加州理工学院成立于1891年,是一家全球顶级的私立理工研究型大学,共有961名本科生在册,地理位置是郊区,校园面积是124英亩。它使用基于四分之一的学术日历。加州理工学院2019年版的最佳学院排行榜是国立大学12名。它的学费和费用是52362美元(2018-19)。

加州理工大学位于加利福尼亚州的帕萨迪纳,位于洛杉矶东北约11英里。加州理工学院的社会和学术生活集中在八所学生宿舍,学校称之为“自治生活团体”。学生宿舍融合了加州理工学院令人钦佩的传统:由学生服务员提供晚餐。新生是被要求住在校园里,但是超过80%的学生四年都不会搬离。加州理工学院海狸队在南加州大学校际运动会上拥有许多NCAA III级球队。《荣誉守则》是学生生活中不可或缺的一部分,它规定“加州理工学院的任何成员不得利用加州理工学院的任何其他成员。”

除了本科学习,加州理工大学还提供了工程、生物学、化学、计算机科学、地球科学、数学和物理等顶尖的研究生课程。加州理工学院参与了大量的研究,从美国国家航空航天局、国家科学基金会和卫生和人类服务部等机构获得资助。加州理工大学保持着与另一所顶尖科技大学马萨诸塞理工学院的恶作剧传统。诸如英特尔、康柏和Hotmail等公司都是由加州理工学院的校友创立的。著名电影导演弗兰克·卡普拉也毕业于加州理工学院。

California Institute of Technology is a private institution that was founded in 1891. It has a total undergraduate enrollment of 961, its setting is suburban, and the campus size is 124 acres. It utilizes a quarter-based academic calendar. California Institute of Technology’s ranking in the 2019 edition of Best Colleges is National Universities, 12. Its tuition and fees are $52,362 (2018-19).

Caltech, which focuses on science and engineering, is located in Pasadena, California, approximately 11 miles northeast of Los Angeles. Social and academic life at Caltech centers on the eight student houses, which the school describes as “self-governing living groups.” Student houses incorporate an admired Caltech tradition: dinners served by student waiters. Only freshmen are required to live on campus, but more than 80 percent of students remain in their house for all four years. The Caltech Beavers have a number of NCAA Division III teams that compete in the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Integral to student life is the Honor Code, which dictates that “No member of the Caltech community shall take unfair advantage of any other member of the Caltech community.”

In addition to its undergraduate studies, Caltech offers top graduate programs in engineering, biology, chemistry, computer science, earth sciences, mathematics and physics. Caltech participates in a significant amount of research, receiving grants from institutions such as NASA, the National Science Foundation and the Department of Health and Human Services, among others. Caltech maintains a strong tradition of pranking with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, another top-ranked science and technology university. Companies such as Intel, Compaq and Hotmail were founded by Caltech alumni. Famous film director Frank Capra also graduated from Caltech.
