Our graduate students are the biggest pool of talent on campus — and the engine of MIT’s innovation.
Whether you’re headed for an academic research career, or you want to develop an innovation that will transform the future, you should know one thing: deep technology and science-based engineering are at the heart of everything we do.
Traditionally a leader in engineering and science graduate programs, MIT also boasts internationally prominent programs in mathematics, architecture, management, and the humanities. These students will be your partners.
The Office of Graduate Education is the hub in the decentralized admissions network that extends across all five of our academic schools. (They also host a great blog about grad student life at MIT.)
In the MIT School of Engineering, students apply directly to academic departments or interdisciplinary programs. There is no cap on the number of graduate students admitted.
