WTP Calendar

The Mechanical Engineering track of WTP is planned to be a residential program for summer 2024, with housing provided for the duration of the program in the MIT dorms. Applying to WTP is completely FREE. No decision has been made yet whether there will be a fee to attend WTP, as there was in the pre-pandemic years. If a fee is charged, we will offer financial aid to accepted students who would not otherwise be able to attend.

There will be no EECS track of WTP in 2024 

See the FAQ for more information. To apply go to Application.
