2020/2021 Membership Information

The MIT EECS Alliance connects MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (EECS) with innovative organizations and companies globally.

 

Through the MIT EECS Alliance, our Department aims to closely work with Industry to achieve four important goals:

  • Help create a pipeline of new engineers and scientists ready to "hit the ground running" and solve industry's most pressing challenges and problems. 
  • Help shape a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive future for our industry members.
  • Facilitate seamless transitions between the world of MIT and the world of industry.
  • Open our students' eyes to the diverse career paths and exciting opportunities available in EE, CS, and AI & D.

The MIT EECS Alliance is recruiting industry members at two levels:
