Guwahati, Apr. 11. Two teams from Assam Don Bosco University (ADBU) were in the final eight of the latest AICTE-organised 'Smart India Hackathon 2017' and one of them was declared winner of the contest, along with three other teams. This ADBU team, named MATRIX, the only team from North East India, was among the winning teams of the contest and it was adjudged fourth. The programme was held on April 09, 2017.
The ADBU team consisted of six students and was mentored by Dr Bobby Sarma and Gypsy Nandi of the CSE Department under the leadership of team member Abhijit Matak. Their project was 'Explaining the Famous Products of North East India'. Their project code has been delivered to and accepted by DoNER. 'Smart India Hackathon 2017' organised by the AICTE, was a 36-hour nonstop coding competition that involved finding digital solutions to several problem statements made by DoNER.

It was organised in response to an invitation by the  Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi to the Union ministries, to involve the AICTE approved institutions of the country in providing technical knowledge in the functioning of the projects that the ministries had in mind. The AICTE received 7,682 project proposals from the technical institutions. Of these, only 1,200 were accepted and approved. Of these 1,200 project proposals, 31 were related to the Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER) Ministry under six headings. These 31 teams came to Guwahati on April 1 and 2, for the finals of the 'Smart India Hackathon 2017', with North East India being represented by six teams, three of which were from the ADBU.
