All India Technical Seminar “Transtech” is organized by TMI, in association with The Institute of Marine Engineers (India), Pune Branch and The Institution of Engineers (India), Pune Local Centre every year in the month of March or April.
Transtech presents a common platform for engineering students to present technical papers on varied topics of interest. It encourages the young generation of engineers to delve into numerous activities such as paper presentation and research work, thereby empowering them with a razor-sharp thinking ability.
The event has been successfully organized since 2007 with excellent response from many colleges across the country. Apart from Paper Presentations, invited talks by eminent personalities in various sectors are also arranged during the event and a competition of display of models based on any of the sub theme are held at the venue. The question answer sessions after the presentations make the event highly interactive and lively. Transtech is really a professional oriented gathering and a new educational experience.
Every year new and relevant theme and subthemes are selected which enable the engineers of today to acquire the contemporary know-how in this sphere of study, thereby edifying them with regards to different aspects of the subject. This varied range of academic exchanges will benefit not only the participants, but also the to-be engineers in the audience.
Transtech aims at providing an apt forum for such laudable pupils to bring out the best in them, thus leading them towards reaching the top echelons of any industry.
A souvenir is published containing abstracts of papers, models, invited talks etc. for distribution among delegates and dignitaries participating in the event as well as to related organizations across the country.
Technical Papers on the sub themes are presented in the conference by students (in a group of max. 3) studying in engineering colleges and training institutes.
There is also a Technical Models Display Competition. Models are made supporting the papers or independent of the papers but based on any of the sub-themes.
The Technical Papers which are not selected for presentation may display the same in the form of a “Poster”. The best Poster are judged based on its content, design, originality etc.
A Marine Quiz Competition is also conducted on topics related to marine engineering, nautical science, maritime history, international maritime conventions, maritime industry etc.
Winners of all the events are suitably awarded with cash prize and certificates.
First Information Brochure and other materials regarding Transtech is shared with various maritime as well as other engineering institutes well in advance. Same may be accessed on TMI Website too.
