The second largest techno-management fest of eastern India, OJASS provides a platform to the students to showcase their technical and managerial acumen, brilliance and far-sightedness.
“The fest provides an opportunity to students to prove their mettle beyond curriculum and course studies. A lot of emphasis is laid on ensuring the quality of the events,” said Rajiv Bhushan, professor-in-charge of NIT-Adityapur (media relations).
