COEP Technological University established in 1854, is the third oldest engineering college in Asia. Impressions, the annual cultural fest of COEP Tech saw its inception in 2016, and started with the motto – ‘By the artist, For the artist’. The belief at Impressions is to provide amateur artists with a platform that is culturally diverse, artistically creative and respectfully gracious.
Artify presents Impressions 2023, the 8th edition of COEP Technological University’s annual cultural festival, scheduled to take place from the 17th to the 19th of December 2023.
Impressions stands as a dynamic student-led event festival, featuring many immersive pro shows, an on-campus concert and 25 competitions organized across 6 modules. Attracting participants from all across India, our festival is a showcase for a variety of artistic skills.
