The technical committee, christened ‘Disha‘ came into being, entrusted with the task of providing a stable platform to the young COERians to provide a tangible shape to their ideas. Disha officially came into force during the session 2004-05. Disha is entrusted with the responsibility of organizing Manthan, the Annual Inter College Techno-Management Fest of our college and a number of competitions catering to the aptitude and taste of almost every student.The Technical Committee of the college is continuously associated with organizing different technical events throughout the year for the benefit of the students. Through its numerous competitions ‘Disha’ made an earnest endeavor to draw out the hidden skills of COERians, be it in displaying their expertise in quizzing or their aptitude for brush and palette or their appetite for science fiction. Presently there are 27 student members in the committee. Dr. Kamal Kapoor, Asst. Professor, Physics Department is the Convener of Disha.
The word ‘Manthan’ itself speaks volumes. The proverbial ‘SAMUDRA MANTHAN’ yielded the elixir upon the churning of sea, leaving venom behind. Manthan is an attempt to draw out the finest skills, crème – de – la – crème talents, the matchless potentials from the enthusiastic COERians. Manthan, the Annual Inter College Techno Management Festival of College of Engineering Roorkee is a unique forum where the young minds get an opportunity to experience and interact with science and technology and management in all its myriad forms.It aims to provide a welcome change from the treadmill of rote learning and above all fairly groom students to accept similar changes when they actually step into the world of professionalism. A cradle for new and grand ideas, it is ever-evolving and diversifying to act as catalyst for instilling the passion for technology and the zeal to turn abstract ideas into concrete realities. Manthan embroils with itself a number of technical and Management events to fulfill the aim it has marked, the various technical and management events can be categorized as:GIGABIT, CODEX, PIONEER, BLITZKRIEG, KURUKSHETRA, PRAYOG, KOUIZ, UDBHAVA, ROBOSYNC, SHAURYA, SERIO-GEEK, BRIDGE IT, CAD CONTEST
