About the Massachusetts Institute of Technology

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is an independent, privately endowed university organized into five schools (architecture and planning; engineering; humanities, arts, and social sciences; management; and science). MIT has more than 11,000 undergraduate and graduate students and 1,000 faculty members. 

The Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering at MIT conducts research in fission, fusion, nuclear security, radiation sources, detection and measurement, modeling and simulation, and materials in extreme environments. The Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems aims to hasten the development of new and transformative technologies, materials and methods that will make nuclear fission more affordable, more rapidly, securely deployable, and even safer. MIT also houses the MIT Nuclear Reactor Laboratory centered on a 6 MW MITR reactor with beam ports, automatic transfer facilities and in-core irradiation facilities.
