What Makes Us Special

About Massachusetts Institute of Technology

MIT is a place where smart people solve big problems; a research university with a culture of energetic entrepreneuralism and people who believe that great value comes from bumping into each other. We are committed to world-class inquiry in math, science, and engineering and have equally distinguished programs in architecture, the humanities, management, arts and social sciences.
