Student Groups


Student groups play a big role in the life of both graduate and undergraduate students.  Visit any one of these groups and find out how you can become involved.

EECS Graduate Student Association


Graduate Women (GW6)



MIT Solar Electric Vehicle Team

THRIVE  Empowering, supporting, and representing the diverse graduate student community

Undergraduate Student Advisory Group in EECS (USAGE)

Women in EECS for undergraduate women interested in electrical engineering or computer science.


Student Groups: EECS GSA
The EECS GSA is a group designed to bring graduate students in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology out of the many corners of campus in which we sit to share experiences, strengthen our communication with faculty and administration, and improve student life within the department.

Meet this year's Undergraduate Student Advisory Group!
Student Groups: EECS REFs
EECS REFS serve as a resource for EECS graduate students in managing stress and conflict, acting as coaches/mediators, liaisons, and intermediaries. As coaches and mediators, they help analyze issues and situations brought forth by students and identify appropriate courses of action. 
Student Groups: Eta Kappa Nu (HKN)
At MIT, HKN is primarily interested in improving course VI by providing students with many helpful resources. These resources include the Underground guide to course VI and VI-A, a tutoring program, the Big Sib program, and social events.
Student Groups: Course 6 Graduate Women
GW6 is a student group for female graduate students of course 6 EECS at MIT. We organize activities to develop mentorships, friendships and to have fun!
Student Groups: MIT IEEE/ACM Club
MIT ACM/IEEE represents the student branch for two international organizations, the Association for Computing Machinery and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. MIT ACM/IEEE plans different events and activities for the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) Department at MIT, better known as Course VI. These activities include research panels and discussions, group trips (e.g. Museum of Science, IMAX), Faculty Dinners for students, study breaks, and other exciting events.
Student Groups: MIT Solar Electric Vehicle Team
The MIT Solar Electric Vehicle Team sets its goals beyond just winning races. The team is dedicated to promoting alternatively powered vehicles. Members participate in seminars, lectures, museum displays, conferences dedicated to alternative energy, and numerous Earth Day and ecological fairs.
