The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, or MIT, is a private research university specialized in applied science and engineering.
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 students, 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. Meanwhile, Beck, who also attended the demonstration, was utterly disappointed upon seeing his design being used in such an inappropriate way.
After graduating from the United States Naval Academy, Erik Stevens attended MIT. Working on his doctoral thesis, Stevens created the Project Liberator, which involved automated combat drones that would make human troops obsolete. However, Stevens encountered interface issues that halted the development until the project was picked up by Stark Industries years later.
