An Overview of Project Athena — A Model for Networked Computing. Project Athena is many things at MIT — a tool for undergraduate teaching, a development platform for software applications, a gateway to other networks, and a computing means for everything from word‐processing to e‐mail to games. Sometimes referred to simply as Athena, it has grown to become a means upon which students, faculty, and staff rely for both sophisticated and everyday computing.
