In a recent announcement, the premier cloud based, Virtual Electronics Labs DoCircuits announced the International Online Circuit Design Competition “CircuitTrek 2013” open for registrations. CircuitTrek is an international online circuit design competition for students of engineering and technical colleges. The competition will run for three weeks and every week, the teams will be presented with a set of problems on circuits to solve. Teams have to solve the problems online on the Virtual Electronics Lab .
Teams would be evaluated on their problem solving capabilities, correctness of solution and out of the box thinking capabilities for design.
Talking about CircuitTrek, Debabrata Bagchi (Deb), CEO DoCircuits said, “Students in over 400 schools across the world use our Virtual Labs and we have created a vibrant ecosystem of electronics lovers. CircutTrek is another initiative to spread the love of electronics and bring our community together. Imagine students and schools from across the world competing and they can participate from their schools, homes and dorms.”
CircuitTrek has some interesting prizes lined up including Free full access to DoCircuits.com for 100 students from the top 3 teams cash prizes and more. “We are giving away prizes worth $10,000 this year,” Deb added. “However, personally I think LinkedIn/ Professional recommendation that we have for the winning teams will be much more valuable to the students.”
“I am an avid fan of everything science fiction, from Asimov to Star Wars and CircuitTrek has an interesting theme this year that perhaps reflects my passion,” Deb said. “Circuitship Enterprise has been hit by a gamma ray and Captain Diode needs help of Electronics Geeks to fix his ship. Are you up for the challenge?”
