6-1: Electrical Science and Engineering

    Starting in Fall 2024, our 6-2 Electrical Engineering and Computer Science degree program will be renamed and renumbered as 6-5 Electrical Engineering with Computing. Along with that change, we will retire the existing 6-1 Electrical Science and Engineering degree program, so that we end up with a single EE degree program. You can read our FAQ here.

    This major focuses on the study of circuits and devices, materials and nanotechnology, communications, control and signal processing, applied physics, and biological applications.


    6-1 students who are double majoring in 8-flex may make the following substitutions to their 6-1 degree program:

    • 8.03 in place of the intro subject
    • 8.04 in place of 6.004
    • 8.05 or 8.051 as one of their header subjects

    If you are a 6-1 student double majoring in 8-flex, please contact the EECS Undergraduate Office for help in processing these substitutions.
