Welcome to The Materials Initiative for Comprehensive Research Opportunity!

We are thrilled to be able to provide a remote research and education experience to undergraduate students from underrepresented backgrounds. This program offers participants the ability to conduct cutting-edge materials research with MIT faculty while simultaneously being taught the fundamentals of materials science. The Spring 2021 semester of MICRO has now officially begun!

If you are a new MICRO participant, please register for an account and check back to this website regularly for important program updates.
