Additional Information

The department comprises 55 tenured/tenure-track faculty members, including 20 new hires since 2014, with over $13M in annual research funding, about 1300 Ph.D. and M.S. students, and a total combined grad/undergraduate student population of over 2500. A five year research contract vehicle from the Veterans Health Administration for $125M and a three year contract vehicle from the Army Research Office for $20M, received in early 2015, are bellwethers of both current success and future potential. In addition, of the eight federally-funded research centers in the College of Engineering, four are based in the MIE Department: 1) The NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC) for High-rate Nanomanufacturing, 2) The NSF Center for Health Organization Transformation, 3) The NSF Center for Microcontamination Control, and 4) The VA New England Healthcare Engineering Partnership.

At the core of the Northeastern engineering education experience is our top-ranked cooperative education program, which contributes significantly to the integrated learning model of the College of Engineering.
