The Independent Activities Period (IAP) is a special term at MIT CTL where International students from all four MIT Global SCALE network centers gather at MIT from early January until the end of the month.
IAP provides students a unique opportunity to organize, sponsor and participate in a wide variety of activities, including how-to sessions, forums, lecture series, films, tours, recitals and contests.
During IAP, students are encouraged to set their own educational agendas, pursue independent projects, meet with faculty, or pursue many other options not possible during the semester. All MIT Global SCALE network students are encouraged to work in a team on Supply Chain Simulation and Projects.
In addition the IAP offers students the chance to showcase their Thesis Poster Presentations, attend interview sessions with prospective employers, network with MIT SCALE Alumni and learn something new about fellow students, colleagues, and friends.
With IAP, the possibilities are endless.
