The Program in Media Arts & Sciences at the MIT Media Lab
The approximately 400 projects underway at the Lab are as varied as the students who conduct them: from tools for learning and expression, to innovative devices for human adaptation and augmentation, to new modes of transportation for tomorrow's smart cities.
Students come to the Media Lab through the Media Arts and Sciences program of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), based within MIT’s School of Architecture + Planning. Each year, the program accepts approximately 50 master’s and PhD candidates with backgrounds ranging from computer science to psychology, architecture to neuroscience, mechanical engineering to material science, and more.
