" Innovation has always been humankind’s distinctive characteristic. The old idiom of Adversity being the Mother of Invention rings true clearer during these trying times. "
The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has upended the lives of many people all across the world. We as an institution are doing our bit to spread positivity and nurture innovation during these trying times.
The National Institute of Engineering has set up the NIE Innovation Competition to nurture ideas that can help us through the challenge of the Novel Coronavirus. These feasible, low cost, high impact solutions for everyday problems will be supported and rewarded. It is imperative that we as engineers lead the way in creating real world solutions. Short term projects and ideas are invited from students of NIE and NIEIT. The ideas may be designed for the current COVID-19 and the post COVID-19 situations. Concepts that can help in enforcing and encouraging social distancing, personal hygiene, social and moral responsibility which may be adapted post the national and state lockdown should be considered.
Greetings from NIE! It’s the time of Lockdown, and many might agree, boredom is at its peak. But is there a silver lining to all of it? Yes, there certainly is. A great chance to stimulate and embody creativity to its fullest. A great role in the fight against Covid-19 is spreading the right awareness. This is your chance to be a part of the fight.
