Never participated in UROP? Want to get involved, but don't know where to start? Come to the 2012 IAP UROP Expo and meet faculty, staff, and students representing UROP departments, labs, and centers across campus. The Expo provides an excellent opportunity to find out about UROP in the areas that interest you most!

Knowledgeable representatives from participating departments will be on hand to answer your UROP-related questions, such as:

- When is the best time to start looking for a UROP?
- What is the best way to approach faculty within the department?
- What kind of experience might I need?
- I'm interested in a specific type of research; who in the department should I contact?

UROP students will display posters on their research and share their UROP experiences. UROP staff will be on hand to answer your questions about the UROP proposal process, research credit, funding, and other aspects of the program.

Participants requested to attend all sessions (non-series)
Prereq: First Year and Second Year Students

This year students will work on designing Portable Windmills for Electricity Generation in Remote Areas.

This short course offers students an interdisciplinary perspective on solving some of the world’s biggest challenges to date. These issues span topics covered in a wide variety of fields, such as business, engineering and the social sciences. How will MIT develop the best technologies? Scientists must delve into the area of interest and understand the need of the people; they must assess environmental and social impacts; and they must ensure feasibility – scientifically and economically – so that the technology can be produced.
