Massachusetts Institute of Technology

School Description

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) was incorporated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on April 10, 1861. At the time of its establishment MIT was a community of hands-on problem solvers in love with fundamental science and eager to make the world a better place. Today, that spirit still guides their way of education.

MIT’s spirit of interdisciplinary exploration has fueled many scientific breakthroughs and technological advances. A few examples: the first chemical synthesis of penicillin and vitamin A. The invention of magnetic core memory, which enabled the development of digital computers. Major contributions to the Human Genome Project. The invention of the electronic spreadsheet and of encryption systems that enable e-commerce. The creation of GPS. Pioneering 3D printing. Current research and education areas include digital learning; nanotechnology; sustainable energy, the environment, climate adaptation, and global water and food security; Big Data, cybersecurity, robotics, and artificial intelligence; human health, including cancer, HIV, autism, Alzheimer’s, and dyslexia; poverty alleviation; and innovation and entrepreneurship.

MIT has 85 Nobel Laureates, 56 National Medal of Science winners, 28 National Medal of Technology and Innovation winners and 44 MacArthur Fellows.
