Nirma Institute Of Technology Wins Robocon India 2008!

Yep. Nirma Institute Of Technology, Ahmedabad has won Robocon India 2008 after beating MIT, Pune in the finals!

The semi-finalists were:

  • Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi.
  • Nirma Institute Of Technology, Ahmedabad.
  • Maharashtra Institute Of Technology, Pune.
  • Vishwakarma Institute of Technology, Pune.

And the finalists were:

  • Nirma Institute Of Technology, Ahmedabad.
  • Maharashtra Institute Of Technology, Pune.

And the winner was: Nirma Institute Of Technology, Ahmedabad.

Kudos! It was a great performance by NIT, Ahmedabad. The final score was 27-21 in favour of NIT! Now, as the International Robocon is being held in Pune, India on 31st August 2008 and as two teams from the host nation are allowed in it, India will be represented by both NIT, Ahmedabad and MIT, Pune in that competition. Yipee! Let’s wish them the very best of luck!

It would have been better if MIT, Pune had won though. You know, just that satisfaction of a Puneri team having won would have been there. Heck, let’s hope for better luck next time.

  1. All I see there are Nits Wits :p

    Beating IIT D is quite an achievement, I’d say.

    You an engi too, Krishna?

  2. Yep, IIT D was beaten by MIT, Pune in the semis. The IITians are routinely beaten by other teams in such competitions. They are just normal guys. It is we who make such a fuss about them.

    Yes, I am an engi too. Currently studying Third Year Mechanical Engineering in Pune.

  3. What happened to IIT Powai this time ?

  4. IIT Powai participated in the competition but did not reach even the quarter finals. Out of all the IITs , only IIT Delhi reached the knockout stages.

  5. iit b blew its motor driving circuits, so they withdrew. they were using mosfets to drive their circuits, without heat sinks if i remember correctly :( but great bots anyways
