Collaborating for Impact
MIT-Africa is an initiative that seeks mutually beneficial engagement in research, education and innovation, contributing to economic and intellectual trajectories of African countries, while advancing MIT scholarship and research.
Present MIT engagements with Africa span half the countries on the continent and cross MIT schools. Multiple faculty members and a growing number of students are involved in this engagement. MIT has prioritized Africa as a global focus, poising the Institute to vastly expand its engagement with the continent.
