IEEE Kochi Hub conducted it’s most prestigious and very own WIE Event of all times, Minerva 4.0 on March 15th, 2019 at Viswajyothi College of Engineering and Technology, Vazhakulam, marking the end of the WIE WEEK 2019.

The fourth version of Minerva, held this year, in contrast with the previous versions of the yesteryears witnessed a total change in its structure. The event was held as a single one for all zones, with female delegates from colleges all over the Kochi hub and various disciplines and year of study. The prime focus of the one-day event was to not simple empower our girls but empower them technically. This change was a new introduction to the typical series of events being conducted and worked successfully with all delegates completely satisfied with the sessions and great feedback was given from their side.

The guest speaker for the day was Ms. Anjana Krishnan, Ruby on Rails developer who handled a session on programming using Ruby for the girls.

A small idea pitching competition was held alongside the two mini-workshop sessions on Bash- Linux handled by Mr. Balu M N, former Chairman at IEEE SB VJCET and another one on Git and Git Hub by the team from ORE Community of IEEE Kerala Students.
