Next Steps in Cyber Security

Bharat Electronics Ltd (BEL) participated in the grand finale of Smart India Hackathon 2017, a first-of-its-kind hackathon promoted by the ministry of human resource development and All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) on 3 April 2017.

The hackathon, a 36-hour non-stop event, was a unique computer programming competition to identify new and disruptive digital technology innovations for solving the challenges faced by India. The event was organised with an aim to harness the creativity and expertise of students from all over the country. Solutions to some of the problem statements taken from the ministry of defence were attempted by students gathered in Bangalore’s Sri Venkateshwara College of Engineering.

Smart applications developed by students are likely to help address real time problems of the defence industry. The winners were awarded with cash prizes and certificates by BEL’s CMD M.V. Gowtama. The winning team members stand a chance to be part of the NASSCOM’s 10,000 Startups Programme.
