All MIT School of Engineering sophomores and juniors, as well as students from select other majors, are invited to apply to join the Bernard M. Gordon-MIT Engineering Leadership Program (GEL). GEL will accept promising undergraduates who will benefit from the opportunity to undertake team exercises and simulations related to engineering industry contexts.

  • The early admissions deadline is March 8; the regular admissions deadline is March 15. (Students who apply early receive an expedited interview and favorable consideration.)
  • Interest, willingness, and ability to participate actively in GEL are key requirements for admission.

Launched in 2007 through a $20 million gift from The Bernard M. Gordon Foundation, the Bernard M. Gordon-MIT Engineering Leadership Program develops tomorrow's engineering leaders. Each year, more than 120 MIT undergraduates learn about engineering leadership through our innovative experiential and theoretical coursework, and practice and reflection exercises. Our approach is cohort-based, highly interactive, and continually shaped by input from students, educators, and industry.
