MIT, Massachusetts Institute of Technology admitted its first student in 1865. MIT has five schools and one college. Currently MIT has expanded from its original charter in physical sciences and engineering to include economics, philosophy, linguistics, political science and management. MIT has more than 10,000 students enrolled in undergraduate and graduate program. MIT is a preeminent institution for learning, research and boasts 73 Nobel Laureates, 47 Medal of Science recipients and 31 MacArthur Fellows who have been associated with the Institute. MIT is currently transforming its campus to green energy. International scholars from Asia, Europe, Canada and across the globe make MIT home for their independent research. Over 3,000 international students are in the undergraduate and graduate schools at MIT. Public access and media access is welcomed.

Quantum fluctuations can jiggle objects on the human scale

The universe, as seen through the lens of quantum mechanics, is a noisy, crackling space where particles blink constantly in and out of existence, creating a background of quantum noise whose effects are normally far too ...

Engineers use 'DNA origami' to identify vaccine design rules

By folding DNA into a virus-like structure, MIT researchers have designed HIV-like particles that provoke a strong immune response from human immune cells grown in a lab dish. Such particles might eventually be used as an ...

Experimental peptide targets COVID-19

Using computational models of protein interactions, researchers at the MIT Media Lab and Center for Bits and Atoms have designed a peptide that can bind to coronavirus proteins and shuttle them into a cellular pathway that ...

Why the Mediterranean is a climate change hotspot

Although global climate models vary in many ways, they agree on this: The Mediterranean region will be significantly drier in coming decades, potentially seeing 40 percent less precipitation during the winter rainy season.

Newly observed phenomenon could lead to new quantum devices

An exotic physical phenomenon known as a Kohn anomaly has been found for the first time in an unexpected type of material by researchers at MIT and elsewhere. They say the finding could provide new insights into certain fundamental ...

Tiny sand grains trigger massive glacial surges

About 10 percent of the Earth's land mass is covered in glaciers, most of which slip slowly across the land over years, carving fjords and trailing rivers in their wake. But about 1 percent of glaciers can suddenly surge, ...
