Junior Lab

Welcome to MIT Junior Lab! Junior Lab is a two semester sequence in experimental physics offered by the MIT Department of Physics, usually taken by third-year physics majors (hence the name). The course focuses on the professional and personal development of the student as a scientist through the medium of experimental physics. These web pages are intended to help serve several groups:

  • Current Junior Lab students
  • MIT students thinking of taking Junior Lab
  • Educators and students at other institutions

Important links for current Junior Lab students:
