Our Faculty: Innovators and Inventors

The College of Engineering at Northeastern has over 235 highly accomplished tenured/tenure-track faculty and more than 80 teaching faculty with five engineering departments, including bioengineering, chemical engineering, civil and environmental engineering, electrical and computer engineering, and mechanical and industrial engineering, along with a multidisciplinary master’s program unit.

Pushing beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries, our faculty collaborate across the College and University, as well as with academic, government and industry partners, to explore and create new areas of study. They work side by side with students inventing solutions to global challenges while developing the next generation of engineering leaders. They are also leading multi-institutional research centers, recipients of prestigious awards from government agencies and national organizations, fellows of professional societies, members of elite professional associations, and heads of national and international committees.
