First Year Engineering
The first year engineering program provides new students with tools they need to succeed at Northeastern University. The first year of engineering at Northeastern is a common curriculum in which all students regardless of intended major enroll in math, chemistry, physics, GE 1000 Introduction to Engineering, GE1110 Engineering Design and GE1111 Engineering Problem Solving and Computation. Through these courses, special seminars and social activities, students are provided an opportunity to explore the different engineering majors currently offered at Northeastern University. Students are supported by one-on-one meetings with their academic advisor several times a year to help them register for courses and plan their academic career in the College of Engineering. The Gateway faculty that teach the first year courses in math, chemistry, physics and engineering have diverse backgrounds and professional job experiences in both industry and academia so they deliver a unique first year experience that emphasizes hands-on learning, technical immersion in engineering concepts, problem solving strategies and time management skills.
