We, the students of National Institute of Technology Karnataka (NITK), Surathkal are pleased to inform you that we are organizing our annual technical symposium ENGINEER 2009 from the 12th 15th of February, 2009. ENGINEER is a tribute to the spirit of an engineer, of innovation and enquiry and a sincere attempt on our part to fuel the fire of innovation residing within each one of us. ENGINEER has built a reputation of drawing some of the best technical talent from all over India and also international talent especially for our online events. ENGINEER is spread over four action filled days of technical contests, inspiring lectures, insightful and informative seminars and many more exciting activities. It draws voluminous participation from not only students, but also subject experts, corporate and eminent personalities from India and abroad. Every edition of ENGINEER has outdone its predecessors in standards and magnitude and this year will be no exception.

AUTOMATA @ ENGINEER 2009 involves designing a robot which will traverse through stations (essentially a line-follower) and be able to determine their station codes. In the finals your robot is to map these stations and then traverse them in ascending order of station code. For more details regarding the event please visit http://engineer.org.in/2009/i_automata (Prelims - Automata) and http://engineer.org.in/2009/automata (Finals Problem Statement).

This year, we have started this initiative Impetus. In this, we plan to cover three major robotics crazy cities in India Bangalore, Pune and Hyderabad. General details regarding Impetus can be found at http://engineer.org.in/2009/impetus The prelims for Automata and another robotics event Perfect Machine will be held at these three places. Nevertheless, we shall also hold prelims at NITK for those who did not manage to participate at these cities.
