NIT Calicut’s Tathva 21 Is All About The Metaverse And You’d Want To Be A Part of It

If you are an engineering student in South India, there is a good chance that you’ve heard about Tathva – NIT Calicut’s techno-management fest. The first Tathva was conducted in the year 2000 as a platform to showcase technical creativity and acquire cutting-edge knowledge. Over the course of the past two decades, it has grown to become South India’s largest techno-management fest with a plethora of events that range from workshops and lectures to competitions and pronights. 

But we’re still in the grips of a pandemic, so there’s no way such an event can be conducted, right? Well, NIT Calicut is not considered one of the premier institutes in the country for nothing! The students of NIT Calicut have decided to embrace the Metaverse by creating one of their own – a virtual campus where attendees can have the ‘Tathva experience’ from the safety of their homes.
