About Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

Regarded by many to be the top engineering and technology university in the world, MIT was founded in the 1860s in response to the accelerating industrial development in the US. As an undergrad at MIT, you will benefit from the most exceptional teaching quality, being surrounded by wildly intelligent coursemates, unparalleled access to research opportunity, best-in-class facilities and resources – and: some of the funkiest architecture of any US university, including the undergrad dorm building “The Sponge”. What else to know? The university spends over half a billion dollars on research every year. Alumni includes 85 Nobel laureates, 52 National Medal of Science recipients, 45 Rhodes Scholars, and 34 astronauts. The aggregated revenues of companies founded by MIT alumni would rank as the eleventh-largest economy in the world.
