Undergraduate

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Admission to Northeastern is selective and competitive. In building a diverse and talented incoming class, the Admissions Committee seeks to enroll students who have been successful academically and who have been actively involved in school activities and in their communities.

Academically, the typical Northeastern admitted student has been extremely successful in a challenging course load. When considering applicants for freshman admission, the committee considers whether the applicant's high school transcript reflects the various academic opportunities offered such as honors, advanced placement, international baccalaureate, or college-level courses.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Admission is to the college of engineering. The admitted student is free to choose his/her major within the college.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

In order to maintain lawful student status in the United States, international students must be very mindful of the rules and regulations that govern their non-immigrant visa classification. Numerous U.S. federal mandates and regulations implementing the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) make it especially important for students in the F1 (student) and J1 (exchange visitor) categories to consult regularly with an international student adviser at the International Student and Scholar Institute (ISSI) before taking any action that might impact their immigration status and educational endeavors in the United States. International students must register full time, on time (within the appropriate registration period) during the regular academic year. In addition, international students must not begin or resume any type of employment without first obtaining proper employment authorization or verification from the ISSI. Any exceptions from full-time registration requirements must be pre-approved by the ISSI in accordance with specified federal regulations.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

(Same as for resident students)

Residency Requirements

Students may transfer up to 60 semester-hours of credit from an accredited two-year college, or up to 80 semester-hours from an accredited four-year college or any combination of two- and four-year college/university credit to a maximum of 80 credits. Once they matriculate, students are expected to complete all course work for their degree at Northeastern. More specific information is available in the current University catalog.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

When reviewing transfer students, the committee takes into consideration such factors as the candidate's academic transcript, resume, recommendations and essay.

Number of Transfer Students from:

A two-year community junior college where they were full-time students: 7
A four-year college or university where they were full-time students: 28

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.

image understanding, image and data information management

Kostas Institute for Homeland Security

The mission of the George J. Kostas Institute for Homeland Security is to advance the development of societal resilience in the face of 21st Century risks. The institute fosters a collaborative environment where multidisciplinary teams of academic and industry researchers interact closely with private and public sector practitioners. These teams undertake use-inspired research to develop practical and scalable tools and applications that expand the capacity of communities, critical systems, and infrastructure to withstand, respond to, recover from, and adapt to disruptive events.

Our facility offers a secure environment for innovative translational research and regularly convenes meetings for private and public sector practitioners in the fields of security and resilience from across New England, the United States, and the world.

PROTECT - Center for Healthcare Engineering

The Puerto Rico Testsite for Exploring Contamination Threats (PROTECT) Center is a collaboration of experts in engineering, public health, and biomedical and environmental sciences, with the dual goal of (1) reducing exposure to environmental contamination and (2) reducing the preterm birth rate in Puerto Rico and beyond. Our vision is that by joining the medical and engineering sciences in a seamless collaboration, the benefit and impact of our research program as a whole is far greater than the sum of its parts.
