Making Notable Advancements in Neuro-Engineering

Electrical & Computer Engineering student Spencer Lake Jacobs-Skolik shares his experience leading research, becoming a published author, and earning a Goldwater Scholarship – all as an undergraduate. Learn how Northeastern University’s College of Engineering provides research opportunities you can’t find anywhere else, and how those experiences prepare passionate students for successful careers.

Co-op for a Wireless World

Sara Garcia Sanchez (PhD in Electrical Engineering) came to Northeastern University from Spain to study wireless communications in a high-level international environment. In addition to cutting-edge research, her experimental work brought her to a co-op with IBM, studying the use of the extremely high-frequency Millimeter Wave Band for sensing and communication.

World Renowned Co-op Program

Sofia Vanessa Benitez Quevedo, BS, electrical engineering, completed three co-ops near and far including iRobot as a systems engineer, Flex in California working on emerging tech on the internet of things, and Starry, a start up in Boston using cutting-edge technology for the next generation.

Getting a Competitive Edge on Co-op

Noah Lichtenstein, BS, computer engineering and computer science, says the integrated way of learning and experience with co-op will allow him to jump in to a job when he graduates. So far he’s had a co-op at Starry, an internet startup, and Amazon Robotics as a firmware engineer, and feels this experience will give him a decent leg up.
