Helping engineers and scientists

Staffed by CEE Communication Fellows, the Comm Lab offers writing, speaking, and visual design support for the entire CEE community.

Use The Commkit Make an Appointment

The Civil and Environmental Engineering Communication Lab (CEE Comm Lab) is a free resource for the entire community of CEE undergraduates, graduate students, and postdocs at MIT. Our trained PhD student and postdoc Communication Fellows offer individual coaching sessions, group workshops, class and laboratory visits, and online resources designed specifically for CEE students and researchers.

1:1 Coaching Sessions

We invite CEE undergraduates, graduate students, and postdocs to make coaching appointments for any communication task: posters, journal articles, CVs, fellowship applications, conference talks, and more. From brainstorming to final polishing, the Comm Lab Fellows are here to help!

CommKit Articles and Blog Posts

Are you a student or postdoc looking for support outside of coaching sessions? Consult the CommKit, our online collection of quick guides to successful scientific communication for civil and environmental engineers, and our Blog posts on a range of CEE communication-related topics. We welcome scientists and engineers everywhere to browse our guides and examples.

Class and Lab Visits
