MIT has built a reputation worldwide for combining award-winning research and unparalleled technical innovation with cutting-edge science and engineering education.
Students and faculty from across the globe are drawn to the collaborative spirit that makes that reputation a reality: hands-on learning, risk taking, and problem solving define MIT’s approach to education. More than 750 students participate in fully-funded MISTI internships abroad each year, and the Global Education and Career Development office supports students applying to a wide variety of international fellowships and study abroad opportunities.
As much as MIT is a magnet for top talent, it’s also a connector, building relationships and forging partnerships locally, nationally, and internationally between diverse organizations and institutions eager to maximize their impact.
MIT is committed to making a difference wherever needs emerge, regardless of the level of challenge or complexity introduced by pressing global concerns. A rich heritage of social responsibility is at the heart of that commitment—and no community is more equipped to drive transformative change.
