|6.UAR Seminar in Undergraduate Advanced Research, 12, CI-M; 6.UR|
|1. Two mathematics subjects (also satisfies REST requirement):
(a) Either 18.03 or 18.06 (alternatively 18.700)
(b) Either 6.041 (alternatively 18.440) or 6.042J. Students in Course 6-1 must select 6.041 (or 18.440); students in Course 6-3 must select 6.042J.
|2. One department laboratory:
One subject selected from the undergraduate laboratory subjects 6.035, 6.101, 6.111, 6.115, 6.123, 6.129, 6.131, 6.141, 6.142, 6.152, 6.161, 6.163, 6.170, 6.172, 6.182, or 6.813; students in Course 6-3 must select a CS laboratory subject from 6.035, 6.141, 6.170, 6.172, or 6.813. Students in Course 6-1 or 6-2 who take both 6.021J and 6.022J may use 6.022J to satisfy the department laboratory requirement.
|3. Three/four foundation subjects:
(a) Students in Course 6-1 must take three subjects from the EE foundation list: 6.002, 6.003, 6.004, 6.007.
(b) Students in Course 6-3 must take the three subjects in the CS foundation list: 6.004, 6.005, 6.006.
(c) Students in Course 6-2 must take four subjects from the EECS foundation list (6.002–6.007), with two chosen from the EE foundation list and two from the CS foundation list (6.004 may be counted under either EE or CS).
|4. Three header subjects:
(a) Students in Course 6-1 must take three subjects from the EE header list: 6.011, 6.012, 6.013, 6.021J.
(b) Students in Course 6-3 must take the three subjects in the CS header list: 6.033, 6.034, 6.046J.
(c) Students in Course 6-2 must take three subjects from the EECS header list (6.011, 6.012, 6.013, 6.021J, 6.033, 6.034, 6.046J), with at least one chosen from the EE header list and at least one from the CS header list.
|5. Two subjects from a departmental list of advanced undergraduate subjects.|
|To complete the required Communication-Intensive subjects in the major, students must take one of the following CI-M subjects as a restricted elective in categories 2 or 4 above by the end of the third year: 6.021J, 6.025J, 6.033, 6.101, 6.111, 6.115, 6.129J, 6.131, 6.141J, 6.152J, 6.161, 6.163, 6.182, or 6.805. 6.UAT plus 6.UAP or 6.UAR typically constitutes the second CI-M. Students may also take 6.UAT plus a second CI-M undergraduate laboratory subject (6.101, 6.111, 6.115, 6.131, 6.141J, 6.152J, 6.161, 6.163, 6.182) to fulfill the CI-M component of the Communication Requirement.|
|Departmental Program Units That Also Satisfy the GIRs||(36)|
|Total Units Beyond the GIRs Required for SB Degree||180–192|
|No subject can be counted both as part of the 17-subject GIRs and as part of the 180–192 units required beyond the GIRs. Every subject in the student's departmental program will count toward one or the other, but not both.|
|*Alternate prerequisites are listed in the subject descriptions.|
