The Northeastern University Civil Engineering Alumni Organization (NUCEAO) was formed in 1978 to assist engineering students and to expand the capabilities and resources of the Northeastern University student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers.

NUCEAO also has the purpose of enhancing the relationship between alumni and the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering and its faculty. It forms the core of the civil and environmental engineering alumni base and provides a range of support for the department, including providing speakers for the departmental and student organization seminars, mentors for current student activities, and generous donations.
