The Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering Leadership is offered through participation in the Gordon Engineering Leadership Program at Northeastern University.
The Gordon Engineering Leadership Program is a transformational, technical, and challenging graduate-level learning experience targeted for engineering professionals.
The Gordon Institute, in collaboration with the College of Engineering, offers the Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering Leadership (MSECEL)along with the Graduate Certificate in Engineering Leadership as formal recognition of the combined focus in electrical and computer engineering technical skills and midlevel engineers’ leadership acumen and broadened cross-functional capabilities.
The Gordon Engineering Leadership Program anchors around an intense, market-worthy challenge project based on your organization’s strategic needs. This is a unique opportunity to apply your classroom experience to a professional setting, potentially further accelerating your career.
Enhance technical knowledge in electrical and computer engineering
Take part in a hands-on curriculum taught by industry-experienced professors
Work with peers from across engineering fields on leadership skills development
Receive one-on-one mentoring from industry experts and faculty
Complete 16 semester hours from the approved depth/breadth course lists within the seven EECE concentrations.Students are encouraged to take at least three courses within the same concentration.
The College of Engineering Graduate Cooperative Education Program (co-op) is one option for experiential learning and is available on a competitive basis to selected students. Cooperative Education at the graduate level is not just a way for students to gain real world experience, but is a way to challenge, network, expand and fine-tune their knowledge within their respective industry. The goals of cooperative education are to:
Apply knowledge and skills in new, authentic contexts.
Develop new knowledge and skills.
Integrate and use the deepened knowledge and skills in your academic programs.
Reflect on and articulate how you used your knowledge and skills, how you gained new knowledge and skills, and how “theory and practice” work together.
The Graduate School of Engineering placed over 200 students with some of the most sought after technical skills in positions nationally during the 2015 academic year. We have a team that prepares students for cooperative education experience through resume building, developing interview skills and guiding professional development.
Our faculty represents a wide cross-section of professional practices and in fields ranging from finance to education to biomedical science to management to the U.S. military. They serve as mentors and advisors, and collaborate alongside students to solve the most pressing global challenges facing established and emerging markets.
