Jon Chu, VI-A International student. “Because research is fundamentally about solving difficult problems, and such challenges exist for everyone everywhere, there is no better way to explore the unknown than through the combined perspectives and efforts of researchers with completely different styles and cultures. Through the EECS VI-A International Program, I worked with inspiring friends and colleagues at Google Beijing this past summer. This experience has shown me the hope that lies in our collective human ingenuity." -- Jon C. Chu, Google, Beijing summer 2007 M.Eng. '09

Becky Bianco, Paris, 2010, EECS student 2012. Becky Bianco EECS, 2012           For me, spending the summer at France Telecom’s R&D Labs in Paris was a horizon-broadening experience in a lot of ways.  Not only was I able apply and augment the software engineering experience that I had gotten from MIT in my internship, but I was also able to improve my French language skills, make new friends, and, above all, experience a new culture with norms and values different from those to which I was accustomed. My internship was with a team developing applications for the Windows Phone 7, which gave me both a look into how software design and development work in industry as well as experience in with a philosophy and style of design different from those I’d used at MIT.  The MISTI France staff made the whole process of finding an internship in France and making sure I had all the proper authorization and preparation really easy, and it was an experience that I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to explore their field in an exciting, new, and different way.
