Location and Culture:
All MITRE projects are conducted at the MITRE site in Bedford, MA, a historic town northeast of WPI. MITRE is a nonprofit organization chartered to work on federally funded research projects for government agencies such as the Department of Defense and the Federal Aviation Administration.
MITRE provides a wide range of project opportunities for WPI students pursuing various majors. Most students begin with a paid internship at MITRE during the summer before their project work commences. The internship enables students to perform background research in their project areas and liaise with MITRE company mentors. Each team works with a company-designated mentor and WPI faculty advisor.
