The world knows MIT for its pioneering research and innovative graduates. But from the very beginning, MIT has also offered a distinctive form of education, deeply informed by science and technology and founded on hands-on research, real-world problem solving, and a commitment to "learning by doing."
These principles inspire our teaching in every realm, from engineering, computing, architecture, and management to the natural and social sciences, the humanities, and the arts. We seek to lead in the responsible and ethical evolution of technologies that transform society.
MIT is a community eager to solve hard problems in service to the nation and the world. Thanks to our students, faculty, postdocs, staff, and more than 139,000 alumni around the globe, the Institute hums with bold ideas and inspired solutions. We invite you to join us in our work.
