Undergraduate Opportunities

Many departments at MIT offer major and minor programs with a significant focus on atmospheres and oceans, both in their physical, chemical and biological aspects, but also in associated engineering and computational fields.

Given the multidisciplinary nature of ocean science and engineering, we encourage undergraduates to explore a variety of areas of study and research, taking advantage of many relevant courses around MIT, as well as to become directly involved in research through the  Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP).

In addition, our partner Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) offers summer opportunities for undergraduates.
