This collaborative program is designed to solicit open-learning project ideas from industry and engage undergraduate students to research creative solutions in a UROP-like project.

Companies benefit by gaining insights into questions that are relevant to their business, by serving as mentors to the student group, and by engaging with the faculty supervisor for the project.

Students benefit by participating in a paid UROP-like experience and receiving mentorship from MechE faculty and company mentors. They will learn about real-world challenges faced by industry and gain experience working to develop solutions.

Available Projects

Projets are available on a rolling basis based on industry engagement and will be listed below and posted to MIT's ELO listing page.
