Any registered course VI junior in good standing may apply to the VI-A M.Eng Thesis Program. Students must be committed to the completion of the work assignments and of the M.Eng degree with an industry-based thesis.
Students who are interested in joining VI-A must file a formal application, resume, letter of recommendation, grade report or unofficial transcript, and interview preference list with the VI-A Office to be considered for the VI-A M.Eng Thesis Program. Appropriate documents and forms are available using the links below.
The VI-A office forwards student applications to VI-A companies, based on the information provided on students’ interview preference lists. VI-A companies preview the applications and select the students they wish to interview. Company representatives visit MIT in the fall to interview prospective interns over a two-day period. Based on the formal interviews and applications, companies then submit a ranked list of students selected for consideration. Ranked students, in turn, rank their preferences for VI-A companies. The VI-A office then makes placements by matching company lists with student lists.
