The Technology Policy Program (TPP) fall informational open house will be on Monday, October 26, from 3:30-5:30 pm in room E40-380.
TPP is a research based two year master’s program that is housed in the Institute for Data, Systems, and Society within the MIT School of Engineering. In addition to coursework in subjects such as policy making, leadership, law and economics; TPP students conduct research in labs, research centers and working groups, thus developing a dual competency in their respective field and that of policy. Since the format of TPP is that of a standard School of Engineering masters degree, it can often be done as a dual degree with one single thesis satisfying both programs.
TPP graduates enter fields in industry, government, regulatory agencies and consulting, and they help to guide in technology development and deployment. TPP fills a gap that traditional policy or science programs leave behind.
