Event Description(15th march): As a part of the GTU Zonal Tech-Fest 2018, GTU Innovation Council is carrying out Industrial Defined Project (IDP) Expo to showcase the best innovations across GTU. The main objective of IDP Expo is to provide space for showing Innovative idea /solution which students have developed while solving real life challenge of an industry/SME or similar end user. During this expo academic & industry experts will evaluate each team and share feedbacks on how to take these innovations ahead to end user.
Students need to come up with innovative solutions for the benefits of society and industry to showcase in front of faculty, mentors, industrial experts, GTU assistant professors.
The real life solution being presented can be taken from final year project as per GTU curriculum or any hobby project. The team can demonstrate the Proof of Concept physically during the expo or can make a detailed poster presentation.
Each zone is dedicated with a college where the IDP Expo will be carried out. This expo should be open to all the students and the faculty of the college and all the neighboring industries.
Student need to present their innovative solution for industries in the form of posters.
Preparation of Posters:
1. Prepare the poster on material that is lightweight. The material can be on one sheet so that it can be rolled up for easy transport or on separate panels for individual mounting.
2. Posters should be readable from a distance of 6 feet (2 meters). For adequate visibility, capital letters should be at least 3/8 inch (1 cm) high after enlargement to full poster size.
