Aakaar, IIT Bombay is the annual technical festival of Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Bombay. Aakaar has been working as a great platform for the students across the country to showcase and enhance their skills at the highest level since its inception in 2009. Aakaar is now Asia's largest civil engineering festival.There are many competitions held in Aakaar such as International Civil Engineering Symposium, BridgeIt, ConquerIt, Civil Engineering national exhibition, Smart Pitch which let the students compete and enhance their practical knowledge. As a part of knowledge sharing endeavour, many software workshops are conducted viz, Etabs, Autodesk Civil 3D, StaadPro, BIM, Revit etc. National level Civil Engineering Quiz is conducted every year named CiviQ. And many more fun events are a part of Aakaar which makes the learning a fun.

The ongoing Pandemic has not diluted our enthusiasm. With an ever-high zeal, we have decided to take AAKAAR online full-swing. Join us on this journey in our endeavor to celebrate the Civil Engineering world and to bring together civil enthusiasts and researchers, for exchange of ideas, inspiration and motivation among the like minded individuals of the field.
