Overview

Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is a private educational institution in Cambridge Massachusetts. Established in 1861, this private land-grant research university is informally known as Boston Tech and is a member of the Association of American Universities. MIT also adopts a European polytechnic university model. The university ranks high among institutions of higher learning worldwide.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology Key Statistics

MIT’s educational structure comprises five schools. These five schools are the School of Architecture Planning, the School of Engineering, the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, and the School of Science. The university also offers over 40 graduate and undergraduate degrees across multiple fields of study, including computer science, engineering, architecture, and mathematics.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology is composed of more than 11,000 students, including over 4,500 undergraduates and nearly 7,000 postgraduates. They are being supervised by a 1,074-strong faculty, which are spread across its 166-acre campus. The MIT campus is also near public amenities, such as the Kendall/MIT MBTA Red Line station, Massachusetts Avenue, and Kendall Square.

Other Massachusetts Institute of Technology key statistics are its academic and non-academic facilities that include student dormitories, the MIT Museum, and the List Visual Arts Center. It also has a comprehensive library system, which has five subject libraries. These five subject libraries include Rotch for Arts and Architecture, Lewis for Music, and Hayden for Humanities and Science.

MIT is also known for its remarkable roster of past and present faculty and alumni that include 97 Nobel laureates, 58 National Medal of Science recipients, 8 Fields Medalists, 29 National Medals of Technology and Innovation recipients, and 26 Turing Award winners.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology Research

MIT has a consistently high research performance. Its research teams receive average grant aid of $43,248 annually from over 13,000 public and private donors and sponsors.

Its top three research fields are computer science, biology, and artificial intelligence. MIT researchers have also attended international research conferences and symposiums, such as CVPR: Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, SIGCOMM: ACM Special Interest Group on Data Communication, and NeurIPS: Neural Information Processing Systems.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s most cited research publication is Cormen et al.’s (1990) “Introduction to Algorithms,” which has 59,482 citations. Meanwhile, MIT’s second most popular output is Hanahan and Weinberg's (2011) “Hallmarks of cancer: The next generation,” which was published in The Cell and cited 51,849 times.

On the other hand, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s third most popular research publication is Sutton and Barto's (1988) “Reinforcement Learning: An Introduction.” This publication, which highlights the importance of reinforcement learning in maximizing total reward, was cited by students and research professionals worldwide 43,744 times.

Other Massachusetts Institute of Technology research facts and figures are its dynamic research facilities that include research centers and laboratories. These research centers and facilities are the MIT-Woods Hole Oceanography/Applied Science Ocean Science and Engineering, Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, and the MIT Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research. MIT researchers also collaborate with public and private institutions, such as the Massachusetts Green High-Performance Computing Center, the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research, and the Charles Stark Draper Laboratory.
