About the Academic Meet

Date of submission of paper and model proposal has been extended upto 14 / 04 / 2024

After an overwhelming response from the students of Engineering Colleges all over the country in the Academic Meets of 2010 to 2023, Forum of Scientists, Engineers & Technologists (FOSET), a national level voluntary organization of professionals feels proud once again to organize the 14th Inter University Engineering, Science & Technology Academic Meet – 2024 & Innovative Model Competition for a Sustainable Society on 11-12 May, 2024 in association with Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology – West Bengal, JIS Group, Indian Society for Technical Education – West Bengal Section, Association of Engineers India and JIS College of Engineering.

West Bengal produces some of the finest talents in the field of Engineering, Technology and Science through its systematic and well-organized network of Engineering  & Science Colleges and Universities. The Academic Meet is recognized as an effective platform for exploration and brainstorming by UG and PG students, who have the positive inclination in translating their scientific knowledge into technology for the people. The event includes paper presentations before eminent experts in different fields. UG students & PG students’ avenues are opened up for presenting skill of craftsmanship. Also, by the process of paper submission, the students will gain experience in preparing papers  in proper format and free of plagiarism. some selected paper will be published in  the reputed Journal. The two best papers from each stream will be awarded as a token of recognition. The 14th Inter University Engineering, Science & Technology Academic Meet – 2024 will therefore look forward to organizational expansion among the budding Scientists and Engineers participating in the Meet. B.Tech, Diploma and ITI students explore their innovative idea through their model presentation for the sustainable development of the society.
