The Association of Students of Computer Science for Information Interchange (ASCII) is the technical association of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. It was established in the year 1997. It started with 195 members including both student and faculty members in 1997. It is a union of the Undergraduate students (B.Tech - Computer Science and Engineering), Post Graduate students (MCA, M.Tech -Computer Vision and Image processing and M.Tech - Computer Science and Engineering) and faculty members. The activities are executed by students and providesopportunity to all students of CSE to conduct various technical and social events, helping them share and gain knowledge from their peers.
The technical events comprise of several workshops such as Android Programming, Web Development and Designing workshops for preparation towards competitive coding, debugging and the ever popular gaming event. Some of the social events include Induction and Farewell.
Cerebral Wars and Bootstrap are the major celebrated Technical Symposiumsconducted annually.Both of them are a series of contests which test the technical prowess of the students beyond the world of academics. The gaming event is also conducted for all the video game geeks of the campus. Winners are recognized by presenting awards and certificates at the Freshers or Farewell.
Freshers or as we like to call it Login, is conducted by the Junior Year students for the Sophomores as an official induction into the association. It is an informative-cum fun event which is one of the most awaited events every year. The farewell, better known as Reboot is the time of the year when the Junior students bid farewell to the Seniors. The event involves an official Prize distribution ceremony and several informal events. The various Student Awards instituted by the association on this solemn occasion are :
The Alumni continue to contribute to this forum by guiding their juniors on academics, placement and career. This association provides the space to develop their leadership skills, expose and share their technical skills. Overall, the forum provides a tight bond amongst themselves and with the department.
Major Programmes Organized by the Association in the recent past:
Events During Reebot
Everyone meets new people in the place. Ice breakers can be an effective way of starting a training session or a team-building event. As interactive and often fun sessions run before the main proceedings, they help people get to know each other and buy into the purpose of the event.
A team of players is assembled inside a themed room. Their mission is to escape the room by cooperatively discovering clues, solve puzzles and accomplish tasks in a room. The clues are made and placed in such a way that the players are expected to explore their surroundings & think laterally to solve them within a particular time limit.
A theme will be given to every teams. The theme will be a problem statement where the solution should be provided as an idea for a start-up. The team should also prepare for an ad zap where they should market their product. Their product should surprise the judges to get more points.
A team of players is expected to role play as certain real-life characters who are aboard a sinking ship and the task is to debate upon themselves to decide who gets to put on the life jacket to survive. This event brings out the public speaking and debating talents of the players.
Treasure hunt goes all the way back to the times from which its name comes from. As Computer science engineers, we would love to have a completely new version of treasure hunt through technological advancements. We’ll provide the players with a fully functional Augmented Reality based treasure hunt, where the clues will be engraved as 3D images which will be revealed on scanning over the targets. The players are expected to solve the clues and scan the targets to reveal the upcoming clues and finally find the treasure.
The teams are given a list of items to be collected in a particular period of time. Their goal is to collect as many items as possible within the given timeframe. This event will profoundly bring out the interaction between the members of the team.
After lunch everyone assembled at pandhal. Initially we had lighting of lamp by P N Kumar sir, Jeyakumar sir, Venkatraman sir, Bagyammal ma’am and Nithesh K. Later then P N Kumar sir unveiled the banner and gave some good words to the students. Following him Venkatraman sir spoke to the students. Then we started with open stage event.
Open stage for teams
Here for each team time limit will be given. They can do any performance that can be done by them. The main focus will be on getting more no. of students on stage to do something.
We had Motta maadi music, three Dance performance done by 3rd years and Academy awards in between open stage for teams. And finally, at the end of the event, team 2 scored the most no. of points and they were being awarded with the trophy. Then the day came to an end with vote of thanks by Nithesh K.
