Massachusetts Institute of Technology Reviews

15 reviews
In general they are demanding, you are expected to do the work to pass the class. That being said, learning is prioritized over achieving certain grades. In some of classes you have the opportunity to retake a test you didn't do well or ask for 'slack' days for an assignment you are struggling with. There is also a significant emphasis on experiential learning and most classes involved a hands -on project.

MIT has a wonderful, academic atmosphere which supports diverse teams in finding creative new approaches to existing problems in the world. From coursework, to classmates, to the resources, to the facilities, it is unparalleled!
