Public events are our way to extend the knowledge and ideas to the mass. The Academic Program organise public lectures and forums around the renowned visiting faculties who come to teach at Bengal Institute from different parts of the world, and big events like day long Symposiums are organised every other year. The Research and Design team showcase their works through public exhibitions and other events. And we often put up launching shows around our publications.
