Major Events in LOCUS
For the first time in Nepal!!
ROBOLOCUS 2019 will be fully dedicated in sharpening the skills of students and everyone involved from its participating institutions. It is our strong belief that this competition will be a good platform to expand as well as uplift the Robotics Community from the basic level.
Energy Hackathon will be back to Locus 2019 providing a complete platform for solving energy related challenges with a prime motto enabling Energy Access, Reducing Energy Waste and Improving Energy Efficiency and aims to solve the energy problems of Nepal through collaborative efforts of students and amateur working in Energy sectors.
Yomari Code Camp is a two-day event in LOCUS which provides a platform for the students as well as tech enthusiasts to initiate an idea and deploy it into a useful application. The participants come up with a feasible idea which falls into one of the pre-specified category and work during the first day to convert that idea into a viable product.
Hack-a-week is one of the pre-events being organized by LOCUS as a means to bring together developers, programmers and tech-enthusiasts and stimulate them to get involved in a competitive and innovative challenge. Hack-a-week aspires to become a hub to amass large number of enthusiasts coming from different disciplines working together to come up with impactful solutions in raging issues.
Robo Warz is all about pushing the opponent robot outside the circular or hexagonal Arena. The Last Robot standing in the arena will be the Winner of the game.
Drones are the unmanned aerial vehicles capable of autonomous or manual flight. But in Dronacharya, the drones will have to fly for their glory, fly to win!
Locus Project Competition
All students interested to showcase their projects are lined up against each other to select the winner for the best projects.
With the advancement of science and technology in the globe and sharing a boarder with two big technology hub nations, Nepal cannot remains in darkness or without their influences. As our country itself is in developing phase so is the technology. However, the progress it has made in recent years in the field of science and technology is very much satisfying. Different software and IT companies are making an impact on global scale. Engineering graduates are being inspired to establish their own startup.
Note from the dean
Professor Ramchandra Sapkota
It is my pleasure to introduce the LOCUS, a National Technological Festival of IOE Pulchowk Campus, which presents an opportunity for young students in the field of Computer, Electronics and Electrical Engineering to show case their talent and get an exposure to real world. LOCUS is a three day long exhibition with many pre-events and post events. The organizing team of LOCUS is keen to go the extra mile to make it a successful and memorable event. An event like this requires vigorous planning and the work starts months before the event. The organizing team needs robust support from many companies and organizations. This collaboration has given the companies and organizations to increase their brand value in the student community and among the thirty thousand plus visitors of the event. LOCUS and IOE Pulchowk Campus would be delighted to culminate this association into a mutual and perennial relationship.
