Shaping the Future: The Gordon-MIT Engineering Leadership Program

Educating tomorrow's engineering leaders demands a new approach that encompasses students' professional, personal and leadership progression, in an environment that fosters the development of core values and which builds upon the strong technical fundamentals of the rigorous MIT education. The Gordon-MIT Engineering Leadership Program provides to a select group of MIT engineering undergraduates a challenging and supportive environment in which they develop engineering leadership skills that will prepare them to be highly effective leaders of engineering teams. For approximately 120 MIT engineering Juniors and Seniors committed to honing their engineering leadership skills, the first year of GEL (GEL1) provides unparalleled leadership experiences and development. For an exclusive group of 25-30 students, the second year of GEL (GEL2) is an intensely personalized leadership development program featuring significant interaction with industry leaders, staff, and fellow students. The program also offers professional education opportunities for early career engineering professionals.
