Visiting students at MIT CTL bring curiosity and expertise to the center to work closely with a researcher or research project for a limited amount of time. They generally would have completed a master's or be working on a PhD at their home university and seek additional contact within a specialized area of study. MIT CTL does not confer any degree or certificate of achievement on visiting students, but instead provides a hands-on way for students to engage in ongoing research. Please use the form below to express your interest in visiting the Center as a student. All visiting student requests are reviewed on a rolling, case-by-case basis at least once per month. Please include as much information at possible.
MIT CTL selectively welcomes exceptional researchers, professionals, and students to collaborate and innovate with us outside of our regular academic programs. Coming to the Center as a visiting student may be an option when a student's academic or research profile supports a currently active research initiative and a Center researcher may be of benefit to the visiting student's growth.
