WHO IS MIT?
“What awesome thing am I going to do today?” A new video from the MIT Admissions office tells the story of MIT from the inside out, using the Institute’s best spokespeople: its students.
MIT often leaves me with one simple, powerful impression: this place has an incredible collection of talent. As you read this, many of our 11,000+ students (more than half of whom are engineers), 1,000 faculty, and excellent staff members are changing the world — and many more will do so in the future.
As we start the school year with a sense of excitement and anticipation, I invite you to read about some of the amazing members of our community. From our newly tenured faculty to our dedicated staff, the engineering community at MIT has never been stronger.Ian A. Waitz
