Our department values collaboration and promotes community. If you are interested in learning more about studying MSE at MIT, we encourage you to look at our online resources or participate in our programs.

We have many opportunities for first-year students at MIT to engage with DMSE. Consider taking a class designed for first years, or one of our many discovery and orientation programs.

You can also join our first-year mailing list to stay up to date on events and opportunities in the department specifically for first-year students. For prospective students considering applying to MIT, we encourage you to visit MIT Admissions.
