Through Engineering Experience at MIT (E2@MIT), high school seniors from across the country who have a strong academic record and interest in science and engineering – and many of whom come from underrepresented or underserved communities – participate in a one-week residential program for enrichment in science and engineering. Students complete a short project course in an engineering field; attend admissions and financial aid sessions; tour labs; meet with MIT faculty, students, and alumni; and participate in social events. In 2014, E2@MIT served a record breaking 107 students.
In 2017, the E2@MIT program will be held July 23 to July 30. Upon acceptance, students should email firstname.lastname@example.org if they have concerns about program dates conflicting with school obligations.
Eligible students can apply online at summerapp.mit.edu during the fall semester of their junior year in high school.
All educational, food and boarding costs are generously covered by our funders. Students only pay for transportation to and from MIT.
Students take one intensive project-based course. In 2017, courses offered will include: Electronics, Underwater Robotics, and Synthetic Biology.
In 2015, courses included:
