application strategies

Since fusion is by nature an interdisciplinary subject, many students may be

able to satisfy their educational goals by residing at any of several departments. However, if a student applies to Department A in a particular year when a large number of outstanding students are applying, there is no internal mechanism at MIT that automatically informs Department B of the qualifications and possible interest of this student.


A judicious strategy on the part of prospective graduate students is to apply to different departments whenever there is sufficient educational overlap. Each department then independently reviews the application for admission and financial aid.


The links below will connect you to departmental websites that will provide you with the graduate application information you need.
