M.I.T.

The campus of this world renowned science and technology institution extends more than a mile along the Charles River Basin. The school was founded by William Barton Rogers in 1861, with the founding philosophy of “learning by doing.” During WWII, the school served as a federally funded research and development center. In 1916, George Eastman donated the funds to build a new campus on the Cambridge side of the Charles River.

The original central group of interconnecting buildings was dedicated in 1916; additional landmark buildings were designed by leading architects. The Stata Center was designed by Frank Gehry, Simmons Hall was designed by Steven Holl, and Building 46 by Charles Correa. Well-known works of art are placed throughout the campus. MIT also has the second largest university-based nuclear reactor, a pressurized wind tunnel, a towing tank for testing ocean structure designs, and a low-emission cogeneration plant.
