Tathva is the annual techno-management fest of National Institute of Technology, Calicut. Workshops featuring a multitude of topics on technical advancements and scientific exploration will be held on 3 days of fest.
A group of tech-savvy students started a fiesta at the beginning of a new century and called it Tathva, which translates to "Principle". When it first appeared in 2000, it provided young people with a vast stage to demonstrate their technical ingenuity and learn cutting-edge information.
With more than two decades of growth, this festival became South India's largest techno-management fest, garnering nationwide attention. Tathva's motto is to combine technology, innovation, and fun to create an experience unlike any other. It hosts many events, ranging from insightful workshops, enlightening lectures, exhibitions, and competitions lined up and judged by experts to pro nights - a musical extravaganza, crowd-pulling games, and much more to make the fest even more fun.
Every year the fest kick-starts with pre-Tathva events that include Samasya, a unique quizzing session where young quizzers can test their mettle against each other, conducted by Enquire Quiz club. With prelims conducted across different venues in the state and huge participation every year, it is Kerala's biggest quizzing event. Being one of the most enthralling events of Tathva, Samasya is a proven crowd-puller.
One of the main reasons large crowds lure in during Tathva is the impeccably organized Workshops and Lectures. Tathva was a host to talks by thinkers and visionaries, including Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, Jimmy Wales, and Dr G Madhavan Nair, to name a few. The workshops cover topics like VR, the Internet of Things, Ethical Hacking, Swarm Robotics, and other relevant subjects that provide a hands-on experience that otherwise would have been unavailable. Tathva also conducts exhibitions that are a platform to exhibit the essence of each club and various branches at NIT Calicut and personify the year-round work and enthusiasm of young minds. The previous years also witnessed displays from elite establishments like ISRO and DRDO.
The events of Tathva have always been a platform to shine and showcase students' tech skills for the rest of the world to watch and admire and gain more experience along the way. In the past years, Tathva has presented various thrilling events based on cutting-edge technologies in robotics and AI. Regardless of the pandemic, Tathva'21 events were conducted with enthusiasm online, pushing us to explore more possibilities and adding yet another feather to Tathva's glowing reputation. An exciting event organized by Tathva, 'Wheels', is a venture that started in 2008 as an enthralling exhibition of exotic cars and bikes combined with a quest to educate the general masses about the basic know-how of an automobile. Moreover, with exciting presentations, galleries, and video displays, Wheels never fails to attract large crowds. Adding to the extravagance of Tathva, Adizya- the annual architectural festival is conducted by the architecture students of NIT Calicut simultaneously, making sure to combine more architectural and artistically inclined ideas and spread creativity to the audience participating.
Over the years, Tathva has allured the masses with its plethora of events, workshops, competitions, and pro-nights, living up to the legacy of its name with a great 300,000+ hits, a great footfall of over 35,000 people, and public relations with over 1,200 colleges nationwide.Visit Official Website
