Electronics and Robotics Club

Current scenario: Majority of the club activities are focused on freshmen. Main issue with senior participation is that they have not been able to relate themselves with the sessions that are planned keeping them in mind.

  • Improve the participation of PGs in the club activities
  • Increase involvement of seniors through informal meets and try to get product level outputs

Krittika

Every one of us is amazed by the spectacle of the night sky and feels curious about its mysteries that lay hidden in plain sight. But very few follow it up as they grow up. At Krittika, we provide you an opportunity to do just that. Krittika is IIT Bombay’s focal point for amateur astronomers and casual stargazers alike. This year I want to focus my efforts on increasing the outreach of the club.

Maths and Physics Club

Our events vary from casual events such as movie screenings, demonstrations of physical phenomenon and quizzes to formal events such as lectures and Olympiad level paper solving. We have always motivated students to explore Physics and Maths, we also fund students for making their own demonstrations and experiments. Our flagship event, Bazinga, is a quiz that relies solely on your concepts rather than the dry and conventional algorithmic procedure of solving questions with pre-defined methods.

Web and Coding Club

While students in IIT Bombay learn programming in their first year, they usually drop it after that. One of our goals is to help these people carry on with programming and retain it as the useful skill it is. For the people who already program, we wish to maintain a community of programmers from all spheres and help people reach greater heights. We also have a focus on improving IITB's student participation in open source, thus increasing the institute's footprint and instilling a sense of giving back to the community.

Energy Club

Energy is everywhere, we may not think much about it, how we generate it or use it, or the implications of the existence of energy on demand. The Energy club of IIT Bombay aims to make people aware of the importance of Renewable energy in the 21st century, and its inescapable link to climate change, and the effects this has on all of us. We aim to take people on a journey towards understanding the use and consequences of several technologies in the energy sector, and how the sector functions and how it is fundamentally linked to our lives.
