About Pragyan


One of the premier institutions for technical education in the country, National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli has strived to provide students with the best academic syllabi and even better academic exposure since its establishment in 1964.

Pragyan, the international techno-managerial organisation of NIT Trichy which came into being in 2005, achieves just that by providing a platform for a multitude of students to showcase their technical ingenuity and prowess. With its annual self-titled fest, Pragyan has come a long way since its inception. It basks in the limelight with the London Olympics and football club - Manchester United as one of the three organisations to have ever achieved the ISO 20121:2012 Certification for Event Sustainability Management System. Pragyan also holds the coveted honour of being the only student-run organisation amongst the three. Pragyan also has the ISO 9001:2015 Certification for Quality Management System. Moreover, it has been registered as a case study in The Case Centre, London.

Organising 40+ events sorted into over 8 clusters, the fest succinctly captures the zeitgeist of the technical and managerial worlds. With Guest Lectures and Events that host prestigious experts from various fields of science, tech and management, the fest has built up an impressive reputation that precedes it, attracting students from various parts of the country every year to enrich themselves.

Stepping up to its 15th edition in 2019, Pragyan 2019 is all set to encompass every possibility under the sun, with Spectrum as its theme, to celebrate technology that teeters on the edge of a new frontier.
