Rachely Sanchez Murray, E’22, chemical engineering, developed her love for engineering early. Throughout high school, she participated in programs that helped foster that interest. She also knew she wanted to go to a college that not only fed that interest but was also extremely innovative and not stuck in “traditional” ways.
For Macy Parchment, E’22, a junior chemical engineering student, while Boston has certainly had many advantages, it’s her international experience that stands out as she looks back at her college career so far.

Northeastern alumna and current Stanford University PhD student Elizabeth Wig’s journey is a testament to the unlimited opportunities for growth and self-betterment […]
Michael Tormey, E’20, was one of 10 students nationwide named among the New Faces in Civil Engineering 2020 by the American Society of Civil Engineers. He was also honored with the 2020 Marshall Scholarship. A prestigious award given to only 46 U.S. students, it offers exceptional students an opportunity to pursue post-graduate degrees in England.
For fourth-year bioengineering majors Laura Bilal and Meghan Quon, their third-place finish in the 2020 Husky Startup Challenge, taking home $1,000 in funding to pursue their venture, was inspired by their own daily habits and needs. The “challenge” is part of the Entrepreneurs Club—Northeastern’s venture incubator and start-up pitch competition. The pair’s invention, KLIP Tech, […]
At the national American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) virtual conference in November, the Northeastern student chapter took part in the ChemE Car competition by developing a car that runs on a chemical reaction that must carry a certain weight, and travel a specific distance.
At the national American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) virtual conference this month, chemical engineering students from the Northeastern student chapter of AIChE competed in a STEM module competition, highlighting their outreach efforts to K-12 students from across the country.
During each step of her college journey, Northeastern graduate Liah Dukaye, E’17, chemical engineering, encountered, in her words, “ups and downs”—experiences that ultimately helped her build her skills, resilience, and confidence.
