These certificates were awarded on the closing day of a five-day-long conference titled ‘MIT Leading Edge International Student Conference’ held from 11 to 15 June at the permanent campus of Haileybury Bhaluka jointly organized by Haileybury Bhaluka and MIT for the first time in Bangladesh.
These certificates were awarded by the MIT’s Edgerton Center in recognition of the participants’ five days of hands-on knowledge about various innovative activities and their management, including underwater robotics and innovative engineering designs for sustainable climate change.

Addressing the event, Haileybury Bhaluka’s Headmaster Simon O' Grady said "Bringing the MIT Leading Edge International Student Conference to Bangladesh represents a significant milestone for our country. It not only highlights our commitment to fostering global partnerships in education and innovation but also showcases the immense talent and potential of our youth on the international stage."

The success of the conference underscores Bangladesh's emergence as a hub for academic excellence and innovation. By providing a platform for students to exchange ideas, explore interdisciplinary collaborations, and address pressing global issues, the event has contributed to nurturing the next generation of leaders and change-makers.

The workshop was supported extensively by corporates, with Southeast Bank and United Commercial Bank being Noyce Award sponsors, PFEC Global being the Hewlett Award sponsor, Berger Paints, Confidence Trade and Educan being Khan Award sponsors.

Haileybury Bhaluka is amongst the world’s leading academically achieving schools, ranked #1 in UK by The Sunday Times, and in the global top 2% in terms of IB results. Remarkably, 61% of Haileybury UK students last year joined Ivy League and Russell Group institutions such as MIT, Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge and others. The MIT Leading Edge International Experience conference comes on the heels of the Harvard Summer School information session organized last year by Haileybury Bhaluka jointly with Harvard Summer School.
