Every year, a day is marked to celebrate the hard work and successes of a large section of people who have demonstrated their academic prowess, as well as excellence in other fields over the entire academic year. This day is celebrated with medals and certificates being awarded to all meritorious students from all the departments across all programmes, ranging from undergraduate through post graduate to research programmes. Apart from being a day where students receive accolades, it is also a day to recognize the achievements of the faculty, i.e., the National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli (NIT-T) as a whole.
On such an auspicious day where achievements of over a hundred people are celebrated, both directly and indirectly, the occasion would be incomplete without the students across all the years witnessing the same. Those who receive the awards are a living proof that excellence can be achieved across all fields, and NIT Tiruchirappalli verily hosts people who are diverse in talents and skills. Joie de vivre is seeing a huge gathering of peers and friends supporting and encouraging the achievements on this momentous day.
