A Strategic Asset for the Entire Institute

By MIT President Rafael Reif

The programs that make up MIT Professional Education have benefitted tens of thousands of engineers, scientists, and managers worldwide, and I know from personal experience* that teaching in these programs is richly rewarding for our faculty. And for the Institute as whole, the dividends earned over the past 65 years have been tremendous — we are better connected to the front lines of technology-driven enterprise, and better able to fulfill our mission of disseminating knowledge and effecting positive change. Going forward, the experience and skill of the MIT Professional Education team, and their collaborating faculty members, provide a robust foundation for our work in lifelong learning, and a strategic asset for the entire Institute.

President Reif was the instructor for the 1997 short program Multilevel Interconnect Process Technologies for Microelectronic Fabrication
