A team of eight MIT undergraduate and graduate students won two awards in this year’s U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Better Buildings Case Competition, out of more than 150 students from across the country. The win means MIT students have taken home not just one, but two, prizes from the competition each of the three years it has taken place.

Students Pause for "Slow Lunch"

Is a slow, shared lunch a radical act? In many corners of MIT, where 18 hour lab sessions are the norm, taking a lunch break may be viewed as a sign of weakness... So, on March 21, members of the DUSP-led New Economy @ MIT group decided to have an open, slow, and very homemade lunch in Lobby 7, the grand entryway to this excellent (and often overworked) institution. 

Lightning Talks

12 DUSP faculty will have three minutes to explain one of their research projects--in layperson's language. We are hoping to strike that perfect blend of “fun and informative,” so that students and faculty can be inspired by the work of colleagues and we can all start to explore new ways of working together.
