Dear EECS Community:

EECS leadership is tracking the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak carefully with frequent discussions. We are in close contact with Institute leadership and our medical professionals, and we are monitoring the decisions made by our peer universities. Our goal is to protect the health and well-being of our community without unduly disrupting the education, research, and work of our students, faculty, and staff. 

Given the constantly evolving situation, we will be providing regular updates on our policies and guidelines on this website.

EDUCATION UPDATES:

MEETINGS AND EVENTS:

  • Faculty lunches: We  now host faculty meetings via Zoom. Faculty members have received an email from the department leadership with Zoom-related information. 
  • All meetings and events: All MIT business should be done remotely, unless there is no other alternative. Public health guidelines emphasize that minimizing person-to-person interactions is critical to limiting the spread of the virus. To be clear, any MIT meeting — research, academic, or administrative — that can be done remotely must be done remotely.
