About UX at MIT


Our Process

Our group is an internal consultancy available to the entire MIT community. All our services are free of charge. Our work begins with a meeting to learn about your project or individual need. We aim to understand your goals, learn about your project audience and timeline, and then discuss your context, constraints, and expectations. Building upon this understanding, we selectively offer you the methods and solutions best suited to your situation.

We offer a wide array of consulting, including assistive technology implementation for individuals with disabilities, user interviews & user surveys, user testing & user evaluation (both live and remote), accessibility & usability expert reviews, assistive technology and screen reader code reviews, and tools to evaluate the usability and accessibility of products.

Contact us to discuss your project or need.

Our MIT Community Focus
