MIT - private University wikipedia
MIT is often cited as among the world's top universities.[10][11][12][13] As of 2014[update], 81 Nobel laureates, 52 National Medal of Science recipients, 45 Rhodes Scholars, 38 MacArthur Fellows, and 2 Fields Medalists have been affiliated with MIT. 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.

Charles Stark Draper Laboratory Draper Laboratory is an American not-for-profit research and development organization, headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts; its official name is "The Charles Stark Draper Laboratory, Inc".[5] The laboratory specializes in the design, development, and deployment of advanced technology solutions to problems in national security, space exploration, health care and energy. The laboratory was founded in 1932 by Charles Stark Draper at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to develop aeronautical instrumentation, and came to be called the "MIT Instrumentation Laboratory".[6] It was renamed for its founder in 1970 and separated from MIT in 1973 to become an independent, non-profit organization.[1][6][7] History[edit] The display and keyboard (DSKY) interface of the Apollo Guidance Computer mounted on the control panel of the Command Module, with the Flight Director Attitude Indicator (FDAI) above.

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.

SENS Research Foundation Goals[edit] The foundation's stated goal is to "transform the way the world researches and treats age-related disease."[citation needed] It advocates the 'SENS' approach, which it describes as "the repair of living cells and extracellular material in situ," an approach which it contrasts with geriatric medicine's focus on specific diseases and infirmities, and biogerontology's focus on intervention in metabolic processes.[citation needed] It funds research and uses outreach and education in order to expedite the various regenerative medicine research programs that go together to make the SENS project.[citation needed] Research[edit] In addition to research undertaken in-house at the Research Center in Mountain View, SRF has also taken part in and/or selectively funded extramural research at various other institutions, including Yale University, Harvard University, Cambridge University, University of Texas, Rice University and University of Arizona.[1] Outreach and education[edit]

Topinstituut: ‘prestigeprojectje’ in te kleine stad | Folia Web Wetenschap30 september 2013 15:03 Amsterdam is absoluut niet de stad voor een topinstituut ‘for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions.’ Dat stelt wetenschapsjournalist en oud-hoofdredacteur van Folia Marcel Hulspas in een column op website The Post Online. De stad is er te klein voor, te goed georganiseerd en te hoog opgeleid. ‘De problemen waar dat instituut zich op moet richten komen in Amsterdam niet, voor, zullen daar ook nooit voorkomen, en de oplossingen, die dat instituut gaat bedenken, zijn voor Amsterdam niet relevant. Onlangs werd duidelijk dat Amsterdam een nieuw topinstituut krijgt: een samenwerking van de universiteit van Wageningen en de TU Delft, met hulp van het Amerikaanse MIT. Een ‘volstrekt belachelijke keuze,’ stelt Hulspas. ‘De stad groeit niet maar krimpt. Daar komt volgens Hulspas nog eens bij dat het ‘prestigeprojectje’ van de TU Delft en de universiteit van Wageningen helemaal niet zo interessant is voor de stad. ‘Wat gaan de Amerikanen doen?

California Institute of Technology The California Institute of Technology (or Caltech)[5] is a private research university located in Pasadena, California, United States. Caltech has six academic divisions with strong emphasis on science and engineering. Its 124-acre (50 ha) primary campus is located approximately 11 mi (18 km) northeast of downtown Los Angeles. Despite its small size, 32 Caltech alumni and faculty have won a total of 33 Nobel Prizes (Linus Pauling being the only individual in history to win two unshared prizes) and 70 have won the United States National Medal of Science or Technology.[3] There are 112 faculty members who have been elected to the National Academies. Caltech announced its ninth president, Thomas F. History[edit] Throop College[edit] Throop Polytechnic Institute, Pasadena, Calif, 1908, on its original campus at downtown Pasadena.

Mitra (Vedic) This article is about the Vedic deity Mitra. For other divinities with similar names, see Mitra. Indic Mitra should not be confused with the Zoroastrian divinity Mithra (Miθra). The Indo-Iranian common noun *mitra means "(that which) causes [-tra] to bind [mi-]", hence Sanskrit mitram, "covenant, contract, oath",[4] the protection of which is Mitra's role in both the Rigveda and in the Mitanni treaty. In the Rigveda, the oldest of the Vedic texts, Mitra is mostly indistinguishable from Varuna, together with whom Mitra forms a dvandva pair Mitra-Varuna,[note 2] and in which Mitra-Varuna has essentially the same characteristics as Varuna alone.[1][5][6] Varuna is not only the greater of the two, but also — according to RV 2.12 — the second-greatest of the RigVedic gods after Indra.[1]:134 Rigvedic hymns to Mitra-Varuna include RV 1.136, 137, 151-153, RV 5.62-72, RV 6.67, RV 7.60-66, RV 8.25 and RV 10.132.
