An interdisciplinary group of Northeastern students have combined their knowledge of engineering and architecture to create a plan to revitalize Forsyth Street, transforming it from a prime thoroughfare for cars and buses into a lush green space for pedestrians and bicyclists.
As co-ops, Micaela Allen and Eric Su have played an integral role in the launch of Insurify, a company that looks to make shopping for car insurance easier.
Today’s wind turbines are gargantuan structures that require high wind speeds to generate large amounts of energy for consumers. One group of engineering students presenting at RISE:2016—and featured at the […]
In honor of National Engineers Week, three members of Northeastern’s Society of Women Engineers share what inspired them to pursue degrees in the field and how they’re working to attract more young women to do the same.
Over the past century, the discipline of physics has expanded exponentially, crossing boundaries into areas as diverse as biology and engineering. Network scientists in the lab of Albert-László Barabási analyzed how this growth drives technological breakthroughs that improve our lives.
From a cyclone that knocked out swaths of the Indian Railways Network to the winter storms that brought the MBTA system to its knees, an urgent need exists for systematic strategies that speed the recovery of critical lifelines in the wake of disasters. Thanks to Northeastern researchers, that need is being met.
It’s not every day that a scientist gets a theory named after him. But when seismologists learned of Northeastern professor George Adams’s theory to help predict earthquake damage, they knew just what to call it: Adams Instability.
Students explored a wealth of research opportunities in a range of fields, from nanomedicine and environmental health to magnetic sensing and machine learning.
Eno Ebong, an assistant professor of chemical engineering, harnesses the power of multiple fields—from chemical engineering to nanomedicine—to lay the groundwork for treating vascular disease.
Five Northeastern student-researchers have retrofitted a rowing machine with an ingenious device, allowing people with paraplegia to exercise without the aid of a trainer.
Tianxiang Nan, a doctoral candidate in electrical engineering at Northeastern, has been selected to receive the 2015 Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-Financed Students Abroad.
An interdisciplinary group of Northeastern students and faculty have combined their knowledge of engineering and physical therapy to design, develop, and then deliver two low-cost communication devices to disabled kids living at a pair of orphanages in Ecuador.
