High Enrolment in MIT computer science

At MIT, there has been an interest in computer science programs, with high enrollment from students of all disciplines, starting from economics to life sciences and they are eager to learn how computational techniques and methodologies can be used and applied within their primary field. One of the core components of the college mission is to educate students who are fluent in both the language of computing and that of other disciplines. The prime goals of the Common Ground are to infuse computing education throughout MIT in a coordinated manner, as well as to serve as a platform for multi-departmental collaborations. All classes and curricula developed through the Common Ground are intended to be created and offered jointly by multiple academic departments to meet common needs.

The Common Ground for Computing Education which was launched on 2020 was created through the MIT Stephen A. Schwarzman College of Computing to meet the growing need for enhanced curricula that connect computer science and artificial intelligence with different domains. In order to advance this mission, the Common Ground is bringing experts across MIT together and facilitating collaborations among multiple departments to develop new classes and approaches that blend computing topics with other disciplines.
