Keeping the fun and spirit of campus life alive

Keeping the fun and spirit of campus life alive, the Department of Management Studies (DoMS),National Institute of Technology,Tiruchirappalli, held the Inaugural ceremony of FIRM Games'20 on a virtual platform on 12th September 2020.The week long program is an annual ritual followed by the Department wherein the 
students participate in a series of provocative intra-departmental competitions.The prime focus of FIRM Games is to engage the new batch of students and help them integrate with their fellow batch mates and 
senior students of DoMS.

The inaugural ceremony was graced by the Head of the Department in the presence of the department faculty and students. It started off with a brief introduction on FIRM Games followed by the welcome address from 
the Head of the Department,Dr.P.Sridevi, who officially declared FIRM Games 2020 open.

Dr.P.Sridevi, highlighted the vitality of the program and stated it as one of the remarkable events in the DoMS calendar, every year. She encouraged the students to dynamically engage and participate in all 
the events. She appreciated the second year students for organizing the event via virtual platform by incapacitating all the constraints.

The series of activities in FIRM Games consists of managerial events like Best Manager, B-Plan, Adzap and B-Quiz to test the business acumen of the students and other non-managerial events like JAM, 
Content Writing and Flip designed to hone the soft skills of the newcomers and make them more adept, as they step into a new phase of their life at DoMS. A range of informal events like Photography, 
Singing, Dancing and Poster creation competitions are also conducted online to enrich the students learning experience.

The juniors and seniors are split into four teams (Falcons, Invincibles, Rudras and Morpheus) where they fight tooth and nail to grab the coveted trophy. Given the current scenario the event is being 
hosted online this year, but the geographical limitations do not indicate any shortcoming in the proceedings. The idea of FIRM Games is to inculcate the fact among the students that teamwork is the basis of 
management and to equip them with the necessary skills to help them in pave their way in the corporate world. Last year the nail biting competition ended with the Falcons wresting the trophy from three time 
champions Morpheus in a close match.Having recently won the honor of being the best non-engineering department of NIT Tiruchirappalli, the holistic environment and engaging atmosphere is what sets it apart 
from the other departments.
