The largest academic department at MIT, EECS offers a comprehensive range of degree programs, featuring expert faculty, state-of-the-art equipment and resources, and a hands-on educational philosophy that prioritizes playful, inventive experimentation. A joint venture between the Schwarzman College of Computing and the School of Engineering, EECS is grounded in three overlapping sub-units: electrical engineering (EE), computer science (CS), and artificial intelligence and decision-making (AI+D). The interdisciplinary space between those three units creates fertile ground for technological innovation and discovery, and many of our students go on to start companies, conduct groundbreaking research, and teach the next generation of computer scientists, electrical engineers, computer scientists and engineers and AI engineers.
MIT EECS does not offer a terminal master’s degree. A master’s degree is earned once you are accepted and enrolled as a doctoral candidate in the EECS Department.
