Isa Pan Selected to the MIT ACCESS Program.

Isa Pan, Junior, Department of Materials Science and Engineering

Isa Pan, a junior, in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, has been selected to participate in the 2023 MIT ACCESS Program.

The program is sponsored by the MIT Department of Chemical Engineering, MIT Department of Materials Science and Engineering, MIT Department of Chemistry, and its mission is to increase the diversity of qualified applicants to Ph.D. programs in chemistry, chemical engineering and materials science throughout the United States.

“I’m excited to learn about graduate school and talk about my research with professors from MIT. I’m also excited about the wonderful opportunity to attend various seminars and engage in discussions with the current graduate students at MIT,” Pan stated.

ACCESS is a weekend of educational and informative events that will introduce talented sophomores, juniors and seniors to the benefits of graduate education in chemistry, chemical engineering, and materials science. The goal of ACCESS is not to prepare students for graduate school at MIT specifically, but rather to introduce them to the advantages of choosing a graduate career path at an institution that best meets each participant’s individual needs.

The weekend-long program offers students an overview of graduate education through seminars, faculty talks, and interactive sessions, all designed to give a greater understanding of the application process and an insight into the doors a graduate career can open.
