STUDENT PROJECT FUNDING
student project fund aims to identify and support potential ideas which are
innovative and impactful. BITSAA has previously supported projects such as Inspired
Karters, IFOR and AcYut, which have bagged many awards in various international
platforms. Through student project fund, we want to increase participation of
students in international technical competitions and encourage more
involvements of students in technical activities.
student project funding initiative will identify potentially impactful projects
every semester. BITSAA will raise necessary funds to enable these projects. The
student projects will be shortlisted based on the potential impact and
