“One of the best parts of the MIT-Spain program is that it is not just a short-term internship but it also opens the possibility of long-term collaborations.  We still collaborating (both online and throughout short research stages) with some of the students we had some years ago. This is a clearly a win-to-win relationship.”

“I appreciated the strong interdisciplinary background and open attitude of the MIT student that worked with us.”

“MIT-Spain’s candidate has been an outstanding intern. He was extremely capable technically, thanks to MIT’s thorough education.  He demonstrated excellent communication skills and integrated seamlessly in the group’s environment.”
