Massachusetts Institute Of Technology International Student Insurance

General Information

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, was established in 1861. It was chartered by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts two days before the first shots of the U.S. Civil War, and the school opened its doors to students in Boston in 1865. The school was informally known as “Boston Tech” until it relocated to its current location in 1916. It was founded to meet the educational and professional requirements of the increasing industrialization of the United States and focused primarily on applied science and engineering. During the first half of the 20th century, it evolved into an internationally recognized powerhouse of scientific and technical research. Today, MIT enrolls more than 11,000 students and counting each year. The school colors are cardinal red and silver gray, and its athletic nickname is the Engineers.

Academic Offerings

MIT offers undergraduate and graduate degrees across its six academic divisions: the School of Architecture and Planning; the School of Engineering; the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences; the Sloan School of Management; the School of Science; and the MIT Schwarzman College of Computing. The university is best known for its STEM-field education, but its programs in subjects like economics, political science, urban studies, linguistics, and philosophy are also highly regarded. 

Research Facilities

The school is known for its high level of research activity. University facilities include a nuclear reactor, a computation center, a geophysical observatory, an astrophysical observatory, a particle accelerator, several wind tunnels, and an artificial intelligence laboratory. More than 85% of undergraduates participate in some kind of faculty-led research project. Its research has received funding from organizations like the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Defense, the National Science Foundation, and NASA.

On Campus

Points of interest on campus include the MIT Museum, founded in 1971 and exhibiting collections related to holography, technology, artificial intelligence, maritime history, and the history of the school; five subject libraries specializing in engineering, economics, humanities and science, music, and arts and architecture; and the List Visual Arts Center, which features rotating artwork exhibitions.

Notable Alumni

Notable MIT alumni include Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin; former Federal Reserve Bank chairman Ben Bernanke; Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman; Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman; architect I.M. Pei; and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
