about daksh

DAKSH, the international techno-management extravaganza of SASTRA, is a reflection of the abilities of students to keep up with the world of science and technology which has been metamorphosing at breakneck speeds. It provides students with the perfect platform to test the soundness of their academic fundamentals and managerial flair, further the same and compete with their peers on what could very well be the technology of tomorrow.

DAKSH has been a runaway hit ever since its inception in 2007, when it was first introduced as a place where budding engineers could battle it out with each other and experience a piece of the real world. It has never looked back. Having grown from strength to strength, DAKSH is now touted to be the second biggest techno-management fest of South India.

Perpetual redefinition of the distinction between imagination and realization- That’s DAKSH for you!

We live today not in the digital, not in the physical, but in the kind of minestrone that our mind makes of the two.
