. Daksh gives you a chance to build a bridge that floats on water without any external aids. Let the hypotheses begin!

Forge your thoughts and construct an aircraft that propels through, but with no intrusion beyond, the vicinity specified. Experience the true spirit of engineering.

General: The participants are requested to stick to the rules while building the glider.

  • Length of the Aircraft: Minumum of 15cm
  • Aspect Ratio: 5 to 6
    [Aspect ratio = length of the wing/ width of the wing]
  • Launching Mechanisms: Elastic, thread, hand-chuck etc. Strictly no electronic launching mechanism should be equipped

Auto Bot

The underlying principle behind a line follower is ridiculously simple: Just switch on a motor when the light reflected from a coloured surface reaches the receiver connected to your bot. Now, an autobot works on the same principle, but the basic idea is expanded beyond a single line and is extrapolated to work for a grid system. Remember that grids are just crisscrossed lines, and that the bot you design today could very well be a prototype for auto-navigation tomorrow. Your idea can change the world!

Meccar

Thermodynamics will tell you that self-propagating machines that will run on infinitely can never be produced. It is, however, possible to improve mechanical efficiency considerably and make a fully mechanised device work under its own steam for a quantifiable period. Your job it to integrate this into a fully mechanised car.
Design one and thrust it to a distance difficult for your opponents to reach. Bring on track your powerfully energized roadster capable of traversing any kind of slope, which by the way, is your only obstacle. It does not get easier than this.
There is only one judging criterion: The distance that your car has travelled. You can make a car that runs up and down a slope, can’t you?

Green electricity

One topic that never grows old, and is likely to remain that way for as long as we shall all live is that of green energy. One school of thought says that if left unchecked,population will grow uninhibitedly and will finally be taken care of by nature. That is what seems to be happening in our country. Uninhibited growth of population. It may be brought back into reason by nature in the future, but till then, taking care of the vast population’s energy needs falls on the shoulders of us engineers. So design a circuit to produce green electricity, keeping in mind that fossil fuels may well be exhausted within our lifetimes.
Exhibition:
The Participants should exhibit their circuit at the time of Daksh to the organizers and judges. The circuit should be fully functional and the application of the circuit should be clearly displayed.


Judging Criteria:

The following criteria will be considered in decreasing order of priority.

  • Functionality and Application of the circuit.
  • A fully functional circuit.
  • Innovative and Creative Designs.
  • A circuit combining multiple disciplines.
  • Presentation of the circuit.
  • Cost effectiveness of the circuit.
  • Scoring scheme lies completely in the hands of the Judges at the time of the event.

ELECTRADE

The name says it all. In this event, the virtual money that you will be provided with must be used to buy the equipment required for making the circuit connections. The real fun begins then. In this amalgam of business acumen and academic knowledge, one not only has to economically buy the parts one has to use, but also actually use the parts to make your idea, a reality. The best circuit designers may not necessarily win. Street smarts are the order of the day!

Problem statement and Event format:

  • At the start of this event, each team will have some amount of virtual money allotted to them.
  • A set of problem statements will be displayed to all teams in an Incomplete and Encoded form.
  • Each team have to buy a problem statement with the virtual money they already have.
  • After extracting the original statement, if the team is confident that they can complete the task, the team can proceed with designing and implementation.
  • Some questions may also include implementation in MULTISIM along with practical circuits.
  • If any team is unable to do the task, they can buy new problem statements among the list.
  • Discussion between two teams is strictly prohibited.
  • The components required for implementation should be purchased with the virtual money.
  • If you buy a component and later realize that it's of no use to you, you can trade it in the dummy store in return for something at a lesser price than that on the price tag.


Judging Criteria:

  • The basic fulfilment of the problem statement.
  • Management and Innovativeness.
  • Time taken to generate the right output.
  • The amount of money left with them at the end.

B-Business

The world is always in need of people who can take products to the world after they have been developed. A product that has been developed but rots away occluded is of no use to anyone. That’s where the world of entrepreneurship comes in. They are the people who make the people believe in a product.
This kind of entrepreneurial talent is especially important for the School of Biotechnology because it is important that you not only develop a product, but convince the world of it’s worth in order to generate the capital to make the conceptualization of your product a reality.
Be it a biomedical gadget or consumable product or health care advancement, bring it to us if you think your idea has scientific rationale with a potential for scale up in the market. We are all ears!

Green Chem E Car

With ‘Going Green’ being the order of the day due to rapid consumption of non-renewable resources, every avenue available to mankind has to be explored on order that we avoid fuel consumption and protect the atmosphere from pollution.
Thus, channel all your fury at the destruction of Mother Earth into designing a car that runs entirely on chemicals and renders minimum harm to the atmosphere. Make your car travel through a specified track (which will have a few obstacles) and make your design adhere to the specs given to emerge the victor in this event. The length of the track will be mentioned after the selection of abstract. In addition to this, it has to hold a payload of 0-300 ml water. The size of the designed cars must not exceed certain specifications and they must operate using 'green' methods, i.e., there can be emissions in the form of a visible liquid or gas, such as exhaust, but they should not pollute the surroundings.

Judging Criteria:

  • Length covered by the car - a
  • Time taken by the car for traveling that length - b
  • Stopping of the car at the end of the track - c
  • Environmental effects - d
  • Availability of the reactants - e
  • TOTAL POINTS = [(a*100) + (b*50) + (c*125) + (d*150) + (e*50)]
  • The participant with greater total points will be declared the winner.

INTERRUPTUR

Gone are the days when we ask you to trip a circuit using electrical means. That is just so run-of-the-mill. Anyone can do that, right? So, we take it up a notch this year. What we want you to do is to design a circuit that will interrupt electricity using chemicals.
Wait for it. It gets better. You not only have to design a circuit, but also design it in such a manner that it trips the electrical circuit after a pre-defined interval. Are you up for the task? Did anything that you have come across in all your years of chemical study prepare you for this? Do you think you can design a ‘Punctual’ chemical circuit? Daksh `15 holds the answers!
Event Description: Each team will be provided with an electrical circuit. The funda of the event is to stop the flow of electricity at the end of 5 minutes exact. So each team has to come up with an apparatus using chemical means to interrupt the flow of electricity at the end of exact 5 minutes. The team which nears the time, wins the event.

Switch Idea

Switch Idea is an effort to make professional opportunities available to students in the easiest manner possible. The company believes that every graduate and post-graduate student should be able to get an internship and thus learn about their chosen field in the most practical manner. Switch Idea is a youth focused company and is committed to solving the problems that most Indian students face when it comes to their career aspirations. The Switch Idea website allows both students and companies to connect with each other on a single platform and thus provide opportunities to all. The company is also working on helping students develop skills that are necessary to bag the right jobs.

Interns Fair

Internships are the primary drivers for a successful career. They help a student get a realistic perspective about the industry and the company that they choose to work in. They thrust students into a practical space where they can learn about actual workplace processes, business understanding, and ultimately gain an edge professionally. Daksh 2015 is proud to host the Intern Fair this year in collaboration with Switch Idea. The aim is to provide valuable internship opportunities to all talented students.

NTAT

The National Talent Acquisition Test (NTAT) is a proprietary examination conducted by Switch Idea. The aim of this test is to identify and select talented and job ready students from Indian colleges and helping them secure the right internships. The NTAT score helps companies and HRs to discover promising candidates and thus select them for career defining internships in the hottest Indian companies. The NTAT is a 90 min. multiple choice test which requires no prior preparation on the part of the student. Questions in the test are designed to check a student's logical understanding, communication skills and problem solving abilities with respect to actual workplace scenarios. In order to successfully clear the test, a student needs to secure a score above 75.
