The MIT School of Engineering believes in the future.
Everything is changing, and the people making these changes are engineers: we make things, and we make things better. Our collective challenges are steep, and they are global. Improved systems and tools for generating energy, protecting our fragile environment, and keeping our bodies healthy have the potential to improve the lived experience of people from all corners of the planet.
Narrow approaches make for small solutions. MIT''s strategy for addressing global challenges is to address them on their own terms. By welcoming the widest range of knowledge, experience, and expertise under a single intellectual roof, the faculty, researchers, and graduate students in our School of Engineering attack problems – and solve them – on the grandest scale.
