Grounded in science and engineering, we seek to understand
the world, invent, and lead with creative design. Our students
define the future.
We challenge the status quo with our research and educational programs, advance the frontiers of knowledge and expand the limit of the possible. To address some of the greatest challenges of our time, we use pioneering approaches that range from basic scientific principles to complex engineering design, at scales from the nano to the macro.
Our core mission is to educate, inside and outside the classroom. We offer undergraduate degree programs in the broad areas of infrastructure and environment. Our graduate programs provide limitless possibilities at the frontier of knowledge and innovation.
We are defined by our singular strengths, collaborative synergies, and our commitment to excellence, the fabric of MIT. We foster diversity of people, research and interests, and champion the careers of our students, research scholars, staff and faculty.
