Northeastern started with an innovative idea: that education is about engaging with the world to solve problems and lead change. That distinctive approach, founded in cooperative education, has created an academic culture that infuses both undergraduate and graduate studies.

We empower our undergraduates to chart their own academic path, through more than 90 majors and concentrations and global experiential learning opportunities in 92 countries. Northeastern's 158 graduate programs prepare students for emerging new fields; students are able to take courses on campus, online, or in hybrid formats, creating the educational experience that best meets their needs.

The university is committed to the educational success of its students, offering need-based aid and a range of scholarships to reward the outstanding achievements of students from all walks of life.

GRADUATE COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING

Today’s engineering challenges are far more complex than anything we could have imagined even a decade ago. To meet these challenges, engineers from previously distinct areas are now overlapping and partnering with experts in other fields. Northeastern’s College of Engineering is optimally placed to respond to this paradigm shift; for more than a century, interdisciplinary collaboration and engagement with the real world have been our guiding principles.

Our faculty push beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries to explore and create new areas of study. Their research looks at critical issues in materials, processes, systems and infrastructure at every scale—nano to macro to global—grounded in a translational approach that integrates the values of fundamental and applied research to meet societal needs.

Our students develop as innovators and leaders through Northeastern’s distinctive model of experiential learning, anchored by our world-leading cooperative education program. The combination of challenging classroom study with opportunities for professional practice and research ensures that we are preparing the next generation of engineers to keep pace with fast-changing global demands. Please join us on this journey.
