Government of West Bengal
ESTD - 1919
ENGINERDS was first organized in the year 2010, and from the very inception it received fantastic response from both engineering and honors colleges across West Bengal. Participants were not only pleased with the organization but were also amazed with the high prize money-low entry fee combination.
The two day event is designed to be geeky, and at the same time to be fun. With the idea of making technology fun and with the tag line “get your nerds on..”, ENGINERDS has started rolling, while providing students a chance to bring out their competitive side amongst their daily routine. And within a very short span of time it has left a mark in the calendar of tech fests that every fest going student lives by.
Apart from the unique idea behind ENGINERDS, other factors aiding the success of the event include the location of the college. Situated in a prime location, GCELT campus is easily accessible from almost anywhere in the city. Salt Lake is at the heart of the technical world in Bengal, Sector 3 LB Block is just off the Eastern Metropolitan Bypass. The college is equally accessible from any part of the city, be it Sealdah, Science city, Park Circus or the airport.
Hence the crowd and footfall have been very healthy for such a comparatively new event. The Institution is situated amidst other colleges and institutes, namely NUJS, NIFT, and JU (Engineering division). Not only is the region popular with the students but also provides unique mixture of minds from very different institutes.
ENGINERDS is a unique opportunity of the college and the students to show case itself and its capabilities. It is a chance to let others know about ourselves and have them know we are not behind anyone in any aspect. After a brief period of dormancy, GCELT is yet again ready to perform at a level that others aspire to be at.
