Industry Studies @ MIT

Many of the most important problems in the management of technological enterprise are occurring at the interface of engineering and the social and behavioral sciences. The Industrial Performance Center is committed to a program of research that promotes cross-fertilization and mutual enrichment of these disciplines.

As a research center, the IPC does not admit students directly. Students working at the IPC come from a broad range of departments, including Economics, Political Science, Engineering Systems, Management, Nuclear Science and Engineering, Urban Studies and Planning, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and Science, Technology and Society.
