DBIT'S Campus Colosseum
By Sahana
Mumbai, Mar. 26. The thirst for innovation, the drive for perfection, the will to work hard and yet have fun is something most students of Don Bosco Institute of Technology (DBIT), Kurla are known for. Colosseum 2018 inaugurated on February 27 is a perfect example of hard work and sacrifice that DBITians are willing to invest to make their technical festival a success.

When the core committee was informed by the Principal, Dr. Prasanna Nambiar, that in 2018 none of the events conducted at Don Bosco Institute of Technology would be a repetition of the things done in the past, the committee was challenged to create a spectacular event from scratch - a truly daunting task!

To fulfil the mandate, the core committee brainstormed and worked arduously to organise Colosseum 18, the likes of which has never been seen before. The preparations began in September 2017 and the committee put their heart and soul into the endeavour. Every domain in the field of technology was scrutinised and analysed to ascertain what the student body of DBIT was most interested in. Centred around those interests, events were painstakingly planned to the last detail to ensure that all participants had some takeaway from every session.

Colosseum 2018 was a success due to the variety of content offered to the participants. HyperLoop, Block Chains, Automation in Finance and Manufacturing 4.0 were some of the sessions during which participants interacted with well-known entrepreneurs and company representatives. Workshops were conducted on Hacking, Django, Deep Learning and Robotics to give participants a chance to learn hands-on from experts in the industry.

It was not just tech, tech, tech all the way at Colosseum 2018. Participants also had the opportunity to listen to the extraordinary experiences of ordinary people who have become youth icons. Convergence was the first ever talk series conducted in DBIT where speakers like Parth Thakur, Harsh Kedia and Hari Sankar gave an insight as to how they overcame obstacles in life to be who they are today.

High on Films was the highlight of Colosseum 2018. Directors of critically acclaimed films like 'Newton' and 'Lipstick under my Burkha', addressed youth about the making of the movies, the story behind the scenes and their purpose in making films on bold social themes.    

Colosseum 2018 taught students that there is a world outside college, where technology is developing, industries are growing and people in that world are not going to wait for anyone. The festival opened the doors wide for the participants to explore that progressive world beyond the campus.
