In this section we have provided a collection of Engineering courses and resources from across MIT. Some are materials that were used to teach MIT undergraduates, while others were designed specifically for high school students.

MIT is known around the world for its stellar engineering departments. The School of Engineering is comprised of eight distinct departments: Aeronautics and Astronautics, Biological Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Material Science and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Nuclear Science and Engineering.

The resources listed below mostly are mostly within the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering departments.

Introductory MIT Courses

The following courses and resources have been selected to help you explore different types of engineering at MIT.

The first two courses listed below, Introduction to Computer Science and Programming (6.00SC) and Introduction to Electrical Engineering and Computer Science I (6.01SC) are in our OCW Scholar format. OCW Scholar courses are designed for study at your own pace. They contain substantially more material than typical OCW courses, blending new content with existing material used in MIT classes.

High School Courses Developed by MIT Students

These courses were offered through the High School Studies Program (HSSP), a project of the MIT Educational Studies Program. HSSP offers non-credit enrichment courses to 7th-12th grade students on weekends at MIT.
