HACKATHRON

Hackathon  or Ideathon is a workshops organized by Ghousia College of Engineering, Ramanagaram in association with KBITS, Govt of Karnataka. The Workshop is intended towards ideas generation, conversion of ideas into project proposals and conversion of project proposals into products.

 

Objective of Hackathon is to give an experience on the following to the participants:

 

Shoot up out of the problem: The solution you are building could actually be solving a bigger problem. The Solution might actually be looking at a completely different form of problem too. The solution might be replicable in any other industry. Let’s explore the possibilities. Relate the Technological problem with real world troubles that people are facing and how would your solution play an important role.

§ Shoot up in to the problem: A problem might have been composed of multiple smaller problems. Looking at each such smaller problem helps you set a context on what form of solution would be the best and are we eventually achieving what we set out to achieve in the first place?

§ Identification and validation of System Problems Needs

§ Invent & Implement Solutions
