Students Who Are Applying to MIT Graduate Degree Studies (MS and PhD)
Students who are seeking admission to MIT as regular degree graduate students please note that graduate students are not admitted to MIT by individual faculty members or laboratories. Prospective students need to apply for admission through MIT, see: http://web.mit.edu/admissions/graduate/
The faculty then will consider students for their research programs from the list of students who have already have been admitted to MIT. If you have been admitted to graduate study at MIT please look at the projects on our website (http://robots.mit.edu/) and if you find our current research interesting, then please contact us (FSRL@MIT.edu).
Visiting Graduate Students
We have had a number of visiting graduate students over the years that have been important contributors to our research. However, the places for such students are quite limited. Based on this experience we have established the following guidelines to prospective visiting graduate students.
Visiting Undergraduate Students
We generally do not considered visiting undergraduate students, particularly those from outside the United States. The undergraduates who do participate in our research are current MIT students under the MIT Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP).
1. For individuals who have or expecting their PhD shortly. Please consults our laboratory web page for specific open postdoctoral open for which we currently have funding: http://robots.mit.edu/
2. For individual with funding or who will be applying to funding from their home university or country look at current research projects described on our web site. Applications from individuals with interest and experience in these areas of research are of most interest to us.
3. If you are applying from outside of the United States, please note the administrative procedures of the obtaining a Visa from The United States Immigration is handled by both the individual and MIT. It can take a number of months to arrange.
4. The regulations by MIT and the United State government minimum level of support that the funds that have a present limit. For 2009 this value is $37,000. It is expected that is this value will increase in 2010. Also this amount cannot be personal funds, but must come from the post docís sponsoring organization.
Company Funded Visiting Engineers and Researchers.
