Looking Beyond Syllabus

Looking Beyond Syllabus (LBS): 2020-21

Looking Beyond Syllabus (LBS): 2019-20


Looking Beyond Syllabus (LBS) was started with the simple objective of encouraging students to work upon and exhibit various innovative theme-based projects on emerging technologies. Participants also get to interact with students of various branches and engage in intellectual conversations with the Faculty members, who act as mentors and enhance team-building ability while developing a competitive environment.

LBS championship 2018-19 was a big hit amongst the students. The competition is open for second year and third year students who are interested in exploring and understanding technology. 

Innovative minds come up with interesting project proposals based on the proposed theme. These projects can be developed either for the benefit of society or for an individual. This year's competition, in collaboration with Institutions Innovation Cell (IIC), started by sending an email on 30th January 2020 to the eligible students and inviting them for a session to brief about the competition. Online registration for the project proposal was open for students from 3rd February 2020 to 8th February 2020. The online mentor registration form was also open on the same dates where interested faculty could apply for the projects according to their area of interest. Twenty-four faculty from various departments registered for LBS and their allocation to the selected teams was done on 27th February 2020. The first round, that is the first review presentation of the project, was held on 11th March 2020 in Lab 402 from 12:30 pm onwards. The final round was scheduled for 20th March 2020 but could not be conducted due to a nationwide lockdown in the country from 17th March 2020. As the old saying goes, “Where there is a will, there is a way”, it was decided that the projects would be showcased as an e-exhibition on the 15th and 16th of July 2020. This decision was met with great responses from faculty and students alike.
