I find the program not so challengingJan 19 2015Other
I find the program not so challenging. They advertise heavily on available CO-OP opportunities and I have tried getting across them from last 4 months for no avail. They won't get back to you so easily.

Next the level of courses are not adequate to find jobs in the industry. There faculty is mostly adjunct who work in the industry and are laid back and not enthusiastic. If you do not want to spoil you GPA stay away from these 2 professors

B- ANNA TARANOVAWord of Advise: Ask them to give you reference of students who got CO-OP opportunities through them. I was given website address like careerbuilder and monster. Did I just spend over $35000.00 in tution to find this? Hmmmm...

Lots of homework andNov 20 2014Engineering Department
Lots of homework and assignments are given in the courses, which are at times difficult. Faculty should look into perspective, the student's progress and focus more on conceptual understanding.
I was left feeling very disappointed with theAug 07 2012Business - Management and Administration
I was left feeling very disappointed with the University and its administration. They do everything possible to sell their programs but once you are in, you're just a number. There is very little assistance (in general) for Graduate students because the attitude of the administration and faculty is "this is graduate school." That is what makes the school "Northeastern" as opposed to "Harvard" or "MIT." Those other schools go out of their way to make sure their students succeed as students and beyond. Beware of what Northeastern is trying to sell you!
Really great competitive atmosphereJan 01 2012Telecommunications
Really great competitive atmosphere. Assignment and projects are made so challenging. Faculty is ready to help 24x7. Although I was an off-campus resident the university police made me feel safe.
My GOD. Please read this carefully anyone whoJul 14 2011Computer Engineering
My GOD. Please read this carefully anyone who is even considering this god forsaken piece of shit they call a school. First off, the SHAFT, yes it is done very frequently, the admins will go out of their way to try to screw students up the ass. I tried to cancel my insurance which was, for some reason forced upon me despite the fact that i already had far superior coverage. It was a nightmare. I ended up sending a least 20 emails, making at least ten calls and visiting three different offices at least five times apiece.

do not bother going!
DO NOT WASTE YOURJun 30 2010Computer Science
Some prof's are fantastic- most are mediocre and the supporting staff/admin are morons.GO SOMEWHERE ELSE !
The Masters Of IS program offers nothing newJun 14 2010School of Information
The Masters Of IS program offers nothing new from Undergraduate programs and they curve grades. I've heard the same from another undergraduate student from my hometown that's transferred out of another program: in terms of grade curving.

I would look at other private universities that have smaller class sizes, and that offer challenging programs(that give you a reason to want to do the coursework instead of repeating undergraduate work) that rely on your actual ability.

I went to an undergraduate program that didn't curve grades, reinforced teamwork(grade curving just introduces politics and backstabbing other students), and had challenging classes(they used end of year feedback in addition to test scores to determine if the program was good instead of a bell curve.)It's a large university so the student body was a mix of friendly with a dash of arrogance.

Hello, I was recently accepted as a graduateApr 12 2010Engineering Department
Hello, I was recently accepted as a graduate student in the M.S. in Engineering Management degree at NEU and I'm trying to decide between it and the program at Tufts.

Does anyone have any info/insight into the MSEM program here at NEU?
I am leaning toward NEU simply based on the schedule flexibility (night classes, online classes) and that its got a great reputation for engineering. However, I've been able to find out very little information about the program, which has me a little bit unsure...

Can anyone help me out?

I graduated with an MSME in 1989 GPA 3Aug 30 2005Mechanical Engineering
I graduated with an MSME in 1989 GPA 3.7/4.0
My graduate program was conducted nights while working full time days and raising a family. The ability to work in industry with good pay while attending graduate school at night made attaining a graduate degree possible. Of course such an experience is far from the reasearch assistant and full time student experience of many schools.

I feel my education has played a large role in my career.I am currently working as a Sr. Principal Engineer, and have been granted 8 patents and have 2 publications since graduating.
