APOGEE exhibits over 550 projects in various fields of science and engineering. Based on practical application, they showcase unparalleled excellence.
Automation is the use of control systems to control process and/or machinery replacing human operators. Projects competing under this category aim at reducing the need for human sensory, physical and/or mental requirements and minimizing error.
Communication and Network Systems
The projects deal with the collection/ transmission/ collation/ dissemination etc of information. New applications on existing networks and/or new network system designs are solicited.
The projects aim at conceptualization and/or development of a new or improved appliance, having their application in any of the varied spheres of human activity. An appliance is a device composed of hardware components dedicated to a specific function.
Economic Modelling and Finance
This category would deal with the understanding of an enterprise business and improving its performance through creation of economic models (enterprise models). This will include modelling of the relevant business domain (relatively stable) and business processes (relatively volatile). Projects related to the current or probable future economic scenario or aimed at improving the same and projects that aim to provide reasons and solutions to imminent financial issues would also be included.
Health and Nutrition
The projects aim at maintaining, restoring and improving human health through study, diagnosis, treatment and possible prevention of disease and injury as well as studying the metabolic and physiological responses of body to diet, metabolic pathways etc.
Energy and Environment
As the name suggests, this category calls for projects which deal with applying or devising new environmental-friendly methods/processes as well as ones which help in conservation of energy.
The projects have application/concepts in the network of factors which enables a country's economy/local infrastructure or an industrial operation to function effectively. This includes such matters as transport, power, finances, housing, and education.
Industrial Processes and Applications
The projects related to the various processes and applications in industry. Innovative ideas for existing processes and new, economical process applications will be appreciated.
The projects involve the use/modification of properties of matter and its applications to various areas of engineering and sciences. Also solicited are projects dealing with development of new materials for specific/general use in society.
This category would call for projects which involve basic principles of the three branches of science namely Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Projects involving applications of more than one branch will be preferred.
Software Design (Application Development)
A chance to prove one’s intellect, creativity & expertise at software development, this category gives one complete freedom to decide the objective and genre of the software and the platform to be used to develop it. The main focus is on innovation, utility, implementation and other relevant parameters of such projects. Novelty of the idea and potential to bring about a revolution in the concerned field will be given due credit.
Software Design (Adaptive Technology)
A category exclusively concerned with the design and development of applications that allow computers to evolve some sort of intelligence of their own. This category includes projects which display ingenuity in the fields of Artificial Intellgence, Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Swarm/Business/Social/Computational Intelligence, and Computer Vision, among others. Projects will be evaluated both on the basis of how sensitive the systems are to the outside stimulus and the self-learning and decision making capability of the system.
This category includes projects involving the analysis, interpretation and manipulation of signals. Signals of interest would include sounds, images etc. Also included are projects with applications capable of converting signals from one form to another and/or effective presentation of the same for efficient utilization of information contained in them.
Simulation and Mathematical Modelling
Any real world phenomenon, be it in financial infrastructure, computer algorithm or mechanical design has a mathematical formulation as its basis. Projects in this category model the same.
This category includes projects related to various modes of transport as in air, water and road. The project should basically be designed to provide a rapid, safe and economically compatible movement of people and goods. Various projects related to road network, railways etc. can be included.
