IIT Palakkad's International and Alumni Relations (IAR) Cell gives out annual awards to recognise notable research outcomes (such as publications, novel prototype development, etc.) and/or innovations (such as proof-of-concept towards establishing start-ups or entrepreneurial ventures) by undergraduate students. The winners for 2021-22 were announced at the induction ceremony of the new IAR team held on Sunday, 26 June 2022.
First Prize: Aniket Singh Rajpoot (CS) and Arjun (EE) for the project Emotion Recognition through EEG signals mentored by Dr. Mahesh Raveendranatha Panicker. The project was started informally based on the idea conceived by the two students and later formalised and run as an OELP project.
