Sports and Fitness

Physical fitness is the key concern of today’s generation. It is the state of well-being and the ability to perform aspects of sports and daily activities. From health and fitness apps to wearable fitness monitoring devices like fit-bit to sports technologies like Hawk-Eye, the use of innovation is extensive today. However, most of these technologies are limited to professional athletes and players. The common mass also demands products that will help in maintaining and tracking their physical/mental fitness. Efforts are being made to inculcate technology in the realms of sports conduction, prediction and analysis of teams, efficient sports management, smart gym technologies etc. In a busy and competitive world, where people do not have time to be involved in sporting activities, the technology developers come to their rescue. By developing better products which are easy to access, we can motivate the masses towards sporty and healthy lifestyle.

Banking And Finance

The financial condition of our country is already transforming with the introduction of new banking technologies such as cryptocurrency and blockchain. Introduction of biometrics has helped in making our private information more secure. Advanced cryptography has provided both authentication and anonymity to our communications. Still, creating new bank accounts or closing a previous one is a long and tedious process. Improvements also need to be made in the fields of net banking and online transactions to make them more secure. Share markets have seen a drastic change in the past decade but stock predictions are still inaccurate. Complaints mismanagement, deposit and withdrawal problems demand technical help. Introduction of new technologies that can help in reading and analysing banking and financial data will help in the economic development of our country.


In today's generation, E-Commerce has proved to be one of the most convenient ways of doing business. From online shopping, booking cabs, movie tickets and hotel rooms to ordering food online, E-Commerce has become an integral part of our day to day lives. However, there are still numerous drawbacks present in the system that hinder convenient, safe and trustworthy E-Commerce endeavours of the users. Thousands of dollars are wasted everyday due to delayed services, lack of reliability and substandard products. As future developers of technology, it is up to us to provide a pleasant E-Commerce experience to the users.

Education and Training

Education involves gaining knowledge and skills that people are expected to have in a society. A good education develops a critical thought process in addition to learning accepted facts. Like all other fields, technology has gained importance in education and training also. It gives us accessibility to professional content and resources. To build a developed nation, education is important and to make education more accessible, technology is important. Providing online lectures and imparting knowledge through smart classes and learning management systems (LMS) are some of the breakthroughs in educational technology. However, these are just baby steps and there’s still a lot of scope for improvement. The need of the hour is to make these resources more accessible and to bridge the gap between rural and urban education patterns.


Modern farms and agricultural operations work far differently than those a few decades ago. Refined technologies such as robots, sensors and agrochemicals have evolved and brought forth modern technology into the field of agriculture. Ph, light and weather monitoring systems in addition to fertility management are essential for the affluence of agriculture and the agricultural community. However, certain prevailing problems seek technical assistance. As students of technology, it is our opportunity to show the world what technology has to offer for the agricultural community and revolutionize this sector of our country!

Assistive Technology

Serving the underprivileged and the differently abled is one of the greatest humanitarian help an individual can provide in his or her lifetime. The lives of differently abled such as the deaf, blind and autistic can be made simpler in numerous ways along with the underprivileged such as the orphans, old age home inmates and people below the poverty line as do not have access to a lot of the benefits due to their financial condition. By making technology more accessible and user friendly we can help them learn and achieve a lot more. The challenge lies in you finding out various ways in which the lives of these people can be simplified. Ponder over this and be the change you wish to see in this world.
