On Super Pi Day, MIT announced its admissions decisions for the Class of 2019—another remarkable group of students. Our students come here filled with ideas and ambition to change the world; our job is to provide an environment and opportunities for them to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to do just that. Some do so while they are still students, many do so as alumni. 2000 of our PhDs have carried what they learn here—mens et manus and the power of collaborative problem-solving—to other schools and universities around the world.
MIT’s engineers have much to share. The best of what happens here goes to places we never even imagined.
