Techfest is IIT Bombay’s Annual International Science and Technology Festival, the biggest of its kind in Asia. Apart with providing platform for students to listen to some of the most eminent personalities around the world and showcasing some of the most awe-inspiring exhibition, Techfest is well known for its technical challenges and competitions.This year our major competions are as follows

Full Throttle:Grand Prix. It demands the participants to build a wireless remote controlled machine, powered ONLY by an IC Engine that can complete a Cemented/Concrete Track in least possible time . Building remote controlled cars, without the use of any readymade mechanism is a task only true engineers can complete. It promises to be a challenge for ace builders as well as drivers, with a cool $1250 reward to take away.

Micromouse: It demands the participants to build an autonomous self
contained machine designed to get to the centre of a maze in shortest
possible time. A Micromouse essentially comprises of a drive motor or
motors to move it; a steering and turning method; sensors to detect the
presence or absence of maze walls; sensors or control logic to oversee
the action of the rest and keep the vehicle 'on track' or to solve the
maze; batteries to provide power .It comes with a prize money of $1000.

Pixel:Build a computer controlled navigator that, with the help of an
overhead/on-board camera and a computer, moves 6 balls of three different specified colours into similar three distinct coloured holes.This one comes with a $1000 prize money too.
