What is Ingenium ?

Ingenium is the flagship engineering competition conducted by QuEST Global. It's an endeavour to provide platform for the budding innovators / engineers of different streams of engineering. The projects accepted in Ingenium are of the eight primary domains, such as Mechanical, Aerospace, Industrial, Embedded, Mechatronics, Power Generation, Healthcare and Automobile. The selected top projects of earlier years have also won several accolades in NASSCOM and other national and International platforms.

Starting from 2011, the number of registrations for Ingenium is increasing in multi-fold every year. In FY 15-16, we have received more than 5792 registrations from 25 states and 3 union territories 760+ colleges. This indicates that Ingenium has become one of the primary national forums for the engineering student fraternity to showcase their talent. QuEST believes that through this initiative, we can not only build passion for innovation amongst the student community across academic institutions in India, but also use this as a platform to attract top talent from all level of colleges to QuEST.

The students from the shortlisted top 10 colleges / institutions, along with their Guides will be sponsored to visit QuEST and present their project in the Gala Final Event to the panel of judges drawn from Academic institutions and Industries. We are also proud to inform that last 5 years; Ingenium was honoured by eminent personalities from various industries.
