6-P: The Masters of Engineering (MEng) Program


The Masters of Engineering (MEng) Program allows electrical engineering and computer science undergraduates enrolled in the 6-1, 6-2, and 6-3 programs, to earn a bachelor's and master's degree in five to five and a half years. Undergraduates in the 6-7 program  may also participate in the MEng Program with a separate degree path. For the MEng degree, students complete an additional 90 units beyond the SB degree requirements which includes graduate coursework and a Master's thesis. EECS students may also apply to the  6-A MEng Thesis Program, an industry-focused degree that couples scholarly research with industry experiences.

MEng. student Pallavi Powale
"As an MEng student, I am concentrating in graphics and human-computer interfaces and plan to pursue the same interests in industry. 6-2 gave me a great foundation in EECS, and the MEng program has allowed me to spend time honing my skills in the subjects that I find most exciting and networking with people who share my interests."
Interview with MEng. student Katie Szeto
"My time at MIT in course VI has given me great confidence that I will be able to handle whatever problems my future career throws at me. This is because course VI taught me how to think - how to model things, how to approach problems, how to be critical and open minded at the same time, how to prioritize various competing entities, how to work with people, and the value of hard work."
Interview with MEng student Ye Wang
Since I couldn’t decide at that moment whether I should do a PhD or work in industry, and I really liked the research project I was working on and my team members, I made the decision of doing MEng. I could give myself more time to learn about computer graphics and 3D printing, while thinking about what is my next step after graduation.
