The South Lake Union neighborhood, home to Northeastern’s Seattle campus, is an epicenter for innovation and discovery. Here you’ll find a range of companies and institutions that share the university’s vision of a world where cutting-edge thought leaders come together to inspire, create, and execute new technologies. Seattle is a city synonymous with software development, Internet titans, information technology, and biotechnology.
Silicon Valley Info
Recognized as a center of innovation, entrepreneurship, and growth, Silicon Valley is home to some of the most important tech companies and startups in the world. Northeastern’s presence here, creating education hubs embedded directly in select companies across the Bay Area, is intended in part to offer sector-specific degree programs and research collaborations that benefit the entire region—while connecting to global markets from Canada to Malaysia.
Strategically located in uptown, Northeastern’s Charlotte campus is poised to serve the approximately 100,000 professionals currently working in the area, who are interested in advancing their career. Educational attainment continues to be a top priority for Charlotte as the city extends its global economic reach. Northeastern brings the full resources of a top-tier, globally focused private research university to the region—along with a network of corporate and research partners—expanding opportunities for human capital development and advancing business recruitment and retention.
Some ALIGN degree programs are available entirely online. At Northeastern, online courses are held to the same high standard as our campus-based courses, and are taught by experienced instructors who are scholars and industry leaders. Online courses are designed to help students feel connected with the instructor and other students. Discussion boards and interactive tools help students feel they are a part of a dynamic learning experience.
