VAIDYUTAK - Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering

Vaidyutak 2019 is the very #first Annual Technical Fest of the Department of Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering of IIEST Shibpur. With a plethora of events ranging from Circuit Designing, Technical Paper presentation to Quiz, Industrial Meet, Alumni Meet and so on, it promises to act as the platform for all the Novus Tech enthusiasts of the country to showcase their technical abilities, inquisitiveness and their search for supremacy in this field.
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. It's said that the sturdiness of an organization depends on how strong its roots are and so after 53 years of existence it becomes very important for us to not forget our source of origination. The inclusion of 'Vaidyutak', the sanskrit version of electronics and the 'Clock Tower' in the logo which holds the utmost importance justifies the strongest roots behind the department's existence.
