This is Engineering at MIT
We identify problems, and we come up with solutions. Sometimes the first idea doesn't work out, but we always learn.Video and photo by Lillie Paquette; Written by Carolyn Blais
The School of Engineering at MIT has a long and rich history with no shortage of success stories. These successes, however, are often preceded by failures, and countless trials and errors. Always, though, a sense of perseverance seems to permeate the culture of the school.
The students, faculty and researchers in the School of Engineering are constantly working on incredible, world-changing ideas. Devices that can improve healthcare, robots that can make life easier for humans, advances in space technologies, and the list goes on and on. Throughout the years, MIT engineers continue to live up to their legacy as problem solvers.
But, perhaps you’ve heard the saying, “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” In the School of Engineering, we know it well. Success doesn’t come overnight. It takes sweat, blood, tears, sleepless nights, incredible endurance, and above all else, an unbreakable spirit.
