Why Caltech?

Why is easy: You can research with Nobel Prize winners, live in L.A., and see what happens when your curiosity is cultivated. But why not is just as important—because before you get in, you should know what you’re getting into.

Visit & Connect

Our one-hour Techer Talks give you a chance to meet a student and ask questions virtually. (We're Caltech. Of course you can do this online.) But after a two-year break, we're doing in-person tours again. It's the best way to see what we're about.

Student Blog

The best boba, the worst classes: Hear it from Techers, uncensored, in these blogs. Read about everything from researching in the Galapagos to what happens here on the weekend (more than studying, we promise).
