Many of our lecturers come directly from industry. They'll teach you skills you need in the workplace so you'll graduate with the confidence to step directly from study into employment.

Our class sizes are small, so you will get more one-on-one time with your lecturer, and they will even know you by name.

At MIT we celebrate and draw upon our diversity. People from all walks of life flourish at MIT, so whether you live down the road or are an international student, we have a place for you.
