Of IEEE branch chapter

Techloop is an IEEE initiative which began with a simple objective: Students Teaching Students. Techloop provides an environment for students to learn from other students by the means of hands-on projects and interactive sessions. As the tagline, ‘stay in the loop’ suggests, Techloop truly keeps the students informed about all the happenings and developments in the technological industry. ITC presents three parallel techloop tracks: Machine Learning, Internet Of Things and Android Application Development. Click here to read more about techloop 

IEEE Techloop Congress presents 3 parallel techloop tracks.
Machine Learning
Explore the world of machine learning and master the theory and practical implementation of the most popular ML algorithms. Learn how to build your own intelligent predictive models in our workshop!
Internet Of Things
In our IOT track, we begin with the basics of electronics - various types of protocols, basics of cloud and IoT, along with the specific components used; and then moving on to the NodeMCU microcontroller board and coding on the same using the Arduino IDE. Also learn how to connect the board to the internet using backend services.

We shall not be providing these components during the workshop, and will only be giving a live demonstration. Participants are free to bring their own for a better understanding of what's being taught.

Android Application Development
The Android App Dev track will teach you the method of implementing basic UI/UX screens like button action, onboarding screens and the splash screen. We shall also explain how tab behaviour is implemented, as well as how to fetch weather data from an API to create your very own weather app!
