Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Mission: The MIT School of Engineering’s mission is to educate the next generation of engineering leaders, to create new knowledge, and to serve society.

We strive to attract the most talented people in the world: to create, to innovate, and to see the unseen. Close knit and collaborative, the school is embedded in a hub for technology innovation, Kendall Square, and surrounded by the old-world charm and cosmopolitan brio of Cambridge-Boston.

The largest of MIT’s five schools, the School of Engineering comprises about 70 percent of the Institute’s undergraduate majors and 45 percent of graduate students. Just over a third of MIT’s faculty are in the school, and they generate more than half of the sponsored research at the Institute.

Values: Our kind of engineer views praise as an invitation to tackle the next problem — and the harder, the better.

The things we have built — from genetic circuits to electrically driven shockwaves for water desalination — cross disciplines and departments, and in some cases, fuse them together. Advances in 3D printing, nanofabrication, robotics, and other technologies happen here every day.

The challenges we seek to solve, from cybersecurity to fusion energy to Alzheimer’s, require more than apps. Our kind of innovation can take decades.

Deep technology and science-based engineering are at the heart of what we do and who we are. Quantum computing, self-healing materials, programming bacteria to fix atmospheric nitrogen, and autonomous vehicles require rigor, passion, and a breakthrough, or two, or three.

We also provide a strong residential living and learning environment: More than 130,000 square “maker spaces”; dynamic research experiences for students; integrated study abroad and co-ops; and on-ramps and varied paths for innovation and entrepreneurship. A thriving arts and humanities scene, athletics (20 percent of undergrads play varsity), and, of course, hacks, round out student life.

Through K–12 programs, professional learning opportunities, digital tools, and personalized learning, we are also committed to opening up engineering to everyone — and transforming teaching through evidence and student input. In that sense, we are, in the words of MIT President Reif, “restlessly reinventing” ourselves to make a better world.

After all, we are the kind of place that doesn’t just talk about “moon shots,” but one that helped accomplish the real thing. The notion of making a better world is not sloganeering. It’s what we do. It’s what we have always done. (Information and image courtesy MIT)

A quiet pursuit of the extraordinary.

Our story began over 130 years ago, in a sandstone building overlooking Hobart. Since those early days, with three lecturers teaching eleven students, our purpose has remained the same. Through academic excellence, we make our home, and the world, a better place.

Here, success takes a certain determination and imagination. With our isolated location and small population, we have always had to work differently. It’s what makes Tasmanians such creative thinkers and problem solvers. And it has seen us generate powerful ideas both for and from our island.

Here, we nurture our environment as it nurtures us.

Just as the winds and elements shaped this land, this land shapes everything we do. That’s why, today, we fight to protect our island home. As a university, we study and preserve some of the last great wilderness on our planet. From our island shores, our research extends to the great Southern Ocean and down to the Antarctic.

Here, everything is connected.

Literature students ponder the vast Southern Ocean. Scientists sing. Doctors design. Teachers become entrepreneurs. Architects devote themselves to sheltering the needy.

Our creative minds capture our unique land and seascapes, reminding us why our island is worth fighting for. They tell stories that resonate far away. Our institutions lead in medical, agricultural, social and environmental research. Our small setting allows us to test big ideas, leading to greater outcomes for the world.

We welcome all enquiring minds, from near and far, to join our pursuit. Every one of our students becomes part of a welcoming, collaborative community. And our whole island becomes their campus.
