Curriculum Guides


The College of Engineering has a wide variety of programs and options including Bachelor of Science in 8 majors, combined majors within the college and with other colleges at the university. Many of the plans include several co-op experiences, depending on the major. Further examples of these along with possibilities for accelerating graduation or entrance to our graduate programs can be explored by the student.

The following curriculum guides are for current students and are samples only- actual curriculum sequences may deviate from these samples. Programs of study are the responsibility of the student. The University Catalog provides a listing of degree requirements for each program, and the DARS system provides a degree audit utility for students.

4 Year

This option allows you to complete your Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in a specific engineering major in 4 years, and still have 2 co-op periods for a total of 1 year of work experience. Students are encouraged to use AP credits and transfer credits obtained before coming to Northeastern to take advantage of this option.

5 Year

This program spans 5 years with three 6-month co-op periods and culminates in a BS degree.

Accelerate Master’s Programs

The PlusOne Accelerated Master’s degree programs are offered in conjunction with a number of undergraduate majors within the College of Engineering. When enrolled in the PlusOne Program, students complete all undergraduate degree requirements and receive the Bachelor of Science degree prior to entering into graduate student status, to complete a minimum of four graduate courses in the “PlusOne” year. As with the BS/MS degree program, the PlusOne Program is designed to allow for a limited number of graduate courses (a maximum of either 8 or 16 semester hours depending upon the major) to be taken while in undergraduate status, which can be applied toward fulfillment of both BS and MS degree requirements. Note: These curricula are for current students and are samples only – actual curriculum sequences may deviate from these samples. Programs of study are the responsibility of the student. The University Catalog provides a listing of degree requirements for each program, and the DARS system provides a degree audit utility for students. If a student can complete a combined program by August 2022, please refer to Bachelor of Science/Master of Science Programs Policies and Procedures.
