Students Activities & Clubs
Technocratz, the technical club of MSIT is an initiative to provide the students an open platform to share, discuss and gain knowledge about all that encapsulates the realm of technology. It beholds the ideology of learning together and growing together.
Technocratz was brought into existence in 2002 by the students in order to increase the computer related knowledge of students and to bring practical approach to the concepts studied. The initial agenda was to conduct regular sessions and workshops in college on various topics related to computer science. Under the guidance and support of the convener Ms.Nishtha Jatana (Assistant Professor, CSE Department), the club aspires to bring to the students fresh and amazing opportunities to learn.
We yearn to create a hub for the students to explore the world of technology. We also partake in the noble motive of shining the personality of the students through presentations wherein they can present their talk on any technical topic of their interest. Technocratz provides a distinctive opportunity to interact with eminent people from the field of technology through means of a guest talk in every session. This community also acts as a solution provider to any software and academic problems or doubts placed by the students. We also work with the aim to educate the students about the latest technological developments around the world through the section “NewsByte” and various presentations.
The MSIT Quiz Society was founded in 2011 by 4th year students, and has grown exponentially in the time span of one year. Last year the first general quiz conducted by the society, Auxesis, received a very good response. It was sponsored by ‘NotehallIndia’. Around 150 teams participated in the intra campus event. The next event was the “Avada Kedavra Quiz” – a quiz themed on Harry Potter! Participation was again in good numbers, and it was a big hit with the audience. The society also conducted a one of a kind “Health Awareness Cycle Rally” earlier this year. The society’s quizzers dominated USIT’s quizzes at ‘InfoXpressions 2011’
Moving onto the odd semester of 2012, the society conducted an intra college “Sports Quiz” in August, which was a huge hit. It was organized by the present heads of the society, a few weeks after which the new team of co-ordinators was selected. Together, the team shall be setting the stage on fire come 2013.
Also, breaking the monotony of the co-ordinator based activities were the MSIT Quiz Sessions. These sessions are open to all, and are fundamentally simple theme based quizzes. Though the durations vary depending on the Quiz Master’s generosity, they offer a fun and simple way of entertaining the quizzing enthusiasts thirst for knowledge, and the new comer’s curiosity about the society and what it offers. There have been three sessions this year, and more will follow suit.
Another feather in the cap has been the Quiz Society’s conquests across various colleges. In February 2012, two of the members came 2nd at ‘Anugoonj 2012’, which is a mean achievement as this is a University level fest, and had more than six competing zones and over a 100 colleges. Also, we had finished first at the Zone-4 preliminary rounds of the quiz. In March ‘12, a team from our society won the Tech Quiz at the annual IIT D tech fest TRYST .Next month we had another victory, as a member of our group won the first prize at Shivaji colIege, Delhi University. In the month of September 2012, another team came 3rdin the Sports Quiz at Synapse’12 at the Maulana Azad Medical College. Society members also won the Science and Technology and Literary quiz at BVP in October 2012, and reached the finals of the General Quiz. Third position at the Amity Institute of Technology was ours for the taking too. We also won the third prize in the Green Quiz at Apeejay School of Management. The Society members also participated in the quiz fests at NSIT, AIIMS, MAMC, and the Hindu College in the odd semester, and we hope to improve our showing at these fests in the coming years.
With a talented pool of enthusiastic quizzers coming up the ranks, the society will only go from strength to strength in the coming years.

Prakriti, the eco club of MSIT, was founded on 3rd March ,2010, in the wake of need for a college society that aims at promoting and increasing environmental consciousness, awareness and responsibility amongst the college youth and the populace.
As a non profitable society, Prakriti is committed to the belief that solutions are more effective and enduring when they involve mass local participation in planning and implementing projects.
Prakriti also exists to support and strengthen NGOs (such as Goonj) and rural or urban communities (like Lions’ Club) that work towards betterment of the society.
Through its various programs, Prakriti provides college students opportunities to develop problem-solving, decision-making and leadership skills, which enables them to participate in future community developments as engaged and active citizens.
An important part of our growth and motivation as people , lies in contributing to the greater good; being part of something greater than ourselves. So, take the privilege and join hands with us in an attempt to transform our society’s present ecological scenario.
