In the year 2008, E-Cell MJCET had won runners-up trophy at the national level. So, this year the E-Cell had the sole aspiration of going a step ahead and winning the Championship trophy. With this aim in mind, a plethora of activities were organized in MJCET campus like the E Conference, The Treasure Hunt, Short Film competition, Creative activities (paper presentation, debate, extempore, ad making, case study, acting out etc), Model making, Business Quiz, Panel discussions on various environmental concerns and “Environment in Business Solutions”.

The government of Andhra Pradesh was so impressed with the idea of being environment friendly that it readily agreed to sponsor the E-Week activities (Hyderabad metropolitan development authority (HMDA) and Horticulture department AP) at MJCET. Various other organizations also stepped in to sponsor the event. E-Cell MJCET also received a warm response from the Sultan-ul-Uloom Education Society and MJCET Alumni Association.

A team from NEN visited all the colleges across the length and breadth of the nation to inspect and scrutinize the E-Week activities. This team judged the conduct of the events on a scale of 1000 points with due importance to innovation, novelty and newness. It’s very heartening to note that MJCET was declared the champion with six other colleges from various corners of the country.
