Student Projects and Activities
Experiential Learning at MIT
An Engineering graduate, on graduation, is expected to have a skillset to find solutions to problems of society. Along with the domain-specific knowledge, other basic skills that are expected are Communication, Leadership, Teamwork, Problem Solving, Planning, Motivation and Enthusiasm, Adaptability and Flexibility, and the Ability to Build Relationships. All these mandates engineering education to be experiential, practical, relevant, and up to date. Keeping this in mind, as an experiment, in 2007, Institute came up with the idea of Major Student Projects, wherein, the institute provides the infrastructure to build a technical project to compete in an international competition. Currently, there are 20 Major Student Projects in the MIT campus.
