Flexible Degree Programs

The College of Engineering has many flexible options in obtaining a Bachelors degree. The most popular amongst students is a four year track with two co-ops, a five year track with three co-ops, and a BS/MS program. Advanced placement credit can be combined to accelerate your degree program, or it can be used to help attain a combined degree quicker. The bolded options within the table is for reference for new and incoming freshmen. Please look at other years for further examples with different courses of study.

There are several options including one of our most popular programs that spans 5 years with three 6-month co-op opportunities. Other program configurations include a 4-year BS and a 5-year combined BS/MS (Master of Science). These programs are typically completed with fewer co-op periods.

4 Year

This option allows you to complete your Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in a specific engineering major in 4 years, and still have 2 co-op periods for a total of 1 year of work experience. Students are encouraged to use AP credits and transfer credits obtained before coming to Northeastern to take advantage of this option.

5 Year

This program spans 5 years with three 6-month co-op periods and culminates in a BS degree.

BS/MS 

The BS/MS degree programs are offered in conjunction with a number of undergraduate engineering majors in the College. These are intended to be 5-year programs at the end of which the student receives the BS and MS degrees simultaneously, as well as having gained up to 12 months of cooperative work experience. The programs are designed so that a limited number of graduate courses (maximum of 16 semester hours) are applied toward the BS degree. Please review the Bachelor of Science/Master of Science Programs Policies and Procedures.

Note: These curricula are for current students only. The registrar’s website provides a listing of degree requirements and the DARS system provides a degree audit utility for students.
