6-A students use their final six-month work assignment to do their thesis research. This is an MEng thesis registered for as 6.ThM and subject to MEng. thesis policies, not those for the SM or PhD theses. 6-A students must find an MIT supervisor before their graduate 6-A assignment begins, and settle proprietary issues before they begin work on their thesis project. Students should make every effort to arrange their thesis project, find a supervisor and submit a proposal and agreement letter in the spring of their senior year. If difficulties are encountered, seek assistance from the 6-A staff and company faculty advisor.
