What is the MIT Electronics Research Society (MITERS)?

Originally founded as a club to give MIT students free and open access to computers, MITERS now features two manual mills, a CNC-mill, lathe, both a horizontal and vertical band saw, 3d printers, and other hands-on tools, in addition to a host of oscilliscopes, high-end soldering irons, and other EE prototyping tools. It’s a member-run creative haven and build-anything-you-want, if-you-break-it-fix-it space.

We’re MIT’s oldest student-run shop and we’re funded entirely through a portion of proceedings from Swapfest, the MIT Electronics Flea Market.

We are open everyday of the week, and we host build parties on Fridays at 7 pm (running past midnight). Feel free to pop in and say hi!

We are located in building N52, right behind the MIT Museum.

Not sure when we’re open? Call (617) 253-2060 to find out or check our twitter page for MITERS DOOR Status. We’re open nearly 24/7!
