2. Administration and Registration


The MEng Thesis is administered by the Undergraduate Office (ug@eecs.mit.edu).

Units and Registration: The MEng thesis requires 24 units of 6.ThM. Until the thesis is completed, students register for 12 units of thesis each graduate term and are expected to make progress on their project.  6.ThM units may be added, dropped, or adjusted until the Drop Date with approval from the Undergraduate Office.

Students must be registered for thesis in the term in which they complete the project.  Graduate students are required to take a full standard load of course units. However, if, alongside all other coursework, a thesis is completed early in the term, there is a proration system for the first few weeks of a term, as long as students have registered for the term immediately preceding.

Summer Tuition Subsidy: Graduate students who register only for thesis units (6.THM) and/or RAship (6.991) for a summer session will receive a full tuition subsidy as long as they are registered for the preceeding or subsequent term.
