Sponsoring internships and thesis research
Developed in response to industry requests, this option enables companies to sponsor internship and thesis research conducted by self-funded System Design & Management (SDM) fellows. Support typically involves identifying an internship project or thesis topic of pressing concern to the organization and naming a company mentor to work with an SDM fellow and MIT faculty member to address the challenge.
This kind of sponsorship enables a company to expand its presence within SDM at a modest cost, work with an SDM fellow and an MIT expert on a relevant project, and favorably position the organization to recruit self-funded SDM students.
