Graduate Engineering Programs for Students with Non-Engineering Backgrounds
Applicants with any science, engineering, or other technical major are acceptable as long as the candidate provides evidence of technical or programming skills. Information Systems Bridge applicants must be non-STEM majors
Suitable for any non-engineer across all NU programs
Students with non-STEM, non-technical bachelor’s degrees (such as Finance, English, Political Science, Marketing, Psychology, and more) have the opportunity to earn a Master of Science in Information Systems (MS in IS) in an accelerated time frame with Northeastern’s Information Systems Bridge Admissions Pathway (IS Bridge). No pre-Calculus or higher level math required. No programming background required.
Energy Systems applicants with quantitative business or finance majors are acceptable if candidates also have some background in computer science and calculus. Students with first-year calculus, physics and chemistry in their undergrad studies, but no prior exposure to thermos-sciences may apply to the Energy Systems – Academic Link program.
Energy Systems Academic Link
The Master of Science in Energy Systems – Academic Link program enables students with first-year calculus, physics and chemistry in their undergraduate studies, but no prior exposure to thermo-sciences to complete the multidisciplinary energy systems program with integrated, introductory coursework.
Any engineering or science degree (e.g. Biology, Chemistry) are acceptable
Biology or Chemistry undergraduate degrees are acceptable
Data Analytics Engineering
Applicants who hold a Bachelor’s degree in any of the following fields are academically qualified for admissions consideration: Applied mathematics, mathematics, statistics, physics, chemistry, computer science, or quantitative business (e.g. economics, finance, information systems)
Mathematics or physics majors with linear algebra and multivariable calculus, or students of any major with the equivalent background in mathematics as an engineering major are acceptable.
Applicants with majors in applied physics are acceptable
Majors in any science discipline including computer science and mathematics are acceptable; other majors considered are economics, business, or other liberal arts with some background in calculus and linear algebra
Sustainable Building Systems
Applicants with majors in any engineering, or science degree are acceptable; candidates with majors in architecture or who have some background in the built environment are also considered for admission
Applicants with majors in mathematics, physics, or computer science are acceptable
