For Current Students


Electrical Engineering and Computer Science is a large and decentralized department with a small but dedicated staff whose mission is to support the academic needs of all the department's 1500 undergraduate students and 300 MEngers. Students with questions concerning academic subjects (e.g. course notes and grades) will be best served by contacting the professor in charge of the subject (Academic Information).  For policy and curricular questions, the Departments Academic Forum, the student's academic advisor, or the Undergraduate Office staff are all good choices.

The EECS Undergraduate Office is always available to assist students with procedural information, forms, and advice. Come to 38-476 and check the Undergraduate Contacts listed in this site.

1. Introduction: What comprises the MEng Thesis?
The thesis requirement gives students an opportunity to develop and demonstrate their ability to carry out and document a reasonably comprehensive project requiring considerable initiative, creative thought, and a good deal of individual responsibility. The thesis may be a design project, an analytical paper, or experimental work of a technical nature.
Advising in EECS plays a big role for our students.
