As the largest department at MIT, Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (EECS) is everywhere. Each year, EECS prepares over 300 graduate and undergraduate students each year to become leaders in diverse career fields such as academia, biomedical technology, finance, consulting, law, nanotechnology and more. MIT EECS consistently ranks top by the U.S. News and World Reports and is known globally for its world-class faculty creating the best possible education, which is based on their innovative and award winning research.
EECS’ nearly 130 faculty find their research homes in four major affiliate labs: the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS), the Microsystems and Technology Laboratories (MTL) and the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE). The nature of interdisciplinary and collaborative thinking demonstrated by EECS faculty members cuts across these labs, reaching across MIT and into industry and academia worldwide.
