BITS Pilani welcomes projects in various fields of Science and Engineering for APOGEE 2010. With over 250 projects coming from all parts of the country in last year’s competition, it is sure to provide you unparalleled an academic experience.
The project presentation competition at BITS Pilani features projects from a variety of scientific research areas.With categories dedicated to both evergreen fields like infrastructure and also new frontiers of technology as simulations, we assure you a platform beyond compare.
A project is defined as an activity with an aim to formulating a problem and presenting a solution to it using existing/emerging/novel concepts and/or technologies.
The projects may be submitted under any of the following categories :
- Communication & Network Systems :
The projects dealing with the collection/ transmission/ collation/ dissemination etc of information. New applications on existing networks and/or new network system designs are solicited.
- Automation :
Automation is the use of control systems to control process and/or machinery replacing human operators. Projects competing under this category should aim at reducing the need for human sensory, physical and/or mental requirements and minimizing error.
- Software Design (Application development) :
This category will deal with the back end and logic based applications. The main focus will be on the innovation, utility, logic, etc. of such projects. Minimum emphasis will be laid on the user interface focusing more on the novelty of the idea and how potential it is to bring about a change/revolution in the related field.
- Software Design (Adaptive Technology) :
In the age when Artificial Intelligence has revolutionized the world, this category will search to reward projects which display ingenuity in the fields of Neural Networks, Swarm Intelligence and other Intelligent Systems. These 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. The user interfaces will also play a role in the evaluation.
- Design – Appliances :
The projects aimed 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.
- Health & Nutrition :
Projects aimed 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.
- 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.
- Industrial Processes and Applications :
Projects finding their use in the various processes and applications in industry. Innovative ideas for existing processes and new, economical process applications will be appreciated.
- Infrastructure :
Projects having their 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.
- Signal Processing :
This category would include projects involving the analysis, interpretation and manipulation of signals. Signals of interest would include sounds, images etc. 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.
- Material Sciences :
Projects involving 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.
- Simulation & Mathematical Models :
Projects using mathematical models or simulations to explain the behavior of physical/financial/social and/or other systems are also included.
- Transportation :
The projects under this category should work towards facilitating movement/transfer of men and/or material and/or information. They can be related to designing of an urban transportation planning model, i.e., traffic management system etc.
- Pure sciences :
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.
- Energy and Environment :
As the name suggests,this category calls for projects which deal with applying or devising new ,environmental friendly methods or processes as well as ones which help in conservation of energy.
