Judging Criteria Based on the conceptualisation(idea), functionality and the business ideas the projects will be evaluated. TEXUS is a culmination achieved when the brilliance of technology meets the creative intuition that is the human brain. It is a National Level Tech Fest organised by Department of Computer Science and Engineering, SRM Institute of Science and Technology, Ramapuram. RUSH’19 is a 24-hour event that will see participants going on a journey that started with a small budding idea and will end with a Minimum Viable Product that is good enough to turn heads. The theme for the Hackathon is to empower students with the power to solve day to day problems pertaining to any field from education to transportation with the help of technology. They must come together on teams of three or four and pledge to solve a real-life issue, one that affects us all and use technology to build a product that is offers a viable solution. It is not domain specific but here the problem statements are given by the companies itself allowing the students to improvise,adapt and also provide feasible solutions for the same.
