About this course

Through a seamless, five-year course of study, the Master of Engineering in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (6-P) program leads directly to the simultaneous awarding of the Master of Engineering and one of the three bachelor’s degrees offered by the department. The 6-P program is intended to provide the skills and depth of knowledge in a selected field of concentration needed for advanced graduate study and for professional work, as well as the breadth and perspective essential for engineering leadership in an increasingly complex technological world. The student selects 42 units from a list of subjects approved by the Graduate Office; these subjects, considered along with the two advanced undergraduate subjects from the bachelor’s program, must include at least 36 units in an area of concentration. A further 24 units of electives are chosen from a restricted departmental list of mathematics, science, and engineering subjects.

Eligibility Criteria


All applicants must complete one test from each category SAT/ACT/TOEFL; Math Level 1 or Math Level 2 in Math SAT II Subject Test and Biology or Chemistry or Physics in Science SAT II Subject Test

International students - or domestic students who do not speak English natively - have two options for testing. The University have no preference between these options. It is your choice, and you should take the set of tests with which you feel the most comfortable (All November testing is allowed for EA consideration and January testing is allowed for RA consideration.):

Option 1: The SAT or the ACT, as well as two SAT Subject Tests: one in math (level 1 or 2), and one in science (physics, chemistry, or biology e/m).

Option 2: The TOEFL (IELTS is not accepted) as well as two SAT Subject Tests: one in math (level 1 or 2) and one in science (physics, chemistry, or biology e/m). This option is especially recommended for students who do not speak English at home or in school, or who have been speaking English for fewer than five years.

Native English speakers must take either the SAT Reasoning Test or the ACT; and two SAT Subject Tests: one in math (level 1 or 2), and one in science (physics, chemistry, or biology e/m).

All students must meet the testing requirements. You may not substitute other exams (such as IB, A-Levels, etc.) for the above testing requirements. Students from countries where the SAT and ACT are not offered for all students (such as Iran and the People's Republic of China) will be considered without a full set of required test scores on a case-by-case basis.

The University have no minimum or recommended scores for the SAT Reasoning Test, the ACT, or the SAT Subject Tests. However, minimum and recommended scores for the TOEFL are required. These minimums are in place to ensure your level of English proficiency. Because MIT offers no English as a Second Language (ESL) programs, and English is the language of MIT, all students must show that they will thrive in MIT community. The minimum TOEFL scores are Paper Based Test (PBT) - 577, recommended 600+ and Internet Based Test (iBT) - 90, recommended 100+.

Your scores must be reported to MIT officially from the testing agency; scores you list on your application and scores appearing on your school transcript will not be considered official. It is recommended to list MIT as a school to receive your scores when you take the test. If you take the January test, you must list MIT as a school to receive your scores or the University will not receive your scores in time for our review. MIT SAT and TOEFL code is 3514, and ACT code is 1858.

It is important for all students - and very important for international students - to register for tests with the same name as you have indicated on your application and MyMIT account. Your record and test scores will not be linked to the system if the names do not match.

How to Apply

Part 1: Biographical Information

Submitting the Part 1 of your application through MyMIT initiates your application process. 


This form must be submitted no later than November 1 if you're applying Early Action, or no later than January 1 if you're applying Regular Action. We prefer that you submit this form as soon as possible, so that we can get a head start on processing your application file. However, remember that there is no strategic benefit associated with or conferred by applying during either Action cycle.

Part 2: Essays, Activities, & Academics


Rather than asking you to write one long essay, the MIT application consists of several short response questions and essays designed to help us get to know you. Remember that this is not a writing test. These are the places in the application where we look for your voice - who you are, what drives you, what's important to you, what makes you tick. Be honest, be open, be authentic - this is your opportunity to connect with us. 


Letters Of Recommendation

At MIT, we require letters of recommendation from two teachers (one math/science, one humanities), plus materials from your guidance counselor (typically including your transcript, a school profile, and a letter of recommendation). 

MIT's recommendations process is online; you will need to create a separate recommendations account in addition to your MyMIT account.

Recommendations: Whom to Ask

MIT requires two letters of recommendation from teachers. One recommendation ("Evaluation A") should be from a math or science teacher, and one ("Evaluation B") should be from a humanities, social science or language teacher.

You should certainly ask a teacher who has taught you in an academic class in high school (i.e. no middle school, and no basket weaving class). Ideally, this will also be a teacher who knows you as more than just a student who does well on all the tests. We find that the best recommendations are written by teachers who know an applicant well as both a student and a person.
