Welcome to Ask an Engineer!
This section of the MIT Engineering Web site features a series of questions submitted by visitors to our site, and answered by members of MIT's engineering community—our faculty, graduate students, or postdocs. Their answers cover all disciplines in the practice of engineering (and sometimes wander beyond them).
To submit your own question to an MIT engineer, click here. Questions are reviewed by staff who work with local experts to write detailed answers. Unfortunately, we can't answer all the questions we're asked, and it may take some time for answers to appear on the site. If your question is selected, we'll let you know.
Please note: For any general questions about the School of Engineering, including those pertaining to admissions and advising, please visit our Contact page.
