Notes The lab was intentionally multidisciplinary: while located in the Department of Architecture, half of Arch Mac’s student researchers came from the Department of Electrical Engineering and encompassed both undergraduate and graduate student researchers. Arch Mac granted master’s and doctoral degrees, the only lab at MIT to do so. Similar to other labs and groups at MIT (and other major technical institutions) the majority of Arch Mac’s funding came from defense research contracts with the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA —later DARPA) and the Office of Naval Research; other funding came from non-defense sources such as the National Science Foundation and private corporations.
