The EECS Department is the largest in the School of Engineering with about 700 graduate students in the doctoral program. [Application is for the doctoral program only — there is no terminal masters degree, but all PhD students earn a masters degree as they work towards PhD. A Masters of Engineering is only available for qualified MIT EECS undergraduates.]
The application website (see link below) is available on September 15, 2016 for students who wish to apply for graduate admission in September 2017. The deadline for submitting completed applications is December 15, 2016.
