Last Modified on : 21 Jan 2022    Author : Tanvi Mittal

Indian Engineering Olympiad is a competitive aptitude exam. It is conducted on the national level to provide a competitive ranking of the engineering students on the national level. Students from various engineering colleges including the top-ranked colleges take up this exam to prove their engineering Intelligence Quotient in engineering.

The Indian Engineering Olympiad has been started by the Thinkcell Private Limited in 2015. Since then two editions of the Indian Engineering Olympiad have been organised successfully and the applications for the 3rd edition of the IEO 2018 has been invited.
