With a view to encourage analog system design at undergraduate level, Texas Instruments announces the Analog Design Contest for Indian Universities for the year 2011.  Up to 50 universities will be selected from India for participation in the contest, which will take place in two phases. In the first phase, teams from within each university/ college compete for a $500 prize (to be split among team members).  The winning team from each university/ college will then be entered in the second phase, called the Engibous Prize Contest.  This contest has a first-place prize of $10,000 second place $5,000 and third place $2,500 to be split among members of winning teams.

 

Who can enroll?

  • Any Indian academic institution that offers undergraduate programs in Engineering may participate. Please note that this contest is exclusively meant for Indian undergraduate students. If a student is enrolled in a dual-degree program, then he/she is eligible to participate if he/she is in the first four years of a UG program.
  • An institution must propose a minimum of three teams, each team consisting of two or more undergraduate students and at least one faculty advisor. It is expected that the teams will independently work on the project.
  • For each team, the proposal must include the following information:

1.  Name of the College and affiliated University

2.  Names of student team members along with their student id numbers and department information

3.  Name(s) of faculty advisor(s) and their department(s)

4.  E-mail contacts of the students and faculty

5.  Mobile phone contacts of the students and faculty

6.  Title of the project

7. A description of the proposed project,explaining the intention, innovation,block diagram, and the TI components which will be used in the project

8.  A letter of intent (on college letterhead), signed by the Principal of the College.(Downloads)
