The NEET Ways of Thinking include, among many others, creative, ethical, critical, analytical, and systems-level thinking. Student teams engage in challenge-based learning in interdisciplinary engineering education via the NEET program threads, namely, Advanced Materials Machines, Autonomous Machines, Digital Cities, Living Machines, and Renewable Energy Machines. Student teams learn how to apply various Ways of Thinking for solving these challenges, including practical methods and tools which they can later use at MIT and beyond. Subject can count toward the 6-unit discovery-focused credit limit for first-year students.
