World-recognized research across the broad spectrum of electrical and computer engineering while being dedicated to the education and mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students
Member of the National Academy of Engineering
ECE Professor Ali Abur was elected as a member of the National Academy of Engineering for contributions to power system state estimation and power engineering education. Election to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer.
New Master's Degrees
Announcing two new master's degrees, including a Master of Science in Internet of Things and a Master of Science in Wireless and Network Engineering. Both offer outstanding research and experiential opportunities with the Institute for the Wireless Internet of Things and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
Engineering in Action
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.
