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.
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.
