A team of 16 students of the JECRC Foundation's MSP i.e. the Microsoft Student Partners came forward to participate in the Annual Summit for the year 2017. The event was held from 23rd March to 26th March 2017 at the famous Birla Institute of Technical Studies, also known as BITS Pilani.
During the summit, various Microsoft dignitaries interacted with more than 500 MSPs who came from all over India. The sessions which were conducted by the dignitaries were all about exposing the MSPs to the advanced techniques and technology that can be put to use. Additionally, they also handed them over a variety of goodies from the Microsoft Cooperation.
A technical fest 'APOGEE' was also a part of the Annual Summit 2017 this year. Teams from JECRC Foundation participated in the competition called 'Robotics War' and competed in the final round.

More about MSP:
Microsoft Student Partners or the MSPs consist of students belonging to various national as well as international universities, who act as a bridge between the universities and Microsoft Cooperation. These MSPs attend various learning sessions conducted by the Microsoft officials (dignitaries) who share inputs about new technology advancements with them. The MSPs further promote them in their universities and colleges. At present, JECRC Foundation has the highest number of MSPs in the country, totalling up to 38.
Apart from the MSP initiative, JECRC Foundation is also working towards the 'J Student Ambassadors' programme that makes them student ambassadors of Fortune companies such as Google, Microsoft, Dell, HP, etc. At present, there are more than 100 ambassadors for various Fortune companies. JECRC Foundation is dedicated to having the maximum number of ambassadors from different companies.
