What is Instruo?
Instruo, the Latin synonym for “creation” exudes our commitment to innovation and creativity. Instruo is the signature festival of IIEST, Shibpur since before INI elevation. It can be considered as a Techno-Management fest as it has a craze for Technical as well as Non-Technical disciplines.
Instruo through the years has evolved to be the largest Techno-Management fest of Kolkata. Flagship events like The Innovation Challenge pull in Technology Enthusiasts all over the Country to contribute to feats otherwise reserved for college goers. We at Instruo also aim to put the women in society at the forefront. With WonderGirl we aim to give girls their chance. With the ever moving world, it is our effort at embracing Gender Equality. Through initiatives like ICCHE, we aim to bring education in every corner of our Society. Focusing on Equality for the LGBTQ community we have curate events that reek of collective growth and brotherhood.
In 2016 we were delighted to have with us Sir Abhas Mitra as our guest lecturer and our chairman K.Radhakrishnan, former director of ISRO as 2015 guest lecturer.
The core committee also conducts various events like workshops in months leading up to Instruo. Over the Last few years, from humble beginnings, we have outpaced growth in all segments. With major changes in our working structure this year we aim to bring you a Greater, Grander Instruo. We have shredded our scales that held us back and have geared up for bigger feats. Come, join us as we move forward for a better world, a stronger India!
