Housed in MIT's School of Engineering, the Bernard M. Gordon-MIT Engineering Leadership Program (ELP) provides an integrated array of leadership-oriented and hands-on activities, set in the context of the practice of engineering. To develop the potential leaders of engineering innovation, invention, and implementation, the program works both with students enrolled at MIT and beyond the Institute with industry.
Launched in 2007 through a $20 million gift (with a matching requirement) by The Bernard M. Gordon Foundation—the largest gift made to MIT’s School of Engineering for curriculum development—the program is creating a national model for preparing the engineering leaders of the 21st century.
By capitalizing on the combined strengths of MIT's academic programs, prominence as a national leader in engineering education, and longstanding connections to industrial practice and innovation, the Bernard M. Gordon-MIT Engineering Leadership Program provides aspiring engineering leaders with experiences that prepare them to overcome the challenges they will face when confronted with real engineering design and implementation problems.
