Why Caltech

Break Through discoveries happen at Caltech because this is a different kind of university—one where a small community of remarkable scientists, engineers, and students pursue imaginative ideas wherever they lead. Our researchers envisioned quarks, discovered quasars, launched the field of molecular biology, and detected gravitational waves. They are already working on what’s next. Caltech is proof that, with the right resources and environment, we can change the world—together.
