Don't just talk about “moon shots,” do the real thing — and aim even further (think: Mars). Since launching the nation’s first aeronautical course in 1914, we have helped win the race to the moon, shaped the aviation industry, and advanced national security technologies. Our faculty and students are now shaping the next century of “flight,” applying their know-how to autonomous vehicles and aircraft, miniaturized satellites, and missions to Mars ... and beyond.

Crack the code of biology and put it to work. Biological engineering explores complex living systems and develops strategies for using them to solve problems — from curing disease to developing cleaner energy sources. Our faculty and students are pushing frontiers in synthetic biology, gene editing, and the study of the microbiome, as well as spurring biomedical applications and innovations.

Crack the code of biology.
Put molecules into action to advance health, energy, and manufacturing. MIT created the discipline in the early 20th century and is redefining it right now for this one. Our faculty and students are pioneering photovoltaics, epigenetics, batteries, brain mapping, and more. We are leading a revolution in the biotech and life science industries in Kendall Square and beyond, developing the next generations of biology-based renewable energy, and more.

Put molecules into action.
Combine fundamental science (how natural and human systems work) with novel engineering (materials, design, logistics). Our faculty and students are testing, building, and scaling solutions to meet the pressures of climate change, food security, urbanization, and pandemics. Join us in advancing ecology, structures, smart cities, and global systems. We are creating smarter, better, faster infrastructure for everyone.

Design, invent, or hack everyday digital devices, software, and systems. From spreadsheets to data encryption to the World Wide Web, MIT has been at the center of digital technologies since the term was invented. Our faculty and students are transforming robotics, cybersecurity, cloud computing, wireless networks, bioscience, and nanotechnology with clever coding, open access platforms, and new companies and products.

Design, invent, or hack digital technologies.
Go from the lab bench to the patient bedside, advancing the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of infectious disease, neurological disorders, and cardiovascular disease. Our students and faculty work in close collaboration with pharmaceutical companies, medical-device manufacturers, and some of the finest hospitals in the world to shorten the gap between the best of what happens in the lab with treatment.

Go from the lab bench to the patient bedside.
Redefine the material world — and even make a bit of atomic magic. Our faculty and students explore the entire lifecycle of materials, from extraction and manufacturing of raw goods to the distribution, usage, and disposal of products. At MIT, you can go classical with the Glass Lab and Forge, or see the future unfold at MIT.nano (due in 2018).

Redefine the material world.
Be at the heart of the maker movement in a community of makers. Our makers have developed the 5-cent RFID tag, uncovered the process for inducing tissue and organ regeneration, and coined the phrase 3D printing. From design to manufacturing, we bring innovative ideas to the laboratory, the marketplace, and the world. Our faculty and students coordinate research across seven key areas: mechanics, design, controls, energy, ocean, bioengineering, and nanotechnology.

Get hands-on in a hard hat with a network of nuclear science facilities and labs that rival the footprint of a national lab. Our faculty and students are advancing nuclear technologies, with applications ranging from fusion energy to health care, while addressing its complex reputation and related security concerns.
