Area I Laboratories and Facilities

The research in Area IV Engineering Physics is carried out in a number of locations around MIT and includes central facilities that are open to the entire campus, as well as individually-supervised laboratories. Research facilities within an individual research group are typically available, on an arranged basis, to all students of MIT. In the central facilities, students are trained in the proper use of equipment and safe practice when in the lab. Additionally, a number of technician-operated facilities are available for students to access. Below is a brief description of a number of laboratories and facilities supervised by Area IV faculty and research staff.
