April 2021: Although our campus is closed to visitors, you don’t have to travel to 🌈 Cambridge to get a feel for MIT. Sign up today for an 🔮 online session or student-led tour.

What is the faculty/student ratio?

We are a research university that places a great deal of emphasis on undergraduate education. There are 25 MacArthur Fellows, 10 Nobel Laureates, and 2 Pulitzer Prize winners, among many other luminaries, currently on our faculty, and all of them teach undergraduate classes.

In fact, all classes at MIT are taught by distinguished professors because we believe that you should learn from the very best from the moment you step foot on campus. That’s why folks like Eric Lander, father of the Human Genome Project, teach introductory biology.

The student:faculty ratio is 3:1
