The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, just one mile from downtown Boston, an exciting and diverse city known as “America’s College Town.” Boston is not only the largest city in New England, but it is also home to over 80 colleges and universities, making it an exciting and diverse place to learn and explore.
MIT has a strong culture of student collaboration and believes that students should work together to solve problems, because that is how problems are solved in the real world – with small teams of intellectual people contributing their expertise. As a student, you can study at any of the five schools: Engineering, Science, Management, Architecture, and Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences.
While music and the arts may not be the first things that come to mind when thinking of MIT, you can explore various avenues in these areas through acapella groups, a musical theater guild, the Student Art Association, and more, ensuring a well-balanced academic and social experience. You can also further your interests by joining one of MIT’s 500+ student organizations.
