APOGEE is the annual, international technical festival of BITS Pilani. This will be the 36th edition of this technological symposium and shall be hosted in BITS Pilani from 21st-25th February, 2018.

The theme of APOGEE 2018, A CYBERNETIC VISION; is based on the concept of cybernetics, a trans-disciplinary approach for exploring regulatory systems – their structures, constraints and possibilities. In other words, it is the scientific study of how humans, animals and machines control and communicate with each other. Its focus is on the processing of information and reaction to the information by a system and the changes that can be made to better accomplish these tasks. The relevance of Cybernetics extends across mechanical, physical, biological, cognitive and social systems.

APOGEE has welcomed great personalities like Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Simon Taufel, Salman Khurshid, Shiraz Minwalla, Jimmy Wales, Jeff Libberman, M.J Akbar, etc. in ‘Think Again’ talks and authors like Manu Joseph, Jeet Thayil, Jairam Ramesh, Ryan Lobo, etc. as a part of ‘Papyrus Trails’, the literature fest. Apart from this, around 80+ events, which include Technical Events, International Coding League, Robots-at-war, Full Throttle Grand Prix, and many more, aims to incline students towards intellectual and innovative participation in the fest. AAROHAN – A National level examination for Engineering Aspirants, Technical Workshops, Exhibitions in various fields, Paper Presentations and Project Competitions inspires young minds and add to the audience of the fest. Entertainment Stars like Zakir Khan, Abish Mathew, The Indian Jam Project, Roy Zaltsman, etc., and performances in the field of Dance, Drama, Mime, etc. add flavour of the technical domain created around the campus.
