The Great Mind Challenge (TGMC) is an innovative program from the IBM Academic Initiative, launched in 2004. Through this initiative, IBM works closely with schools that support open standards and seek to use open source and IBM technologies for teaching purposes, both directly and virtually via the web. The Academic Initiative includes an online portal that provides access to software, hardware, training and course materials, most at no charge. Through the web site, IBM offers hundreds of resources for integration into college curricula to help teach students how to master the fast-growing market of open technologies.

The Great Mind challenge promotes students from engineering colleges from across India in their endeavor to develop solutions, for real-time problems and scenarios using IBM open source software. It is aimed to encourage students who aspire to make key contributions to develop applications on cutting-edge IBM technologies while providing them with an opportunity to improve their software writing skills.

The Project scenarios for this year’s TGMC are listed here.
