About the Fest

IMPETUS is a National Level Technical Fest of IEEE UVCE, started in the year 2001. For seventeen years now, it has been serving as a platform for the students to showcase their skills and share their views. It brings together the brilliant minds, whose direction of thought has been streamlined by extensive knowledge; to compete in an arena marked by fight for creativity, excellence and innovation. Held on an intercollegiate level, this fest sees a footfall of over 1000 students every year. IMPETUS is a technical extravaganza designed for a change and to bring vivid difference.

Every year, this fest goes out with a message for the students. Over the years, various versions of IMPETUS have focused at spreading environmental awareness, promoting women empowerment, assessing effect of IT, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Importance of Research and Development, Smart Era and the previous being Design of Things.

Theme - Automation: The Next Dimension

The humans, quite ostensibly, like any other species in the animal kingdom are inherently indolent, idle and slow. However, unlike other species we can understand, create, invent and innovate. From inventing the wheel, to the driverless cars at the threshold, it has been our constant endeavor to make our life easier and to replace the flesh blood with the hands of steel. It is this endeavor that has provided us the "impetus to ideate and innovate". The main feature of this year's aspect is automation.

The term automation can be defined as the technology by which a process or procedure is performed without any human activities. Automation mainly works on feedback control mechanism. The earliest feedback control was the water clock. Through all these years we have used the technology of automation in several fields, from sails in windmills to automatic telephone switch board. Today extensive automation is practiced in practically every type of manufacturing and assembly process.

With that as our inspiration, we here at University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering invite you all this March to witness IMPETUS 18.0 and to join us in bringing "Automation - The Next Dimension" closer to the world.
