When Gary Seven infiltrated the San Lobos Atomic Research Facility in 1968, his false credentials claimed he had studied (or taught) at MIT. (TOS - Star Trek: Assignment: Earth comic: "Brighter Than a Thousand Suns")
As an educator at MIT, Cochrane continued development on a prototype warp engine up until the onslaught of World War III. Keeping his notes in his laptop, Cochrane left MIT on foot with a mysterious man named Michael (in actuality, the Vulcan Mestral) and headed to Bozeman, Montana. (ENT short story: "Mestral")
- Stock footage of MIT was seen briefly in TOS episode: "Bread and Circuses", although it represented a building on Magna Roma.
