Dr. Sriram Devanathan, Principal of Amrita School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Bengaluru expressed “A common lament of current times is the industry-academic gap. Hackathons have proven to be an effective way of bridging this gap, while at the same time offering excitement, learning, and upskilling all at the same time. This has also become a great way for the industry to identify talent directly and closely suited to their needs. I am sure that the current hackathon event will prove to be of immense value simultaneously to our students, to Amrita School of Engineering, Bengaluru, and to IIC.”
