We were back again at IIT for the second and final day of Cutting Edge 2015. The projects were mainly from the first, second and final year students of both batches with the third year students taking a hiatus as they’re taking part in internships to prepare themselves for the final year of the programmes. Thus far we had seen some pretty interesting projects from students from both Software engineering and Business management batches. They ranged from the practical applications such as an app to check if you’re being charged the correct amount by Tuks, to more theoretical applications such as a device to measure the power consumption of electrical appliances and even a cookie for those suffering from Diabetes.
The second and final day marks the last day that students had to showcase their projects and was also the day that would hold the award ceremony as well.
As it was with day one, we ran through some of the projects that we found interesting. These are a mixture of 2nd Year ISBM and Software engineering students and as well as final year students from both batches.
All that remained was to wait for the Award Ceremony. The hall on the 5th floor was transformed complete with spotlight attached backdrop and all the bells and whistles. Kamalini Sivagurunathan was called on stage to start off the award ceremony to hand out participating certificates to all teams who took part. The awards for the Cutting Edge 2015 were categorized into “Best Poster” and “Best Project”. So without further ado, these were the teams and individuals who were awarded for their hard work and dedication at Cutting Edge 2015.
In addition to these awards, awards for the IEEE coding competition held the previous day were also handed out:
Once these were handed out, a short entertainment item by a student from IIT followed. He gave an upbeat performance of several Sinhala songs that got the audience’s heads bopping, hands clapping and toes-a-tapping.
With all the awards handed out, all that remained was the vote of thanks which was presented by Naomi Krishnarajah who thanked the faculty, students and all who participated in making the event a success.
As with anything in life, all good things come to an end. This held true especially for the final year students, as this would be the last event they would be involved in. After the event, the students bid each other farewell and they had their share of teary eyes and goodbyes.
For us too, the journey had come to an end. But there was always the promise of tomorrow. We made our way to the exit with the promise that Cutting Edge 2016 would be just over the horizon.
