Undergraduate Programs

SHARE:

World-renowned for both rigor and innovation, EECS is the largest undergraduate program at MIT. Our flexible curriculum and intensive, hands-on coursework gives students a holistic view of the field, an understanding of how to solve problems, and a focus on modeling and abstraction that prepares them for success in a wide range of industries, from software to bioengineering.

Taught by world class faculty, EECS students explore subjects critical to advancement in today’s high-tech society — from mathematical computer theory to circuit design and electronics, control and communication theory, artificial intelligence, and robotics. Starting salaries for students with bachelor’s degrees average above $90,000.

Check out the four undergraduate degree programs offered (6-1, 6-2,  6-3, 6-7) and the two master of engineering degree options available to EECS undergraduates:  6-A or 6-P.  All six degree programs are highlighted below.

Students may also engage in independent study or research for academic credit, with faculty supervision. For more information and necessary paperwork, visit the Course VI Undergraduate Office, 38-476.
