Since its inception in 2005, Pragyan, NIT Trichy’s annual international techno-managerial festival, has provided a platform to foster innovative thinking and technical acumen among the bright and developing minds of India. In its short yet impactful run, Pragyan has enjoyed footfall from over 100 colleges spanning the length and breadth of India and has worked to establish itself as a model destination for creation, invention, and innovation.
Prayan is one of the biggest and most anticipated technical festivals in the country, and its doors are open to students of a plethora of different colleges to showcase their technical prowess. Pragyan is also a proud recipient of the ISO 20121:2012 certification for Sustainable Event Management, along with the Manchester United FC and the London Olympics, and the only student-run organisation at that. It also holds the ISO 9001:2015 certification for Quality Management Systems and has been registered as a case study in the Case Study Center, London.

Pragyan has come a long way and has evolved into an organisation that provides a platform for technical inquisitiveness; it also strives toward the upliftment of society through its impactful social initiatives.
The Social Responsibility wing of Pragyan constantly undertakes a lot of initiatives both inside and outside the campus. A Campus Development Week was observed, which provided a free workshop and various awareness programs to boost the morale of students. “Bag of Delight”, a social responsibility venture aimed at helping improve students’ learning atmospheres, in collaboration with Viscountess Goshen Govt Girls High School, Thuvakudi Panchayat Union Primary School, and Govt Schools of Trichy, has helped improve the quality of education for hundreds of students.
To commemorate the 20th edition of Pragyan, the second edition of its annual educational outreach event, Techids 2.0, was conducted on the 4th of November. This event gave school students a glimpse of the world of technology. More than 300 young minds had access to not only technological workshops conducted by the technical clubs but also a career guidance session by IgNITTe, the teaching club of NIT Trichy.
