This coming CommTECH Highlight will be organized in a form of Project based Learning (PbL), in which participants will be team up & given a real problem related to the topic to be solved. More engagement among participants, facilitators, and community is truly encouraged. This year program would be more attractive because at the end of the program, all participants will have an opportunity to present their project and ideas developed during the program in front of wider audience in the CommTECH Ideas.

CommTECH Ideas is an international student conference which invites students and young researchers from all around the world to share knowledge and ideas to solve real problems in society with multidisciplinary approach. Check this link and feel the thrill.
