Smart India Hackathon 2020 is a nationwide initiative to provide students a platform to solve some of the pressing problems we face in our daily lives, and thus inculcate a culture of product innovation and a mindset of problem solving. In SIH 2020, the students would have the opportunity to work on challenges faced within various Ministries, Departments, Industries, PSUs and NGOs to create world class solutions for some of the top organizations including industries in the world, thus helping the Private sector hire the best minds from across the nation.

As a part of the event, each college participating was required to conduct an internal hackathon round in the college and shortlist 5 teams for the software Problem statements, 2 teams for the hardware Problem statements and 2 teams as waitlist teams in both domains.
