The laboratories at MIT that are mostly involved with research in Area III are the Research Laboratory of Electronics, the Microsystems Technology Laboratories, the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems, and the Laboratory for Electromagnetic and Electronic Systems. Several other laboratories pursue selected programs in this area including the Center for Materials Science and Engineering, the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, and Lincoln Laboratory. Draper Laboratory, formerly part of MIT, also supports several research assistants. Annual Progress Reports of these laboratories are available in the MIT libraries and in the respective laboratory document rooms.
An overview of research in the EECS Department is provided by 6.961, Introduction to Electrical Engineering Research, which is offered each fall. Area III also conducts an Open House where representative research areas are discussed and laboratory tours are arranged.
