    Why MIT?

    The planning department is a combination of a department large enough to support a great range and depth of knowledge, and a technologically-sophisticated student base willing to apply new technologies to longstanding planning issues. I also benefit greatly from the close collaboration between planning, architecture, transportation, real estate and environment programs within the Institute.
