“DIPEX'” is a state level exhibition cum competition of the working models prepared by engineering students in Maharashtra & Goa states. It is a unique opportunity for students to exhibit their creativity innovation & interact with industry, academic market segment.Started in the year 1986, at Sangli, it has come up a long way, including polytechnic, degree engineering, IIT, PG, Agricultural & research scholars from all over Maharashtra. Dipex has now become an event of annual gathering of creative students, academicians & industrialists.

Adding Dimensions: Over the years, various dimensions are being added to the Dipex. Today it has 14 sections of different streams.

In 1996 a similar competition of working models was initiated for degree engineering students as a part of dipex. To widen the horizon of dipex, various sections involving students of IIT’s, post graduate science faculty, agricultural colleges and universities a new section SHODH, for innovative ideas,and for experiments in nonconventional renewable energy sources, have been added over the years.

Along with this exhibition cum competition part of Dipex, various seminars have been organised to guide students about future scope and requirement in various fields like Reverse Engineering, Entrepreneurship Development, Information Technology, Agriculture, Appropriate Technology etc.

Srijan‘”- A Dipex centre for Entrepreneurship Development’ was established in Dipex96 to cater the need of guidance and inputs for self-employment among youths. Thus Dipex has played a key role to develop much needed link between industry & academic institutions.


Identifying a real life problem faced by country and applying technical inputs to solve them.

Increasing ‘problem solving capabilities’ of engineering students.

Promoting creativity & total innovativeness among students.

Developing manufacturing skills, zero defects concepts in making their projects.

Creating awareness about commercial applicability and feasibility of the working models.

To cultivate respect to work culture, promoting indigenous technology and ultimately developing ENTREPRENEURSHIP.
