Students with substantial background in EE and CS can satisfy the requirements of 6.01 by serving as a lab assistant in the design labs. As a lab assistant, you prepare for design labs by working with the staff during staff meetings each week. You then help 6.01 students during your regularly scheduled design lab session.

As a lab assistant, your design lab grade is determined by your participation and engagement as a lab assistant. You are required to complete all other aspects of the subject (including the tutor exercises, software labs, nano-quizzes, midterms, and final exam).

Student lab assistants are expected to maintain an "A" average on exams and to help students effectively during lab sections.

Student lab assistants are paid for the additional work required to attend staff meetings. Please email with a description of your background if you wish to apply for this option or have any questions.
