In a college where getting lost is so easy, even semesters just make us go dizzy. Carnival time is prevailing ubiquitously and every department wants to make sure their symposium is no less than the other and Surang’16 from the Department of Mining Engineering made their mark as well. A two day symposium Surang had loads of fun things in store for the students not only from their department but for everyone from college. March 19, 2016 saw the inaugural of the Society of Department of Mining Engineering at Koodal Hall, College of engineering, Guindy which was then followed by different lectures from the chief guest and other guest of honors of the day and a technical quiz. President of the society, R.Rahul, welcomed everyone for the gathering and started-off the event.

Kumar, Director of CTDT and Chairman of the Society of Mining Engineering, Head of the Department of Mining Engineering Dr.K.Srinivas, Prof. Dr. K.V. Shankar,Department of Mining Engineering adorned the stage for the evening. Their interactive session with the students was one engrossing way to spend the weekend evening. The technical quiz on Mining was so exciting that students flew all the way from Government Engineering College, Goa to attend our college symposium. It was indeed a brilliant end to the first day of an extravagant event.
A blissful Sunday morning, and the shining sun paved way for rays of excitement as Surang began their Day-2 at Koodal Hall with technical and non technical events lined up for the day to make it exciting for students from all streams of our college. The morning session saw wide range of innovation and knowledge sharing through paper presentation on the different fields and techniques of mining. The post lunch session was even better. From the clash of robots in Robotron to the excellent showcase of art and intelligence in drawing and cubic’s respectively everything was so gripping. ‘Management Psych’ was another interesting event from the department where anybody who loved problem solving would have loved to be part of. These events were then followed by ‘Labyrinth Quest’ at 3pm at Koodal hall which was one of the prime technical events of the day and was indeed crowd pulling. Treasure Hunt was also conducted as part of the events and was a fun experience as the participants recounted.
The enthralling symposium came to an end with the prize distribution for the winners from the various events and thanking all the people who made Surang a grand success. As the tagline rightly said they don’t dig for talents and excitement, they mine it.
