Current MIT students can take arranged-unit subjects such as UROP, Special Studies, Special Subjects, Research, Internship, Industrial Practice, Co-op, Independent Study, Thesis Preparation, or Thesis during the Summer Session by prior arrangement with a faculty member.
The following internship track and pre-thesis research subjects have subsidized tuition:
- 3.930 Internship Program
- 3.931 Internship Program
- 3.932 Industrial Practice
- 3.THG Graduate Thesis
See Tuition for details of the policy concerning these subjects.
3.371[J] Structural Materials
Same subject as 2.821[J]
Prereq: Permission of instructor
G (Fall, Spring, Summer; partial term)
Can be repeated for credit. Credit cannot also be received for 3.171
M-F 8 am-10 am, 4-145
Combines online and in-person lectures to discuss structural materials selection, design and processing using examples from deformation processes, casting, welding and joining, non-destructive evaluation, failure and structural life assessment, and codes and standards. Emphasizes the underlying science of a given process rather than a detailed description of the technique or equipment. Presented in modules to be selected by student. Students taking graduate version must submit additional work. Meets with 3.171 when offered concurrently.
