A total of 60-participants from various universities/institutes of NCR (National Capital Region) including Amity University, GD Goenka University, KR Mangalam University, MVN University, D.S.D Government College etc. participated in the workshop. Participants from different fields like engineering, management, pure & applied mathematics, and optometry created a truly diverse learning environment during the workshop. The workshop was highly appreciated by all the participants.
