Techniche (The annual Techno-Management festival of IIT Guwahati) now in its 20th edition has taken up the initiative of organising TechExpo, with the cardinal aim of bringing to light the technological advancements made by the youth of this country and provide an opportunity to showcase their innovations on a larger platform. The prime motive is to inspire the young minds in India to engage in creating new ideas and to promote the idea of innovation very much on the lines of Make In India and Startup India.

Testimonials

  • DEVRISHI BHARADWAJ

    TechExpo was amazing with great projects from different parts of the country. It was better than other science exhibitions as it was open to all categories of science projects. The interaction with people from diverse fields ranging from academia, research and development to industries made it unique. I would like to convey my gratitude to the organizers of TechExpo 2017, especially to the Convener of Techniche 2017, Animesh Jain. I will never forget the help they rendered for my exclusive meeting with Bharat Salhotra, MD of Alstom India.

  • BHARAT INNOVATES UNIVERSALS

    TechExpo was true to its words about the grand exposure. We could interact with IIT professors, CEOs and a large number of the common public which greatly helped us. Securing the 19th position motivated us to take our concept to the market. We are fortunate to get the guidance of Prof. Pradeep Yammiyavar, HoD of Design IITG. TechExpo will be turning point in the creation of BIU.
