What is Esya?
Esya, the annual technical fest of IIIT-Delhi, provides a platform for students to showcase their talents and knowledge in various fields of Computer Science, Electronics and Communication, and various non-technical fields. They aim to cross boundaries of the imaginable and let everyone discover a world unknown to them, be it about technology, or more.
Going back to the last year, Esya went nationwide for the first time. With over 10,000 participants from over 800 colleges and schools, pan India, Esya has been successfully recognised nation-wide. Last year saw epic proportions of awesome, fully loaded in events from all arenas.
Amongst the CSE events, ProCon Jr and Bug-Finding events were a major hit, while the Electronics sections pulled up the crowds for CircuitRix Jr, RoboWars and Hack-IIITD, the one day long Hackathon.
Even the non-tech events saw a great response from participants, both in number and in quality participation. Rebuttal was a two-day long grand debate with tensions running high as the stage became hotter with every succeeding round. FOQs, the photography event, had submissions which could define the word “Aesthetic”. Faking the Research, Hunt IT-the Treasure Hunt, ChakraVyuha- an online cryptic hunt,Minimal Design, were some of the other crowd pulling Non-Tech Events.
