3Dmodel“Mind and hand” is MITs motto and one of programmes that in both parts fully live up to this motto is the “SuperUROP” programme at the MIT School of Engineering. The programme started in 2012 in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), but is now running across the whole School of Engineering. 177 undergraduate students are at the moment participating in the programme, researching and developing e.g. a football helmet design to reduce the risk of concussion that is produced with 3D-printing technology to get the snug fit of every individual user. In addition to completing the research project, students enrol in a course that include conducting a literature review, writing a journal or conference-style research paper and presenting a research poster.
