As many African countries look towards science and engineering, entrepreneurship and education as pillars of their long-term development strategies, we see exciting spaces for mutually beneficial partnerships with MIT’s world-renowned faculty and students.

MIT-AFRICA manages programs that synergize to promote short-term yield and significant impact. By clicking on the map below, you can see just some of the reach of MIT's engagements across the continent.  

MIT-Africa Interest Group

The goal of the MIT-Africa Interest Group is to connect faculty, staff, post-docs, students and alumni interested, working in, or from Africa. The group is sponsored by Associate Provost Philip Khoury.
