Course 6-1: Electrical Science and Engineering (Note: Old Curriculum)


lab for 6.111 Introductory Digital Systems Laboratory.

The new 6-1 curriculum may be selected by students in the classes of 2017, 2018, and 2019, and must be selected by the class of 2020 and beyond.

Electrical Science and Engineering (6-1) majors  study circuits and devices, materials and nanotechnology, communications, control and signal processing, and applied physics.

Electrical Science and Engineering (VI-1) majors must complete the General Institute Requirements, the Communication Requirement, and the departmental requirements as they appear in the 6-1 Degree chart below.

This program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,

6-1 Interview with Kelly Ran
Interview with 6-1 student Kelly Ran.
6.01 Introduction to EECS 1
software engineering - feedback and control - circuits - probability and planning
6.02 Introduction to EECS II (Digital Communication Systems)
6.02: Explores communication signals, systems and networks. Substantial laboratory experiments illustrate the role of abstraction and modularity in engineering design. Students gain practical experience in building reliable systems using imperfect components; selecting appropriate design metrics; choosing effective representations for information; and evaluating tradeoffs in complex systems.
6.115 Microcomputer Project Laboratory
Introduces the analysis and design of embedded systems. Microcontrollers provide adaptation, flexibility, and real-time control. Includes a sequence of assigned projects, followed by a final project of the student's choice, emphasizing creativity and uniqueness. Final project may be expanded to satisfy a 6.UAP project. 12 Engineering Design Points.  S. B. Leeb
