About MIT Professional Education
MIT Professional Education, organized under the School of Engineering in 2002, provides continuing education courses and lifelong learning opportunities for science, engineering, and technology professionals at all levels. Courses are taught on the MIT Campus, digitally or at locations around the world.
Worthy of note is that MIT faculty lead and teach all MIT Professional Education offerings. Some of our programs have a long history, others are relatively new.
Short Programs, formerly called the Professional Institute, draws more than 1200 global participants to campus each year to attend some 50 short courses,1-5 days long, offered primarily in the summer.
Some of our short courses are offered in international locations through International Programs.
Companies and organizations engage MIT Professional Education to develop tailor-made Custom Programs that range from a day to a yearlong sequence of sessions, on or off campus.
