MIT has a strong entrepreneurial culture and the aggregated revenues of companies founded by MIT alumni would rank as the eleventh-largest economy in the world.[14] History[edit] Foundation and vision[edit] Rogers, a professor from the University of Virginia, wanted to establish an institution to address rapid scientific and technological advances.[19][20] He did not wish to found a professional school, but a combination with elements of both professional and liberal education,[21] proposing that: The Rogers Plan reflected the German research university model, emphasizing an independent faculty engaged in research, as well as instruction oriented around seminars and laboratories.[23][24] Early developments[edit] Curricular reforms[edit] Related:  Sjoerd Arlman - van BCG naar Gemeente Amsterdam - revolving doorWikipedia AWiki,pdf&text

Initially, it offered only a degree in mechanical engineering. By 1901, its curriculum had expanded to include electrical, civil, and chemical engineering. In 1948, the school changed its name to reflect its evolution from a trade school to a larger and more capable technical institute and research university. Today, Georgia Tech is organized into six colleges and contains about 31 departments/units, with emphasis on science and technology. History[edit] Establishment[edit] Atlanta during the Civil War (c. 1864) The idea of a technology school in Georgia was introduced in 1865 during the Reconstruction period. In 1882, the Georgia State Legislature authorized a committee, led by Harris, to visit the Northeast to see firsthand how technology schools worked. Early years[edit] On October 20, 1905, U.S.

While Oxford has no known date of foundation, there is evidence of teaching as far back as 1096,[1] making it the oldest university in the English-speaking world, and the world's second-oldest surviving university.[1][6] It grew rapidly from 1167 when Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris.[1] After disputes between students and Oxford townsfolk in 1209, some academics fled northeast to Cambridge, where they established what became the University of Cambridge.[7] The two "ancient universities" are frequently jointly referred to as "Oxbridge". Oxford is the home of several notable scholarships, including the Clarendon Scholarship which was launched in 2001[10] and the Rhodes Scholarship which has brought graduate students to read at the university for more than a century.[11] History[edit] Founding[edit]

Tufts University Tufts College was founded in 1852 by Christian Universalists who worked for years to open a non-sectarian institution of higher learning.[6] Charles Tufts donated the land for the campus on Walnut Hill, the highest point in Medford, saying that he wanted to set a "light on the hill." The name was changed to Tufts University in 1954, although the corporate name remains "the Trustees of Tufts College." For more than a century, Tufts was a small New England liberal arts college. The French-American nutritionist Jean Mayer became president of Tufts in the late 1970s and, through a series of rapid acquisitions, transformed the school into an internationally renowned research university.[7] It is known as both a Little Ivy and a New Ivy and consistently ranks among the nation's top schools.
