Learning to solve

From developing smart 3-D scanners, to refining desalination techniques, to designing football helmets that can prevent concussions — undergraduates across the School of Engineering are midway through the year-long research projects that are part of the Advanced Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, or SuperUROP. Students participating in the now school-wide program, which was launched in 2012 in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), are immersed in a graduate-level research experience. Taking a deep dive into a single problem, participants work under the supervision of an MIT faculty member or researcher, and their projects often lead to published research or a prototype.  “Engaging in research gives our undergraduates the confidence to push boundaries and solve problems that no one has ever solved before — and that’s the very definition…
