This Program Opens New Doors to Refugees

Recently in Amman, Jordan, a class of 18 students – half of them refugees -- began a one-year course of study in computer science and entrepreneurship. Part of the Refugee Action (ReACT) Certificate Program that grew out of a global challenges competition at MIT, the program will include internships with local companies and could help attendees secure better-paying jobs.

The need for programs like these are growing, MIT representatives say. Learn more about the work they do with Engineering360's coverage of the program here.
