Link to MEng Application
The MEng or Masters of Engineering Program (6-P) enables students to earn Course 6 bachelor's and master's degrees simultaneously or consecutively over a period of five or five and a half years. Research for the master's thesis is completed on campus.
Available only to MIT undergraduates in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, the EECS Master of Engineering Program (MEng) efficiently consolidates the work of a four-year bachelor's and a two-year master's degree into a total of ten or eleven semesters, preparing students for both advanced technical, entrepreneurial, consulting, and other positions - as well as for doctoral programs.
More than 60 percent of EECS undergraduates apply for this program, and nearly half enter and complete it.
To complete the MEng, students must meet all bachelor's degree requirements and complete an additional 90 credit units -- including graduate coursework and mostly significantly, a graduate research thesis. Students are encouraged to start fulfilling the MEng requirements for both subjects and the thesis as undergraduates.
The 6-1, 6-2, and 6-3 MEng allows students to complete a three-subject concentration in one of the following 12 fields:
- Artificial Intelligence
- Computer Systems
- Graphics and Human-Computer Interfaces
- Materials, Devices, and Nanotechnology
- Numerical Methods
- Applied Physics
- Signals and Systems
Theoretical Computer Science
EECS students may apply to the 6-A MEng Thesis Program, an industry-focused variation on MEng that couples scholarly research with practical, hands-on engineering experience gained through internships at leading companies throughout the United States and internationally.
Students outside MIT's Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science who are interested in graduate-level work should visit the department's Graduate Programs page for more information.
