California Institute of Technology - Caltech

About

History

Founded as Throop University in 1891 in Pasadena, California, and renamed the California Institute of Technology in 1920.

Education

  • Caltech's nearly 1,000 undergraduate students can choose from 28 options (majors), spread across six academic divisions. Caltech's program not only builds students' expertise in a core area of study and research, but requires a considerable depth and exposure to basic science, humanities, math, and social science overall as the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary research, business, and society require the ability to make connections across disciplines.
  • It also supports more than 1,200 graduate students—distributed across 30 options (majors)—who are working toward MS and PhD degrees, and in special cases the degree of Engineer.

Research

Caltech scientists and engineers invent, use, and share state-of-the-art research tools, supercomputers, and advanced analytical labs, which allow them to think big and create extraordinary research programs. The tools and facilities our people have access to include

  • Premier telescopes and observatories around the globe, including the Laser-Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO), which made the first direct detection of gravitational waves
  • The Jet Propulsion Laboratory and its facilities
  • Space telescopes such as Spitzer, NuSTAR, WISE, plus IPAC, a science and data center for astronomy
  • The Large Hadron Collider near Geneva, Switzerland, and its high-energy physics experiments

Career

The Career Development Center is committed to assisting our students, postdocs and alumni with career planning, including career exploration, graduate and professional school advising and job search strategies for full-time employment, internships and related opportunities.
