About the New Engineering Education Transformation (NEET) program
The New Engineering Education Transformation (NEET) program was launched in 2017 to reimagine engineering education at MIT. A cross-departmental academic program with a focus on collaborative, project-centric learning, NEET cultivates the essential skills and qualities needed for students to address 21st-century societal challenges with interdisciplinary approaches.
Design Thinking, Prototyping and Education
The three-year NEET program, offered through the School of Engineering, provides new hands-on learning experiences for MIT undergraduate students, integrating design thinking and prototyping within a cross-departmental community. Students join as sophomores and learn how to address complex societal challenges through one of the four interdisciplinary ‘threads’: Autonomous Machines, Climate & Sustainability Systems, Digital Cities, or Living Machines. The School of Architecture and Planning offers the Digital Cities thread, in collaboration with the School of Engineering. In NEET’s first-year discovery class, SP.248 NEET Ways of Thinking, student teams engage in interdisciplinary challenges taken from NEET threads.
