All India Council for Technical Education(AICTE) , Arm Education and STMicroelectronics jointly organise the 3rd edition of “The Inventors Challenge -2024”

The Government of India has been focused on developing the country’s semiconductor ecosystem and catalysing India’s rapidly expanding electronics manufacturing industry. These efforts will enable innovation and India’s emergence as a global hub for electronics manufacturing and design. The Inventors Challenge contest is an effort towards strengthening the Government of India’s mission to create a talent pool in the semiconductor domain.

Since 2022, the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), the Ministry of Education in India, Arm Education and STMicroelectronics have been organizing an annual contest in support of the government’s goal to expand and enrich India’s rapidly growing electronics manufacturing and innovation ecosystem.

In this year’s contest, ‘The Inventors Challenge 2024,’ we continue with the mission to grow the semiconductor talent pool and help nurture innovation across faculty and students.

The competition is open to all faculty and students at engineering Institutes pursuing undergraduate and postgraduate courses in India. This is a team event. Each team should have one faculty and up to four students. The idea should be based on Sustainability, Mobility and Artificial Intelligence
