Numerous faculty members and more than a hundred graduate students from sixteen MIT departments have taken part in the IPC’s activities since its inception in 1992. With the participation of faculty members and students from the Schools of Engineering, Management, Humanities and Social Sciences, Science, and Architecture and Planning, the Center today serves as a listening post on industry, monitoring patterns of organizational and technological practice, interpreting them for our partners and sponsors, and feeding our observations and insights back into the core disciplines and educational curricula of the Institute.
