The MIT Industrial Connection Program (ICP) is an affiliate program to enhance company visibility for the purpose of recruiting students in MIT’s department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (EECS). Upon joining the ICP, companies receive customized advice and assistance in communicating information to the students about the company and its job opportunities, as well as access to special ICP benefits and events.
Students who attend ICP events learn about industry expectations and corporate cultures and gain a better understanding of how their own skills fit summer internship and full time job opportunities. They also develop communications skills by networking with company representatives and gain knowledge that helps them make better decisions about their careers.
ICP primarily reaches the undergraduate and MEng students in the EECS department, although some PhD students do attend ICP events. ICP does not connect companies with faculty or research groups -- that is the domain of the Labs Affiliated with the EECS Department. See EECS Research. To learn more about becoming a corporate member and the current annual fee, please send an email to email@example.com.
