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
New Robotics Programs
Looking at robotics from three interdisciplinary angles, the new Master of Science in Robotics program provides a comprehensive understanding of the algorithms, sensors, control systems, and mechanisms used in robotics to help students stand out in the field and make transformative impact on society. A minor is also available for undergraduate students, providing a coherent foundation in the principles and practice of robotics.
New University-Wide Research Institutes
Aligned with Northeastern's vision for interdisciplinary, collaborative discovery, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is leading two new university-wide research institutes, including the Institute for the Wireless Internet of Things, and the Institute for Experiential Robotics.
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.
