Each spring, the Department invites admitted students to come as a group to visit the campus to meet with faculty, learn more about the academic programs and current research, explore some of the research facilities, and spend a weekend immersed in the culture of MIT. The Department typically covers partial travel costs for students (domestic and international) to visit during these weekends. Due to covid-19, visiting weekend will be remote, March 11-14, 2021.
We strongly encourage admitted students to visit MIT, regardless of your initial inclination to accept or decline the offer of admission. Obviously, you will be able to make a much more well informed decision about whether MIT is right for you, after spending time with faculty, current students, and your potential classmates in the fall.
Note: These weekends are intended for students admitted to the doctoral track.
