Northeastern University is great for its co op program feature. This was my main reason for choosing this university. It gave me much needed experience and helped me to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. While expensive I was able to subsidize costs through scholarships and on campus jobs. The location is great in that you have access to other colleges and universities. Diversity was an issue during my time as I was often the only person of color in classes. However strong cultural groups and community helped with that.
Northeastern University offers a 5 year program where, starting your third year, you work at 6-month coops that you must apply and interview for. This will help you improve your interview skills and boosts your resume for after graduation. Their study abroad programs are also very easy to apply for and relatively cheap. They offer summer semesters abroad and "dialog of civilizations" which are less than two months long and extremely fun. While the campus is small, Northeastern is located in Boston where it is surrounded by many other colleges and there are three train stops on campus that allows you to explore the rest of Boston. There are plenty of delicious food to eat and activities in the city to do. There are also a lot of bars and clubs to party at, and Boston's public transportation is easy, as well as the ride-sharing apps like Uber and Lyft.
It is diverse and in Boston where you can connect with people from all walk of life and backgrounds and have an opportunity to experience life. The engineering program is rigorous and with the coop program you are able to apply all the theories in the class to the workplace.
Northeastern University is a great school; there are certainly many qualified lecturers from many worldwide renowned Universities. The curriculum is challenging therefore you are better prepared to confidently enter the workforce knowing that you will excel. I also do find that many employers are impressed with the work ethic and knowledge of job candidates from Northeastern University.
Northeastern has a wonderful program. The co-op opportunities are what made the difference when I was applying for a job. Having a year and a half of experience under by belt really set me apart from others hired right out of school and helped accelerate my career. I continue to stay in touch with the alumni network. My education prepared me very well for higher education as well.
Northeastern's co-op program was an invaluable opportunity to gain work experience which enabled me to mare clearly define my career goals and learn what it was actually like to work in my field. It also gave me contacts in the biotech industry before I even graduated and allowed me to begin to build a reputation and get started on my career path before I even graduated. I still rely on contacts I made and experiences I had during my co-ops at Northeastern in my career and education today.
As a rising senior at Northeastern University, I've been able to look back on my education and what I've learned. Northeastern has fostered my passion for neuroscience through my courses in clinical neuroscience, psychopharmacology, neurobiology, and behavioral endocrinology. Through the school's internship program, I've been lucky enough to work in the neuroscience research department at Harvard Medical School and Pfizer, studying neural circuits and drug addiction implications in the brain. As my undergraduate career comes to an end, I hope to attend medical school and work towards my goal of becoming a neurosurgeon. With an aptitude for research, a love of learning, and a passion for helping others, I am excited for a career in medicine. Northeastern has not only solidified my dream of becoming a doctor, but has challenged me to think critically and solve problems in scientific research, which has only bolstered my curiosity in my field and pushed me to achieve my goals.
It was a great experience. I was involved in the figure skating club on campus and had a co-op with a research lab.
I had a fantastic time. A great, varied university that had a ton of great teachers for my chosen subject. The City of Boston is great.
Excellent coop program. Very valuable industry experience gained during Master's. Love being in Boston. Courses are diverse and intellectually challenging. There were great, good and some bad professors, but mostly on the good side. My overall experience has been very positive.
