Hackathon - InOut
Industries have now adopted better ways to identify the best programmers and good talent through events like online competitive contests and hackathons.
Hackathons remain the best means to bring up talented minds together and build great apps and projects within very short time.
Hence, to give students an insight into such events and to let them showcase their talent, ACM NIT Surat decides to conduct Hackathon this time. It will surely increase the number of innovative projects which come up from the students from any technical institute like NIT Surat.
Conducted the Hackathon named “InOut” with other technical clubs at NIT Surat.
There were huge sponsors for the event and it was the foremost Hackathon taking place in the college.

Epiphany Series - A competitive programming contest series
Computer engineering students always want to improve their programming skills. And they love a platform where they can showcase their coding logic.
And why not do coding to get attractive prizes and cool T-shirts than doing boring assignments?
So, ACM NIT Surat organized 6 contests from Epiphany 4.0 to 4.5 this years in the famous "Epiphany Series" and coders from all around the globe came in to participate.
The series not only helped students practice their skills before going for ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) but also made students from all other branches to do programming for fun and learning.
    Winners are posted on ACM NIT Surat Facebook Page.

ACM Hour of Code decided to organize "Hour of Code" where all do programming for an hour.
ACM NIT Surat decided to join and went to local schools to promote computing and programming by conducting this "Hour of Code".

Orientation for First Year
An introduction to the new comers of SVNIT, the first year students about the ACM organisation, its working, and contribution to computing and about its chapter in SVNIT.
Every discipline of engineering, be it computer, electronics mechanical or civil, needs computing to some extent. Hence the event aimed at introducing to the students how computing would be a part of every engineer’s career and showed them the emerging trends and innovation in this field for all the engineering streams, like Artificial Intelligence, Leap Motion (Gesture Sensing) and Voice Recognition.
Global events like ACM ICPC and Google Summer of Code were introduced to them and also the efforts put in by the chapter to help them participate in these contests. More than 200 students from all engineering streams became a part of the event.

Competitive Coding Workshop
The Academic year of the ACM NIT Surat chapter began with a competitive coding workshop. This event was intended primarily for the second, to introduce competitive coding to them.
Programming competitions such as the ACM International Collegiate Programming Competition popularly known as the ACM ICPC, requires a strong background of analytical programming, algorithms and problem solving ability.
Hence, a workshop was organized to motivate students to participate in such competitions and learn practical code implementation along side their academics. More than 80 students out of a total of about 100 second year students.
