South Africa, Africa’s largest economy, is located at the southernmost tip of Africa, surrounded by two oceans and home to a diverse, multiethnic society with eleven official languages.

South Africa was recently admitted to the economic coalition of BRICS, and with this new position stands as a promising emerging market.  

The MIT-South Africa Program is in its first year with an aim to send 20+ MIT students to intern and conduct research in South African companies and labs. Our partners are leading South Africa companies, universities and research organizations.
