THE CALIFORNIA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

imgcalt THE CALIFORNIA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
Established 1891
Students 2231

Undergraduates : 978
Postgraduates : 1253

President : Jean - Lou CHAMEAU Motto : "The Truth Shall Make You FREE !  
Academic staff 294 professorial faculty
1207 other faculty

Caltech has six academic divisions with strong emphases on science and engineering. Its 124-acre (50 ha) primary campus is located approximately 11 mi (18 km) northeast of downtown Los Angeles.

Caltech was elected to the Association of American Universities, and the antecedents of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which Caltech continues to manage and operate, were established between 1936 and 1943 under Theodore von Kármán.
First year students are required to live on campus and 95% of undergraduates remain in the on-campus house system. Although Caltech has a strong tradition of practical jokes and pranks, student life is governed by an honor code which allows faculty to assign take-home examinations.

 

 

In fall 2008, the freshman class was 42% female, a record for Caltech's undergraduate enrollment. In the same year, the Institute concluded a six-year long fund-raising campaign

The campaign raised more than $1.4 billion from about 16,000 donors. Nearly half of the funds went into the support of Caltech programs and projects.

Since 2000, the Einstein Papers Project has been located at Caltech. The project was established in 1986 to assemble, preserve, translate, and publish papers selected from the literary estate of Albert Einstein and from other collections.

The mission of the California Institute of Technology is to expand human knowledge and benefit society through research integrated with education.
The California Institute of Technology (commonly referred to as Caltech) is a private research university located in Pasadena, California, United States.
Although founded as a preparatory and vocational school by Amos G. Throop in 1891, the college attracted influential scientists such as George Ellery HaleArthur Amos Noyes, and Robert Andrews Millikan in the early 20th century. The vocational and preparatory schools were disbanded and spun off in 1910, and the college assumed its present name in 1921. In 1934,
Despite its small size, 31 Caltech alumni and faculty have won the Nobel Prize and 66 have won the United States National Medal of Science orTechnology.There are 110 faculty members who have been elected to the National Academies. In addition, numerous faculty members are associated with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute as well as NASA. Caltech managed $332 million in sponsored research and $1.77 billion for its endowment in 2011. Caltech was ranked first in the 2012–2013 Times Higher Education World University Rankings for the second year running, as well as ranking first in Engineering & Technology and Physical Sciences.It also has a long standing rivalry with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

* Knowledge attained through Study or Practice
* Knowledge covering general truths about the operation of general Laws , especially obtained and tested through Scientific Methods and concerned with the Physical World .

Other Definitions :
1. A branch of Knowledge or Study dealing with a body of facts or truths systematically arranged and showing the operation of general Laws : The Mathematical Sciences
2. Systematic Knowledge of the Physical and Material World gained through observation and Experimentation
3. Any of the branches of Natural and Physical Science
4. Systematized knowledge in general
5. Knowledge as of Facts or Principles ; Knowledge gained by Systematic Study
6. A particular branch of Knowledge
7. Skill, especially reflecting a precise application of facts or principles

The Definitions above refer to PURE SCIENCE . And APPLIED SCIENCE is the application of Research to Human Needs .

AREOLOGY

Since The Planet MARS will be one of NASA's Future Missions its good to know something about AEROLOGY, The Study of Planet MARS.The Word "AREO " is derived from the Greek God ARES, and Logos MEANS WORD . Its the Scientific Study of the Surface, Crust and Interior of The Planet MARS . It emphasizes the Composition, Structure, History and Physical processes that shape the Planet. It is fully analogous to the terrestrial Geology. The term incorporates aspects of Geophysics, Geochemistry, Mineralogy, Geodesy and Cartography
