The college organizes various activities under the IIC banner, such as quizzes, drawing competitions, and seminars, which are instrumental in nurturing the creative and innovative abilities of students. These activities not only provide a platform for students to showcase their talents but also instill a sense of confidence and entrepreneurial spirit.

In addition to the mentioned activities, the college also conducts workshops on design thinking and intellectual property rights (IPR), which are crucial for developing a comprehensive understanding of the innovation process. The workshops aim to educate students about the importance of protecting their ideas and the steps involved in transforming these ideas into viable products or services.
