MIT Theses


This collection of MIT Theses in DSpace contains selected theses and dissertations from all MIT departments. Please note that this is NOT a complete collection of MIT theses. To search all MIT theses, use Barton, MIT Libraries' catalog.

MIT's DSpace contains more than 40,000 theses completed at MIT dating as far back as the mid 1800's. Theses in this collection have been scanned by Document Services or submitted in electronic format by thesis authors. Since 2004 all new Masters and Ph.D. theses will be scanned and will be added to this collection after degrees are awarded.

If you have questions about MIT theses in DSpace, contact Document Services. See also Access & Availability Questions or About MIT Theses in DSpace.

If you are a recent MIT graduate and would like to add your thesis to the theses in DSpace, see Add Your Thesis to MIT's DSpace for instructions. All theses scanned by the MIT Libraries are scanned in black and white mode. Color content, active links, and searchable text will only be preserved in the online version of your thesis if you have given an electronic copy (PDF) to the MIT Libraries.

  • Moberg, Emily Alison (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Marine populations are increasingly subjected to changing conditions whether through harvest or through broad-scale habitat change. Historically, few models have accounted for such trends over time, and even fewer have ...
  • Talnikar, Chaitanya Anil (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Design optimization with high-fidelity turbulent flow simulations can be challenging due to noisy and expensive objective function evaluations. The noise decays slowly as computation cost increases, therefore is significant ...
  • Foo, Ming Qing (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This thesis examines two problems concerning the secure and reliable operation of the electric power grid. The first part studies the distributed operation of the electric power grid using the power flow problem, which is ...
  • Tseranidis, Stavros (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This thesis explores the use of approximation algorithms, sometimes called surrogate modelling, in the early-stage design of structures. The use of approximation models to evaluate design performance scores rapidly could ...
  • Liu, Jeffrey, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    We consider the problem of estimating individual and social value of information in routing games. We propose a Bayesian congestion game that accounts for the heterogeneity in the commuters' access to information about ...
