DEE – Discover Electrical Engineering


Interested in understanding the magic behind Electrical Engineering? Looking forward to meeting new friends from around the world? Excited to explore Cambridge and Boston with these new friends?

Join us in the Discover Electrical Engineering FPOP as we introduce you to basic electrical engineering skills by building a working speaker system for yourself, guide you in working directly with circuits and soldering components, and organize lab tours for you to witness demonstrations of cutting-edge research in labs across campus. We are excited to introduce you to some of the best things MIT and Boston has to offer: From beautiful beach trips, electricity shows at museums, and movie nights in Boston Commons, we'll see it all! Five days of exploration, a lifetime of memories (seriously, ask our staff!) We hope to see you this Fall as part of DiscoverEE!

Discover EE Specifics

  • Dates:  August 20 – August 25
  • Place: First-year will be housed in their assigned dormitory. The program begins, and is primarily located, in room 32-044 (Stata Center).
  • Available Spaces: 35
  • Cost: The EECS department will cover all costs for on-campus activities and food, as well as transportation to off-campus activities. For off-campus trips, students will be partially subsidized for their meals. The estimated cost for all off-campus food is roughly $50 (but probably less). DiscoverEE is looking for students who have an interest in electrical engineering, but not necessarily with any prior experience.
