Overall, 70.2 percent of the Class of 2019 enrolled in the School of Engineering, 19.9 percent in the School of Science, 2.2 percent in the Sloan School of Management, 1 percent in the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, 0.6 percent in the School of Architecture and Planning.

A survey created to assess declining enrollment in Course 6-1 (Electrical Engineering) has been repurposed into an undergraduate-wide survey regarding students’ perceptions of academic majors.
Declarations of Course 6-3 rose significantly from last year, while those of its stouter cousin 6-2 fell the most, as the Registrar’s Office tallied the results of the Class of 2020’s major selections. Overall, new enrollments in the School of Engineering dropped 3.3 percent, while majors outside the top nine tacked on a 2.5 percent increase.
