Although the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has only 10,000 students, it ranks among the most important universities worldwide. The MIT is located in Cambridge, MA, United States of America.

With 57 Nobel Prize winners from its alumni, faculty, researchers and staff, MIT is a significant center of education and research.

It is organized into five Schools - Architecture & Planning; Engineering; Humanities, Arts, & Social Sciences; Management; and Science - and the Whitaker College of Heath Sciences & Technology.

Each department is run in the spirit of the founding president of MIT, William Barton Rogers, who held the conviction that education should be broad and useful and always in the service of society.

Exciting current areas of research and education include neuroscience and the study of the brain and mind, systems biology, the environment and sustainable development, information sciences and technology, new media, financial technology, and entrepreneurship.
