Industry and foundational sponsors become part of the MIT undergraduate research experience, offering expertise and mentorship. Our goal is to have industry leaders from sectors that align with the varied interests of our students. Such exposure can lead to potential recruitment opportunities and lets sponsors stay abreast of the latest research.
