About The Institute

Caltech

Caltech is a world-renowned science and engineering institute that nurtures some of the world's brightest minds and most innovative tools to address fundamental scientific questions and pressing societal challenges. The Institute was founded in September 1891 by Pasadenian Philanthropist Amos Throop in the rented Wooster Block building in Pasadena. The first director of the Mount Wilson Observatory, Hale became a member of Throop's board of trustees in 1907 and began molding the school into a first-class institution for engineering and scientific research and education. By 1921, Hale had been joined by chemist Arthur A. Noyes and physicist Robert A. Millikan. These three men set the school, which by then had been renamed the California Institute of Technology, firmly on its new course.

Present-day Caltech is an independent, privately supported institution with a 124-acre campus located in Pasadena, California. The Institute manages JPL for NASA, sending probes to explore the planets of our solar system and quantify changes on our home planet. Caltech also owns and operates large-scale research facilities such as the Seismological Laboratory and a global network of astronomical observatories, including the Palomar and W. M. Keck Observatories, co-founded and co-managed by LIGO. The mission of the California Institute of Technology is to expand human knowledge and benefit society through research integrated with education. We investigate the most challenging, fundamental problems in science and technology in a singularly collegial, interdisciplinary atmosphere while educating outstanding students to become creative members of society.
