TEDxColumbiaEngineering - Columbia University's independently organized TED event - will bring to light ideas worth spreading. A day filled with presentations by some of the foremost minds will seek to spark conversation, thought and productive exchange among bright intellectuals who participate. From organic chemistry to economics, and from engineering to entertainment, the talks will highlight areas that are at the frontiers of innovation today.

Innovating Social Change Set to be held at the Miller Theater of Columbia's Morningside Heights campus in Manhattan, TEDxColumbiaEngineering hopes to establish channels of communication between students and professors, between prospective entrepreneurs and investors. The three sessions, health, sustainability, and technology information will allow undergraduate and graduate students to learn about the latest ideas in these field as well as how to convert their inventions into successful ventures and enterprises.
