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 accelerated master’s programs.
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 50 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.
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.
Designed to provide new students with tools they need to succeed at Northeastern, the First Year Engineering program exposes students to all engineering majors and includes a common first year curriculum, special seminars, and social activities as well as one-on-one mentoring with advisors.
A wide variety of academic tutoring services are available to undergraduate engineering students taking courses across engineering departments. Free, drop-in tutoring is also available for first-year engineering students in physics, calculus, chemistry, and general engineering courses.
The university and college offer multiple honors programs for students to demonstrate their educational excellence and enhance their college experience.
With a commitment to diversity and inclusion, the college has several programs to welcome, support, and create opportunity for all talented students from all around the world and with a variety of backgrounds.
With a strong entrepreneurship ecosystem and innovative programs that combine engineering and business education, students are bringing their innovations to market and developing as leaders.
With a focus on developing multifaceted engineers, we push beyond interdisciplinary programs, adding also combined majors, and offering over 70 minors in engineering and from across seven colleges at the university. Accelerated master’s programs are also available.
Interdisciplinary Engineering PhD student Benjamin Gincley received a prestigious and highly competitive 2020 National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship (GRFP).
Madeline DuBois, BS Environmental Engineering, was awarded a 2020 Fulbright scholarship at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark to study agriculture with a specialization in production and the environment.
Congratulations to the current students and alumni who are recipients of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program Awards.
Bioengineering BS/MS student Jake Potts was awarded a prestigious Fulbright Fellowship which he will use to conduct research at Sorbonne University to try to determine how certain cancerous mutations happen as DNA is “misrepaired,” a process that occurs when, say, radiation or harsh chemicals break the two strands of our DNA, and our cells respond by trying to repair this damage.
