Master's Degrees

The master’s degree generally requires a minimum of one academic year of study, while the engineer’s degree requires two years. Admission to MIT for the master’s degree does not necessarily imply an automatic commitment by MIT beyond that level of study.

In the School of Engineering, students may be awarded the engineer’s degree. This program provides a higher level of professional competence than is required by the program leading to the master’s degree, but less emphasis is placed on creative research than in the doctoral program.

Below is a list of programs and departments that offer master-level degrees.
