Faculty Opportunities


Empower the Teachers

Guided by the synergy between education and research, EECS faculty will share their curriculum and teaching methods with selected partners from around the world. A truly global education program, Empower the Teachers will enable foreign faculty to work side by side with EECS faculty and EECS TAs teaching core level EECS undergraduate classes. Participants will also conduct research during their stay at the Institute — aided by EECS UROP students and/or EECS graduate students.

Participants will return to their host institutions with greater confidence in their teaching and familiarity with the MIT EECS undergraduate teaching methods and philosophy — and an enhanced ability to link the laboratory with the classroom. Following their experience at the Institute, participants will host MIT students, professors, and researchers at their home university. Resulting partnerships will build long-term engagements in global teaching and research.
