Aakaar is the annual technical festival of the Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Bombay. The festival brings together hundreds of students, professors, industry professionals and other Civil engineering enthusiasts. The festival includes a vast range of competitions, a National Students’ Symposium, guest lectures, exhibitions, panel discussions and workshops.

Aakaar has its 4th edition coming up in the first week of March 2012.

This year we plan to Go Green with Aakaar 2012. We will be focusing on sustainability and eco-friendly initiatives through various events and competitions to be held at Aakaar 2012.

Aakaar has kickstarted yet another thrilling edition with an innovative card-stacking competition. Aakaar 2012 presents ‘Palacio de Cartas‘ –  an opportunity to indulge again in the enjoyable infantile task of building megastructures using playing cards. Cash prizes and attractive computer accessories up for grabs.


Aakaar presents the National Civil Engineering Students’ Symposium (NCESS). Since the inception of Aakaar, the Symposium has grown bigger and has received wide acclaim from all over the country. This has encouraged us to perfect it as a genuine national level platform for you young researchers. NCESS is a pedestal for young engineers to put forth their budding ideas, be heard on a grand platform and be assessed by popular industry professionals and adept professors. Compete with the best civil engineers across the country and prove your worth. That’s not all! If your idea stands this fire-test, it may even make it to the elite few to be published.

A diverse range of competitions to assess your competence as a civil engineer and gauge your logical skills. We give you just the right stimulus to outsmart your rivals. Be it intelligent structure designing, optimizing transport networks or insane quizzing contests – we have had it all and much more. This is your chance to make it large on the big stage!
