Speaking about the event, Biju K Balan, HOD of BCA department said, “A complete two-day IT fest witnessed a lot more enthusiastic participation across the colleges of Karnataka.” Compared to the previous year, the turn out this year is more and we expect much more in the coming year.
He added, “It’s a significant development which creates more awareness especially on the ‘techmind FIESTA,’ as well as other IT Competitions among the students.”
