    6A Program


    The 6A Program helps MIT EECS students to do impactful full-time internships in industry and government labs. Many of the students in the 6A program are interested in pursuing their M.Eng. degree, and the program allows them to use the work done at the company during the M.Eng. year towards their MEng thesis.

    More than 2,500 Course 6 students have gone through the program over the years, including Amar Bose (founder of Bose Corporation), Cecil Green (founder of Texas Instruments), Andrew Viterbi (founder of Qualcomm), Ray Stata (founder of Analog Devices), Thuan Pham (Uber CTO), Lisa Su (CEO of AMD) and many others.
