The preliminary rounds of this prestigious award received an overwhelming response from engineering students with nearly 4,000 entries across India. The competition was spread across four levels. The first level filtered applicants on the eligibility criteria. At the second level, candidates had to take an online test that assessed their knowledge in engineering subjects. For the third level of regional rounds, candidates had to come up with engineering solutions to solve current societal problems. Solutions had to be original, socially acceptable, economically feasible and technologically viable. After these three rounds of shortlisting, ten have emerged as national finalists, who will now vie for the crown on August 26 in Bangalore. They will once again be tested for not just their technical knowledge and problem solving capability, but their potential to be the next generation leaders.
