Welcome to 6.UAT, Spring 2019!

This website is being prepared for the new semester.

6.UAT is open to both undergraduate and graduate students; for the former, it is best taken in the sophomore spring or junior year (prerequisites are some technical coursework and some technical project under your belt) so that you have time to apply what you've learned in your coursework. The course will (1) encourage you to think about effective oral technical communication, and (2) equip you with communication skills necessary to succeed in a professional technical academic/industry setting. The course provides opportunities to practice your skills and mechanisms for feedback to strengthen them.

I took 6.UAT in the fall of 2016, and I honestly wish I had taken it earlier. Some people I knew had scared me into thinking that it was a "tough" or "uninteresting" class because you don't learn anything "technical", and I regret listening to them because I ended up acquiring skills through 6.UAT that no other technical class at MIT could have taught me. - 6.UAT Alum, Class of 2017
