Entziffern was Script's first event under Enigma themed on UK Spies going through a series of tests where they had to prove themselves efficient enough to infiltrate Germany.

KOTH (King of the Hills)
IE's collaborative SIG event, where first years battle their way through the challenges set by each of our SIGs at each 'hill' to finally become 'The King'. It's a series of tech-based problems, games, obstacles and puzzles.
IE Spark is NITK's own TED talk series, where we invite people mostly from our own college to come up and give talks on their areas of interest. Conducted only once or twice a year, due to its strict quality standards, IE Spark is IE's flagship non-technical event.
