Israel provides an exciting environment for MIT students who are looking to be immersed in a face-paced, entrepreneurial culture. Program participants will return to campus with a strong network of professional connections, new perspectives, and vital skills to thrive in our increasingly globalized world.
MISTI’s award-winning international internship program provides a one-of-a-kind, world-class experience for MIT students: the opportunity to gain real-life work experience in leading companies and labs around the world. Best of all, all expenses are paid, including airfare.
The MIT-Israel program matches students and recent graduates with internships and research at leading companies, research labs and universities in Israel. Internships are fully funded and typically last from 3 to 12 months.
Global Teaching Labs
Learn through teaching. GTL challenges MIT students to synthesize and present what they know, work in a team, and communicate with peers of a different cultural background, all while sharing MIT's unique approach to science and engineering education with high school students around the world. GTLs are often thematic and offered in several country options per IAP.
The MISTI Global Teaching Labs offers a unique opportunity for MIT students to teach in teams in schools throughout Israel.
MIT students are needed to teach the following subjects:
- Entrepreneurship & Leadership
- Sustainability and Environmental Science
- Marine Biology and conservation (those who are scuba certified are highly encouraged to apply)
- General STEM subjects
- Computer Science
