About Us

Initiated in 2003, Cognizance has provided a podium for engineering innovations and raw ideas to echo, over the last 14 glorious years and has set new benchmarks of quality. Cognizance 2016 was a huge success with overwhelming participation of 75,000 from all over the world and over 15 lakh web hits. Cognizance 2017, aims to achieve the vision to be at the frontiers of the emerging technovation, thus the theme “Eureka 2.0” coherently speaks of the ways to culminate new propositions and accomplish a second “Eurekian” juncture reminiscent of the accomplishment of the legendary Archimedes, by providing a platform for bartering innovations.Cognizance 2017 would solicit enthusiasts to pry in the lucrative fantasies that nature provides and transpire changes to rectify the damages that the ailing world suffers.


Always in the quest to maximize our impact, Cognizance organizes "Expanse: Zonal Cognizance" in days preceding the final fest. Expanse, which is the Zonal Cognizance, aims at identifying the talents spread over 10+ cities of the nation, with events ranging in various fields. The event specializes in various fields, stressing on case studies, coding and robotics competitions, workshops and exhibitions. Not only does Expanse help participants grow, compete and learn, but it also helps them interact with their peers under the banner of Cognizance, creating a perfectly balanced symbiosis. The winners of respective events are directly accepted as pre-quarter-finalists in the main fest.
