The school has an alumni community of about 9700 graduates, many of whom have made important contributions to their fields and received international recognition for their work.
Notable alumni include Pritzker Prize winner I.M. Pei (AR'40), a leader in modern architecture; urban thinker Kevin Lynch (CP'47), author of the groundbreaking book The Image of the City, among many others; and inventor Saul Griffith (SM’01, PhD’04) winner of a ‘Genius Grant’ from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, which called him a ‘prodigy of invention in service of the world community’.
Alumni remain connected to MIT both through their home departments and through MIT's Alumni and Alumnae Association. Contact the appropriate division or the Alumni Association for information about your class or how to get involved.
