Two teams from the University of Petroleum and Energy Studies (UPES), Dehradun have won the University Challenge of India Innovation Growth Programme (IIGP) 2.0 held on August 9, 2017. As per the University, each team will receive a funding of Rs. 10 lakh each to build prototypes of a submersible Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and space debris management system.
A six member team comprising Rajat Singhal, N Adithyan, SM Hamza Hasan and Vaibhav Bhatia from B. Tech in Avionics Engineering, Cris Thomas from M.
