How do I apply to the group?

Students are admitted through the Media Arts and Sciences academic program. Application information is available online.

What’s the best way to learn more about the Space Enabled research group?

Read through the overview and research papers referenced on the Space Enabled website. If you can, come to the Media Lab open house for prospective students on October 2.

What types of students is the Space Enabled research group looking for?

The Space Enabled research group brings together students with a variety of backgrounds who share the common goal of combining multiple disciplines to advance justice by improving the design of complex systems. We welcome students with multiple, seemingly unrelated interests. Some of the skillsets relevant to the projects we plan to pursue include engineering (ie systems, electrical, mechanical, aerospace, etc), design, technology policy, law, social science, geospatial and geographic science, earth science, public health, environmental science, history, art, and data analytics.

We highly value applicants with previous professional experience, though this is not required.

Do you require a portfolio? What should it include?

The Space Enabled research group does not require a portfolio submission, but we are always interested to see examples of projects that you have worked on. The best way to share examples of your work is to include relevant URLs in your application.
