Projects and Prototypes: MIT Student Work

Ongoing

Making stuff is an essential part of the MIT student experience. In project-based courses, in clubs, and for thesis work, MIT students create projects and prototypes to explore, communicate, or make the world a better place.

Students learn to explore their own questions, work with others, and persist through failure. Their creative output becomes part of the science, technology, and other scholarship that make MIT famous.

MIT undergraduate and graduate students can submit proposals to display work undertaken in the current academic year.
