Examples of Possible Subject Selections and Roadmaps

Some examples of possible course selections for 10-eng students

  • The class lists are not in any implied chronological order.
  • These examples use only the suggested courses from the concentration lists, but students may also propose any combination of these and/or other engineering courses at MIT that fit the concentration topic to total 4 subjects.
  • Examples below do not use any graduate level subject alternatives.
  • None of these examples requested permission to go beyond the 45-unit limit for foundational concepts.
