In the lab and in the field, MIT impacts the world through both the technology developed at the Institute and the people who learn, work, and train here. MIT's students, faculty, and staff — supported by our alumni, donors, and industry partners — are able to turn hands-on research into answers for the world's most pressing problems.

MIT is committed to solving the world’s most pressing problems, and its students and faculty are eager to do the hard — but fulfilling — work needed to reach this lofty goal. While we have a 150-plus-year commitment to global engagement, today’s MIT is far more ambitious, integrated, and influential than ever before.
