Academic Society of Electronics & Telecommunication Engg

This Academic Society is the Electronics Engineering students of the IIEST, Shibpur. Team EDC feels proud to be a part of this esteemed institution which has secured 19th position among the engineering institutes and 36th overall position in the NIRF Rankings 2019. This year has been the beginning of many new things in our department. But guess what, this streak isn't over yet! This time it's the inception of the very first edition of our Annual Departmental Magazine - "SPANDAN". VAIDYUTAK is a tech fest which we organize.
A logo is used to symbolize an entity for example an event,organisation, community or even an initiative. It is a golden opportunity for all the inquisitive minds to participate, interact and get inspired by the top individuals of various prestigious organizations of the country, participating in Industrial meet and panel discussions. So what better than a transistor, to symbolize the sole technical fest presented by the Academic society of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering. A transistor is primarily used for amplification and so was the aim for organising Vaidyutak, to present an amplified version of the department's existence inside the college campus along with its interaction with the industry.
