Vadodara: Footprints — one of the largest national-level technical events organised by budding engineers of M S University’s Faculty of Technology and Engineering — will be conducted on an online platform this year.

The event has been segregated into various segments like ‘technotron’, ‘quest’, ‘kaleidoscope’, ‘stock exchange’, ‘virtuosity’, ‘social responsibility’, ‘school events’, ‘entertainment zone’ and many more.
Technotron — the technical segment — consists of technical events pertaining to different engineering departments. It includes events like robo war, robocar race for electrical and electronics engineering department, IC engine based car race for mechanical and metallurgical and material science engineering department, Java language-based event and python programming based event for computer engineering department among others.
As the event will be held virtually, more events such as ‘mic-kron’, a software and hardware-based event related to embedded system design involving the microcontroller selection have been added.
