UPOP Applications

UPOP is MIT's "career accelerator" for sophomores! We are the Undergraduate Practice Opportunities Program, and we'll give you a year of learning and practicing the  essential "real-world" skills that employers are seeking, skills that will help you thrive in your internship and later career.

We will open applications for the Class of 2021 late August 2018. Our application process is very quick! We'll have you enter some basic information, answer a couple of questions, upload a headshot (hundreds apply: it's handy to match a face to a name), and a résumé—this doesn't have to be a work of art, we'll work on it with you!

Our application deadline for the Class of 2021 sophomores will be midnight (well, 11:59:59 pm) Thursday, September 27, 2018, and you'll hear from us by Friday October 5. 

In the meantime, please browse our website to learn more about how UPOP helps MIT sophomores kick-start their careers!
