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.
Why join NEET?
Built entirely around the new machines, materials, and systems driving modern industry, NEET offers a carefully designed curricular structure that empowers MIT students.
