Restructuring the MIT Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

When I was a student in the department of EE at MIT during the early 1950s, the department had three options: power, communication, and electronics. I studied “electronics”, the newest option which featured study of vacuum tube circuits and servomechanisms. As the EE field evolved, the term of “Computer Sciences” was added to the department name as well as the size of the department grew to be the largest department in the school. Early last year due to a large donation, MIT created the Schwarzman College of Computer Science giving the discipline super department level status. This created re-organization opportunities and problems for both the EECS department as well as the new college. In some sense, China being somewhat late in the development of academic disciplines because of the Cultural Revolution and also being heavily influenced by the Soviet academic system during early days of the new Republic, avoided the re-organization problem by having (for example in the case of Tsinghua) separate departments of Electric Power Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Automation, and Computer Sciences.
