If you would like to hear about Voltage events, you can add yourself to the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list or email email@example.com to be added.
This is a great opportunity to talk to electrical engineering alumni about their experiences at MIT and in the field, the different opportunities available, and what it’s like to use an electrical engineering degree in the workplace. Gain advice for the future from alums working in a range of industries including robotics, integrated circuit design, venture capital, and more. Join us for great food and conversations!
We are always looking for new members excited about Voltage's mission to join us. Here are some of the things we've done in the past, and we'd like to increase the impact of Voltage on Course 6-1 by doing even more. It's a great opportunity to become more involved and gain leadership experience. If this sounds interesting to you, apply here. If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Voltage is the electrical engineering subcommittee of MIT's IEEE/ACM chapter. We are a group of undergraduates working to create a stronger, more cohesive MIT undergraduate EE community by organizing events that allow students, faculty, alumni, and industry to interact. We aim to make being 6-1 more than a major, but a community. Some events we have held in the past are the Undergraduate EE Expo, Research Expo, Alumni Dinner, Faculty and Student Dinner, and study breaks.
EE Research Expo:
(March 9, 2016) The goal of the EE Expo was to increase EE exposure among interested students and spike interest among undecided students for opportunities in the department. Voltage organized a research expo where professors gave presentations about their different research departments.

Faculty/Student End of Semester Dinner:
(December 3, 2015) As the semester was coming to a close, Voltage invited MIT EE faculty and students to a dinner to casually chat to get to know each other as well as discuss classes and research.

(April 21, 2015) To give course 6-1 students some exposure to all the various career paths in electrical engineering, Voltage invited 6-1 alumni in the Boston area from different career paths to share their experiences with using EE skills in the workplace and advice for the future over dinner.

EE Research Expo:
(April 1, 2015) The goal of the EE Expo was to increase EE exposure among interested students and spike interest among undecided students for opportunities in the department. With help from Professor Perreault, Voltage organized a research expo where professors gave presentations about their different research departments. Article here.
