MechE Alliance


The MechE Alliance taps into the MIT Department of Mechanical Engineering’s diverse and distinguished community to foster meaningful relationships between students, alumni, and industry partners. We connect members of the MechE community through a variety of programs and on-campus events.


Industry Immersion Projects

The Industry Immersion Projects (I2P) Program is a flagship MechE Alliance program that provides current MIT MechE graduate students with a unique opportunity to participate in a short-to-medium term industry project. The I2P Program sustains connections between educators in academia and practitioners in industry while giving students invaluable experiencing tackling a project in industry.

MechE Alliance Careers

The MechE Alliance Careers (MAC) program facilitates and enhances recruitment out of MIT's Department of Mechanical Engineering. MAC helps prepare the next generation of mechanical engineers for careers in industry by enhancing knowledge of the variety of opportunities for mechanical engineering graduates and facilitating the connections to key industries and employers.
