To most people, Engineer In Training. However, "eit" as a term was originally coined by the MIT chapter if TEP in the early 1980's. Brothers would cause an eitful thing to happen (knock things out of someone's hand; cause bodily harm), and exclaim, "Eit!"

It has been observed that the sound of objects falling in Mad Magazine is also "Eit!"

"Eit!" has similar uses to "D'oh!"
