电机工程与计算机科学(Electrical Engineering and Computer Science)
电机工程原先是麻省理工学院物理系所的科目，在公元1882年时变成独立的学位课程。电机工程系所成立于公元1902年座落于新家罗威尔大楼（Lowell Building），当时麻省理工学院还是在波士顿的科普来广场（Copley Square）附近。在公元1973秋天，系所搬移到目前的雪曼．费尔乔电机工程和电子馆。一年之后，由于在计算机科学方面的研究持续增加，本系将名称改为电机工程与计算机科学系所。集中计算机、资讯和人工智能研究的史塔塔夫妇中心目前正在兴建中，本系所未来的计算机科学、通讯和控制方面的活动将会搬迁到该处。
Electrical engineering, originally taught at MIT in the Physics Department, became an independent degree program in 1882. The Department of Electrical Engineering was formed in 1902, and occupied its new home, the Lowell Building, when MIT was still located near Copley Square in Boston. The Department dedicated its present facilities in the Sherman Fairchild Electrical Engineering and Electronics complex in fall 1973, and a year later, it recognized its growing activity in computer science by changing its name to Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The Department's activities in computer science, communications, and control moved into the architecturally unique and exciting Ray and Maria Stata Center for Computer, Information, and Intelligence Sciences in Spring 2004.
The primary mission of the Department is the education of its students. Its three undergraduate programs attract more than 30 percent of all MIT undergraduates, and its doctoral programs are highly ranked and selective. A leader in cooperative education, the Department has operated the highly successful VI-A Internship Program since 1917. It has recently established a five-year Master of Engineering program, under which students stay for a fifth year and receive simultaneously a Bachelor's degree and a Master's of Engineering degree.
During its history faculty and students of the Department have made major, lasting research contributions, some of which have opened up entire new fields of study.
