SUTD Winter Abroad Program @ MIT
In this program, undergraduates from SUTD come to MIT during the January Independent Activities Period (IAP) to experience the MIT academic culture, build connections with MIT students, and gain lifelong skills for their future academic and professional careers. Our office funds approximately 35 classes and activities during IAP, which are open to both the SUTD participants and MIT students.
All participating SUTD students take a required course on Cross-Cultural Collaboration, which focuses on theory and practical tools for working effectively in diverse teams. This class serves as a springboard for their work in two to four other IAP classes, many of which have a significant teamwork component. In keeping with the spirit of IAP, the classes may be taught by anyone in the MIT community, including faculty, instructors, lecturers, postdocs, grad students and others. They focus on a wide array of topics, and change yearly.
