MIT Lincoln Labs Summer Internships
MIT Lincoln Laboratory
The work at MIT Lincoln Laboratory involves a wide array of disciplines as the investigation into one question can expand into more questions and ultimately complex answers. Electrical engineers, physicists, computer scientists, mathematicians, biologists, and mechanical engineers, to name a few, work in multidisciplinary teams collaborating on creative solutions. Since its establishment in 1951, Laboratory staff have been addressing issues critical to national security. From the early days of work on detecting and responding to potential attacks by long-range aircraft to current work aimed at biochemical threats, the Laboratory has evolved. While the specific challenges have changed, the mission is unaltered—to investigate and test high-tech answers to defense questions. Along the way, Lincoln Laboratory has developed cutting edge technology applicable to an array of science and engineering needs.
