Message from the Chair

Welcome to the Department of Chemical Engineering at Northeastern University (NU) - the private university which receives more undergraduate applications annually than any other university in the United States (earning NU the title of the most applied-to private university in the United States). We offer degrees at all levels (Bachelor of Science, Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy) and are internationally renowned for high quality classroom-based education in conjunction with industrial work experience. Our top-rated (and one of the nation’s largest) Cooperative (Co-op) Education program was one of the first in the country and the Chemical Engineering Co-op program places students in over 55 companies spanning the areas of consumer products, plastics, biotechnology, nanotechnology, alternative energy, and petrochemicals, to name a few. We even place students in International Co-op locations in the UK, France, Switzerland, China, and Vietnam.
