Our education, often cannot keep pace with the practical world and Ethos creates a means of ongoing education. Its primary aim is education beyond classrooms!
Ethos chooses to engage these young minds in some friendly competition as a means of achieving its aim – these contests give the students an opportunity to assess themselves against the best in the country. While these events aim at spurring the budding professional’s already keen eye into observing and imbibing, Ethos’ intention is to go beyond and direct the enthusiasm that it has generated even from remote nooks and corners of India positively towards fostering a national interactive platform that would have a more far-reaching impact.
Archumen and Bending Moment, two of Ethos’ flagship events are popular quizzes on architecture and civil engineering respectively. Archumen has also been hosted in Lahore in Pakistan and Colombo in Sri Lanka. In addition to these, there are many design contests and events in interesting formats that Ethos supports.
