To participate in Models in Engineering, you will need to meet the following technical requirements:
Ability to download and run Microsoft Excel files with macros. While other software may allow you to view the files, the macros will typically only work in Microsoft Excel.
Ability to download and edit Microsoft PowerPoint files. There are several programs available that can perform this function.
Ability to download and read PDF files.
Please ensure that you have a stable Internet connection as the course materials, including videos, are accessed through online streaming and cannot be downloaded for offline viewing. It is important to consider any content viewing restrictions or firewall settings imposed by your organization.
For the best experience, we recommend using the latest versions of Google Chrome, Firefox, or Safari web browsers. If you do not have Google Chrome installed, you can download it for free from the following link: http://www.google.com/chrome/browser/.
Please note that full support for mobile devices is currently unavailable. While many course components may function on a mobile device, some features may not be fully accessible.
If you are using a secured machine or network, be aware that there may be restrictions on downloading, uploading, and sharing certain types of content. It is essential to comply with your organization's IT policies when participating in the online course. In some cases, organizations have granted special waivers for MIT course attendees, or learners have opted to use their personal or home computers to access the course materials.
