Guide to Graduate Study in Area I: Circuits

Welcome

This guide is primarily written for entering graduate students who have come from undergraduate universities other than MIT, and who intend eventually to obtain a PhD at MIT. It is intended as a planning guide for the first two years, which is the normal period for obtaining the masters degree and completing the departmental Technical Qualifying Evaluation (TQE).

Research in Circuits emphasizes electronic circuits and systems, microprocessor based control, and digital and analog signal processing. Design and practical implementation are emphasized. More than forty faculty members have a primary or secondary interest in this area, and are generally located in the Research Laboratory of Electronics, RLE, Microsystems Technology Laboratories, MTL, the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, CSAIL, the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems, LIDS, the Center for Materials Science and Engineering and the Laboratory for Electromagnetic and Electronic Systems, LEES.
