"To generate, disseminate, and preserve knowledge. And work with others to bring it to bear on the world's great challenges."
Tony Stark[src]

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, or MIT, is a private research university specialized in applied science and engineering.


"You know, it's never too early to start thinking about college. I got some pull at MIT."
Iron Man to Spider-Man[src]

Tony Stark was attending at the MIT where he befriended James Rhodes. When Stark was seventeen he successfully graduated from MIT with summa cum laude.[1]

At the age of twenty, Darren Cross graduated from MIT as valedictorian and then was employed by Pym Technologies.[2]

Also, MIT was alma-mater to Maya Hansen[3], John Raymond[4], and Erik Stevens.[5]

September Foundation

"As of this moment every student has been made an equal recipient of the inaugural September Foundation grant. As in all of your projects have just been approved and funded. No strings, no taxes, just reframe the future!"
Tony Stark[src]

Tony Stark gave a guest lecture at MIT, where he demonstrated the students his latest device, the Binarily Augmented Retro-Framing designed by Quentin Beck. The demonstration of the technology included Stark's last meeting with his mother and father. Stark then followed with a speech where he introduced the September Foundation grant and announced that every student had been made an equal recipient of it, giving them all the proper funding to move forward with their own inventions and projects.

Noticing that Pepper Potts was scheduled to give a speech to the student, Stark said his final words before stepping off stage where the MIT Liaison then attempted to get some money from Stark Industries for the faculty funding.[6] Meanwhile, Beck, who also attended the demonstration, was utterly disappointed, seeing his design being used in such an inappropriate way.[7]
