Study abroad

Work at MIT on projects that impact society

Marc completed his Master's Degree in Bioengineering Master Thesis at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston where he was able to study thanks to the contact IQS has with researchers and professors at MIT. An IQS professor contacted MIT and a specific exchange agreement was made so Marc could do his Master's Thesis there.

Personal and professional growth

"At MIT, the technology transfer is brutal and they have tons of resources. This makes it possible for you to test things out and fail as many times as it takes. Also, being there for almost a year allowed me to improve my English quite a lot and expand my network of contacts."

- Marc Expòsit
