An experiential engineering education that prepares you for the real world
Engineering is an exciting and evolving field. Engineers pioneer discoveries that shape society and can have a transformative impact on the world. As a student in the College of Engineering at Northeastern you will have the opportunity to personalize your path with five engineering departments, interdisciplinary majors, over 70 minors across seven colleges, and the PlusOne accelerated master’s program.
You will also have the opportunity for experiential learning—from laboratory exercises, senior design projects, professional association activities, and research with highly accomplished faculty, to cooperative education where you gain industry experience as part of the curriculum.
In and outside of the classroom you will be engaged. Our students participate in the College’s over 60 student organizations, national and global competitions, a vibrant entrepreneurship and business ecosystem, and a range of global experience options.
What Is Engineering
Students from across a variety of engineering majors at Northeastern explain what the different fields of engineering are and what they find most exciting about their chosen disciplines.
Making Notable Advancements in Neuro-Engineering
Electrical & Computer Engineering student Spencer Lake Jacobs-Skolik shares his experience leading research, becoming a published author, and earning a Goldwater Scholarship – all as an undergraduate. Learn how Northeastern University’s College of Engineering provides research opportunities you can’t find anywhere else, and how those experiences prepare passionate students for successful careers.
Chemical Engineering Research Co-op in Switzerland
Chemical Engineering student Hannah Boyce shares her unique experience conducting research abroad at ETH Zurich, one of Europe’s leading biotech institutions.
Bioengineering at the Speed of Covid
Ella Strzegowski (Bioengineering E’23) embarked on a co-op at Moderna in the fall of 2021, just as the company was applying for its biologics license and COVID-19’s Omicron variant was tearing through the population. Her experience placed her at the epicenter of covid-related research even as the virus—and the world’s response to it—changed by the day.
Support and resources for personalized pathways and success
Professional academic advisors in the College of Engineering Undergraduate Academic Advising Office are available to provide information on support and referral resources for all student issues and concerns.
