Since its inception in 1856, Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology, Shibpur has been a pioneer in a vast array of engineering applications. To add to its 162 years of legacy, this year we, in association with TEDx, are bringing a series of interactive lecture ‘TEDxIIESTShibpur’
Licensed by TED, TEDx talks are independently organized series of talks concerning some important and interesting issues.
The event will be a perfect blend of ideas and intellectualism. Speakers from various fields of life are invited to share their incentives in various instances and situations and give us ideas to walk upon.
A hall full of attendees learn lessons worth a lifetime as they leave.
TED is a global movement focused on meaningful change through the power of ideas. We have achieved resounding success in organizing TEDxIIESTShibpur for the past two editions. The themes for these events have been mentioned below for your reference:
- October 2, 2016 – “Theme: Ideate Create Innovate”
- February 4, 2017 – “Theme: Crossroads – When scientific innovation and artistic excellence breaks even we realize true innovation”
IIEST Shibpur will be organizing its 3rd edition of TEDxIIESTShibpur on 16th March with the theme for this edition “The Mind ReBooted”
The third edition of TEDxIIESTShibpur will be hosting a number of national and international speakers who have realized their vision in a variety of fields including social activism, entrepreneurship, sports, technology, media, arts and public administration to name a few.
Apart from the live audience which includes numerous distinguished dignitaries and the who’s who of the region, we would also be reaching out to thousands of people in the TED community and otherwise globally through a live webcast of the event.
