The MIT-Spain Program
Living and working in Spain offers a unique opportunity to explore the country’s diverse regional cultures, varied landscapes, architectural gems and advances in engineering and technology; all while experiencing Spain’s approach to work-life balance.
MIT-Spain student opportunities include internships at leading companies, universities, and research institutes throughout the year, hands-on STEM teaching at Spanish high schools during IAP or a semester study abroad at the Universidad Carlos III de Marid (UC3M).
The MIT-Spain Seed Funds facilitates dozens of research collaborations between MIT faculty and their Spanish counterparts.
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.
Opportunities are usually 8-12 weeks for the summer depending on the host and longer placements can be arranged.
To apply, must complete Launchpad Application and then set up advisory meeting via calendly.
