About California Institute of Technology
Caltech is small but prizes excellence and ambition. The contributions of Caltech's faculty and alumni have earned national and international recognition, including 44 Nobel Prizes. The Institute manages the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) for NASA, sending probes to explore the planets of solar system and quantify changes on home planet, 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, and cofounded and comanages LIGO, which, in 2016, observed gravitational waves for the first time.
It has one of the nation's lowest student-to-faculty ratios, with 300 professorial faculty members offering a rigorous curriculum and access to varied learning opportunities and hands-on research to approximately 1,000 undergraduates and 1,250 graduate students.
Caltech is an independent, privately supported institution with a 124-acre campus located in Pasadena, California, a vibrant and culturally rich city of 140,000 at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains that boasts sunshine year-round.
