Build a microcontroller, develop a strobe-photography experiment, or design for the developing world: these subjects and more are offered through our for-credit subjects for MIT students.
We also support MIT students’ independent projects and offer a variety of projects through the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP). And there's a summer short program in high-speed imaging for professionals.
Electronics Project Laboratory, D-Lab Development, and Strobe Lab are a few representative subjects.
The Independent Activities Period is a special four-week term that runs during the month of January.
Build a potato cannon, a solar panel, or an electric skateboard; the choice is yours.
Edgerton UROPs range in scope from electronics to design projects to teaching in the K–12 outreach program.
Short Program for Professionals
A one-week program for scientists, engineers, and photographers in high-speed photography.
