From holding weekly radio contests to dedicating songs from and to students radio Nagaji does it all transmitting at 105 FM.
It has its office at the CEP top floor. Along with transmitting on air, they also stream their sessions live to the Hostal
PC's giving mp3 music quality. Since it plays not only in our rooms but also in the food courts and the sports complex,
it's constant and melodious presence is an integral part of the life of any Nagajians.
Nagaji provides a platform to enrich the concepts of computer hardware and software. It aids students to gain proficiency in
Programming languages like C,C++,Java by conducting weekly interactive sessions on topics that are not covered in regular
courses, topics that every computer science student should know before he/she graduates.
Basics of various areas in computer science like Image Processing , Animations , Programming , Networking etc., along with
some of the basic useful toolslike Pagemaker , Photoshop , Image Ready , Flash etc., are covered in the sessions conducted.
We make the sessions interesting by giving live demos and make them practically do what they have learnt.We provide
interesting websites and other resources through which knowledge can be gained. We also discuss the major running trends in
the field of computer science.We conduct competitions to unleash the talent within the students and help them gain more
interest in the subject. We organise special lectures by our professors on topics which are of student's interest.
Electronics Hobby Center
The electronics hobby centre is the place to join if you are hardware freak. The centre has its own e-magazine, lectures and
discussions and it also has its own labs with Cathode Ray Oscilloscopes, Function Generators and other lab equipments.
This is where you will find people soldering circuits, wiring motors and working on projects like communicating with a motor
through the serial port of your computer, or making a new multimedia keyboard or just creating disco lights for the next
dance night, this is where it all happens.
From organizing lectures on different topics to giving introductory lab sessions on them, from giving an overview of the
technology behind latest buzz words to helping in building robots, the EHC does it all even providing for most of the
equipment and parts required for projects thus removing the cost factor which is a major factor that prevents a lot of
people from doing a project.
Apart from electronics they also organize debates, quizzes etc. and hold many contests like crossword, student paper
presentations and idea presentations, CRO gaming contests and even basic robot building contests.
By far the most celebrated club, the Film Club occupies a special place in every student's heart. Its tremendous popularity
can be gauged by the fact that it has more members than any other, a number that adds up to be a whopping 900! It has been
a trend that every fresher in the college would join the Film Club, even if he chooses to join no other. The club was started
by a few ardent movie enthusiasts with the aim of providing regular entertainment to Nagajians in the form of interesting as
well as enlightening cinema. The club screens a movie the night before every regular holiday (Saturdays and Sundays) as well
as before special ones at the Open Air Theatre (OAT).
The club also has a room reserved exclusively for itself where the members can go and watch movies of their choice on the
television available. Even if one missed the displayed movies, the member can always view it later. The Film Club has a wide
range of movies - 140 English, 70 Hindi and 25 Other - bears ample testimony to the fact the club can boast not only of
quantity, but also of quality. Keeping all interests in mind, the club has something for each of its members. From 'The
Godfather' to 'Guide', from 'The Seven Samurai' to 'Parineeta', the movies cater to multiple and varied backgrounds. Nagaji
students are not merely spectators but knowledgable about cinema
Linux Users Group
Committed to strengthening the power of the open source movement this club actively promotes the use of Linux and other open

PC's to teaching them how to customize it to their own personal needs and how to do shell scripting and finally to introduce
them to the complete power of the Emacs. They also have as faculty members Prof. RB Lenin and Prof. Prabhat Ranjan who have
given lectures on topics ranging from "network simulation" to "using Linux as an OS for embedded systems". All in all if you
are a power user and want to have true control over your machine or if you just want to customize your machine so that it is
now truly yours, these are the people who help you and this is one will club you must join.
Set up with the vision of personal transformation through outreach activities, Prayaas is an effort to unite the diverse skills
of Nagajians to put them at the service of the society. Its not a social service group but a social assistance organization
that assist the underprivileged members of society in every manner it can. Prayaas has made attempts to put together the
efforts of those members of the Nagaji community who care about people with disabilities and other problems, helping them to
come out of their loneliness and give them the courage to fight it out. It has called for a change in perception of these
people about their view of the world and the worlds perception about them. The ultimate aim of the organization is to use the
resources available at hand and the experiences to enable handicapped individuals to lead an independent life and have a
strong foothold in the society, Prayaas has associated itself with various organizations and institutions in Ahmedabad that
work towards the same goal.
The activities are organized by holding sensitizing orientation sessions before any interaction with them and ensuring that a
meeting can be arranged every weekend. Growth of the club has been mostly a function of the interest that students have shown
in having these interactions and the learning experiences that they have had.
Nagaji Press Club
Since its inception, the Press Club, has come out with an electronic news magazine, Entelechy. The word, as in the philosophy
of Aristotle, is the condition of a thing whose essence is fully realized, signifying actuality as opposed to potentiality.
The magazine has been the started with the hope that it will be the same for every writing talent in the college. Entelechy,
with its variety and emphasis on quality, has been immensely popular in the campus, inviting comments from students and
professors alike. One of the aims of the Press Club now includes the commencement of a printed edition of Entelechy at the end
of every semester. This will act as a souvenir for students going back home as well as being one of the symbols of Nagaji to
the outsider. The club, which is a fully democratic body, consists of students who are willing to play a role in this effort.
The club has appropriate representation from each batch of the college. It was initially proposed that the Press Club
committee contained 17 members, three from each UG batch, and one each from M.Tech., BE. The first committee was nominated
but future elections have been planned to be held at the beginning of every even semester. Anybody who has contributed at a
decent level for the Press Club is eligible to vote in the elections and anyone who is eligible to vote is also eligible to
compete for the posts.
As a torchbearer in what we call as ' coding stuff ', the vision and activities of this club is not limited only to the
traditional C/C++, Java but dwells out to a more broader area of developing the algorithmic skills of Nagaji community.
Towards accomplishing our this aim the club conduct's relevant lectures, workshops , seminars and weekly online programming
contests (OPCs) - a thermometer for the coding fever. Through this wholesome recipe the club provides the students with solid
algorithmic and programming foundation as such that will help them in their placements and in world renowned programming
contests, such as ACM-ICPC, TopCoder to name a few. With the help of various faculties the club conducts sessions with
relevant companies and creating such projects that amply familiarizes the students with creating large and commercial
softwares . Apart from our 'core mission' we conduct sessions on technologies such as AJAX, Web 2.0, Python, Ruby and many
more diversified areas such as Embeded Systems, Robotics, Network Security, AI, Pattern recognition etc.. Promoting the more
popular trend of 'Ethical Hacking' the club conducts various sessions on security issues and keeps students informed about the
latest security threats.
