Program Highlights

ACCESS participants can expect to learn more about:

  • Education and research components of a graduate degree in chemistry, chemical engineering or materials science
  • A day in the life of a graduate student in science and technology
  • The graduate school admissions process, including how to build a strong application package
  • Community and diversity on the MIT campus and in the Boston/Cambridge area
  • Career opportunities and success after graduate study

In addition, participants will have the opportunity to meet and interact with:

  • Some of the world's leading faculty in the fields of chemistry, chemical engineering and materials science and engineering
  • Current MIT graduate students

  • Each other!

"If a student has any curiosity about grad school, or wants more insight into the application process, the ACCESS program is a great way to gain that insight. It also introduces you to amazing new people that you may possibly know the rest of your life."
