A top contributor to R&D in Europe, Belgium is home to top pharmaceutical, agro food, ICT, aeronautic, renewable energies, industrial automation and automotive industries which provide incredible learning opportunities for students. Each year a select group of highly qualified MIT students intern in leading Belgian companies, universities and research organizations.
This summer, MISTI asked its participants to try something new: show, don’t tell. In an effort to experience interning, researching, teaching, and collaborating through the eyes of an MIT student, MISTI requested video footage from over 550 students who went abroad this summer.
Watch them on MISTI’s YouTube channel.
“MISTI broadens your understanding of the world,” said Kelly Kochanski ’15 whose experience in the Himalayas has inspired her to pursue a PhD in geology. “Travel to India pulled me out of the MIT bubble — and shaped the avenues I want to pursue.”
