KolpoKoushal, a knowledge initiative by MIT students and alumni of Bangladesh is going to host the KolpoKoushol Summer Workshop 2016 on July 21 – 24, 2016. This year, KolpoKoushol will focus on yet another innovative way to bring students of different disciplines together, and encourage them to merge and create their own disciplines. The summer 2016 workshop will bring an unparalleled opportunity for Bangladeshi students to learn innovative ways of using data analytics in fields such as journalism, human rights, and law in the context of Bangladesh. Additionally, we will also offer sessions and projects in cutting-edge topics such as Mixed Reality, Big Data Visualization, Wearable Electronics, and topics in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).

Application Submission Deadline: July 10, 2016

This workshop is open to students who value creativity and have a strong background and interest in engineering/sciences or mathematics at the undergraduate level. This year we are also accepting students from journalism and law. Students from business, visual/fine arts, young professionals and college/school students can apply too, as long as they are able to excel the application. If you ever felt that you were a misfit in the traditional academic system, you should definitely apply.


Promising ideas and prototypes developed in each workshop are guided further to completion by the same mentors of individual workshops. Promising projects will be showcased and deployed in our website and some innovation events at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Workshop alumni will also be highly engaged with the mentors trained at the most prestigious academic institutions, enabling further technical and logistical help throughout the year.
