GEL 1 12 units (6.902, 6.911, 6.912)

GEL supplements MIT’s technical education with the leadership skills that prepare young engineers for productive and effective careers at engineering companies. In GEL1, students complete two short courses in which they learn leadership frameworks and models and practice these skills through simulations and other assignments. In weekly Engineering Leadership Labs, students gain experience both being a team member and a team leader, working on hands-on activities that introduce industry contexts. These experiences, combined with reflection opportunities like the Personal Leadership Development Plan and the Engineering Practice Requirement, enable students to improve and grow. GEL has partnered with industry members and others to offer mentors to GEL students. These mentors are available to advise and assist students in their development as engineering leaders, both in the program and on outside projects (optional for interested students).
