nirmitee paper presentation



This year at NIRMITEE 2021, MIT-WPU Pune, we are proud to present the event ‘Paper Presentation’ which would encourage the students to come up with new exciting technical ideas and concepts. Paper Presentation is an event wherein the participants are expected to present their ideas with the help of some analytical / experimental research work. The outcomes of the research may be supported using data acquired from various sources or suitable investigation and analysis. The paper presented must put forward a clear picture of the thought behind the concept used. Effective use of charts, graphs, tables, images etc. should be done in the presentation for better interaction with the judges and the audience. The content should venture beyond B. E. / B. Tech curriculum. All the participants will receive a certificate of participation.


Eligibility Criteria:

  • Diploma students, undergraduate & postgraduate students, research scholars and working professionals are encouraged to participate.
  •  Authors from different two institutions can collaborate to submit a paper.


Note: Special prizes for diploma students.


Event format:

The event would be conducted as given below:

      Stage 1: Submission of paper (DEADLINE: 24th April 2021)

      Stage 2: Submission of pre-recorded video presentation (DEADLINE: 24th April 2021)

  •     Stage 3: Actual event & Questions and Answer session



‘Smart Materials, Energy and Recent Trends in Construction’

Building activities are as old as humans themselves. Right from the stone-age to today’s skyscrapers, the construction industry has come a long way in terms of innovation. Over the time, humans have refined their construction practices and started incorporating new technologies in their methods which are more adaptive to our day to day life and thereby provide us with more comfort.  New technologies and materials are being invented and put to use every day in an effort to maintain a sustainable environment and to conserve our resources. Evolution of the construction industry in itself is a very refined and intricate process which has led to the development of nations. Energy and energy conservation plays a vital role in the development of the nation, and when paired with engineering advancements reaps better results.
