Vortex 2016

Vortex is the largest Chemfest in our country. It is at Vortex that the best young minds in the field of chemical engineering and technology along with fellow pharmacy students come together, take a step away from their textbooks and face the industrial world with all it's challenges. With myriad events to test your talents, Vortex is the go to place for exciting events, plenty of knowledge and lots of fun.


After waiting, thinking, bouncing from one's concept to another's idea, one chemical phenomenon to a hypothesis, we pondered on a very thoughtful conclusion.

It was the famous tagline that all major industries and industrialists remind themselves ALL THE TIME!

And E-U-R-E-K-A, we actually did. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) is what is essential to rule out discrepancies in our current day to day functions to make our lives better, sustainable and Innovative.

So why not create something "Sustainable" and "Innovative" through STEM.... something like "Sustainable Innovation through STEM". STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach.

Vortex 4.0 is all about SISTEM. Making things better, reduce the wastage and increase the utilisation of our surroundings in a better way. Change the way we think, inculcate better techniques and transform it to an unthinkable masterpiece.


Industry defined Problem (IDP) is one of the most celebrated events of Vortex: The Chemfest. It combines various disciplines in its quest to give the most ‘industry friendly’ solution making it one of its kind. The sheer scale at which this event is conducted is noteworthy. Having a proud lineage at YRC-YICC, IDP is a highly popular event of Vortex.

The problems are provided directly by the leaders of the industry and are actual issues faced by the companies

IDP provides an economical alternative for the industries as the problems would require astronomical investments coupled with higher risks in practice.

The prize money of INR 50,000 ensures that the best and the brightest minds participate from all across India.
