Registration is open for 2015 MITES: Minority Introduction to Engineering and Science programs. The enrichment opportunities, for rising seniors, are sponsored by the MIT Office of Engineering Outreach Programs.  All three programs are free; two residential (six-week and one-week programs) and one online.  Students are responsible for their transportation to the campus for the residential summer programs.


The application DEADLINE date is Wednesday, February 4, 2015!!


If you are a high school junior who excels in math and science, as well as a US citizen or permanent resident, you are eligible to apply! 


By submitting just one application, you are automatically considered for one of the following three programs with the same selection criteria (http://mit.edu/mites/Recruitment_&_Selection.html).


Minority Introduction to Engineering and Science (MITES)

This intense six-week program immerses students in life at MIT through math and science courses, a challenging hands-on elective course, and lab tours and social events. 

Engineering Experience at MIT (E2@MIT)
In this one-week program, students take one of six intensive project-based courses, participate in admissions and financial aid sessions, and participate in lab tours and social events. 

MIT Online Science, Technology, and Engineering Community (MOSTEC)

From July through January, students in this online program discuss research, receive admissions and financial aid advice, and attend webinars. They also complete online science and engineering projects that they present during a five-day conference on MIT’s campus.

2015 Program Dates: 

June 12, 2015 – July 24, 2015

July 26, 2015 – August 2, 2015


Online: July 6, 2015 - January 9, 2016
Conference at MIT: August 3, 2015 - August 7, 2015


MIT is located in Cambridge, MA, which is located near downtown Boston.  Even though MIT is most commonly known as the “A+ school” for science, engineering, and technology, it also showcases its programs in economics, political science, and management.  And don’t think of MIT students as engineering nerds; the D-III school has 33 varsity sports.  Applications overlap with Caltech, Columbia, Cornell, Duke, Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, and Yale.
