About us

MISTI matches MIT undergrads and grad students with tailored internship, teaching and research opportunities at leading international companies, labs and schools around the world. If you can see yourself joining a team of BMW engineers in Munich, teaching technology entrepreneurship in South Africa, testing solar panels in Israel, or tackling a research problem at the Curie Institute in Paris, then you’re ready to join MISTI.  

Each year 1 in 3 MIT students is matched with an international hands-on project through MISTI.
