PHOENIX, the official technical club of Netaji Subhash Engineering College was founded by a group of individuals in January 2006, who thought about the nagging problems regarding placements & jobs. PHOENIX by means of its various activities tries to bridge the gap between the illustrious student and the efficient professional- be it in the software or core sector. What started as a platform for people to come and share their ideas, has now diversified into an entity, which by means of its many activities, has provided an unlimited impetus to the esteem of our college.

It was first conducted by PHOENIX in 2006, and ever since it has grown in stature and status. Several entertaining and educative events have been inculcated, since the last 3 years, and a new height was achieved when AVENIR went inter-college for the first time this year, in 2009, with prizes worth Rs 1 lakh being given away. Replete with quizzes, debates, business plans, Sudoku, crosswords, chess and of course the most popular of the lot- Robotics and Gaming, AVENIR promises to get only better with the passage of time.
