NEW DELHI: Six out of 30 participating teams were declared winners in a week-long hackathon held at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay as part of the Make in India Week.  These winning teams collaborated to solve problems across three categories of energy, water and transportation. The participants included coders, engineers and designers. Their ideas were evaluated by venture capitalists and government representatives, according to a release.  “India cannot be a great manufacturing nation till we don’t invent and innovate and design in India and our belief is that we had lost our close relationship between academia and industry. Our IIT and engineering institutes will play an important role to take it forward,” said Amitabh Kant, secretary, department of industrial promotion and policy ( DIPP), while announcing the names of the winners.

In the energy category, IIT Kanpur held the top spot while, Vellore Institute of Technology, Chennai campus and Karpagam College of Engineering, Coimbatore shared the honours for the second spot.

In the water category, Vivekanand College of Engineering, Mumbai won the first spot while National Law University, Assam and Jodhpur Institute of Engineering and Technology shared the second position.

In the transportation segment, Krishna Institute of Engineering and Technology, Ghaziabad came first followed by Centre for Environmental Planning & Technology, Ahmedabad.- Courtesy
