BS in Computer Engineering


In this program students will study computer architecture, software engineering, computer-aided design (VLSI), microprocessor-based design, and applied algorithms. In addition to a broad background in mathematics, physics, and chemistry, this curriculum gives you solid foundation in both hardware and software design. RISC microprocessors, object-oriented Java and cellular networks are just three of the technologies you will encounter in the program.

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.

Academic Pre-Requisites

High School Subject -

must have taken physics, chemistry, and precalculus

Standardized Test -

  • SAT/ACT - you should not submit the SAT or ACT, as results from either test will not be reviewed by the Admissions Committee.
  • Instead, you are encouraged to demonstrate your abilities by submitting results from any AP exams; predicted or final IB Diploma results, or at least 3 Higher Level course results; or, predicted or final results from other international pre-university qualifications. Any international qualifications must represent completion of secondary education, with final exams being administered by an independent examination board (not your high school) and required for university entrance in your country. Examples include the GCE Advanced Levels, or the Indian Higher Secondary School Certificate.
  • TOEFL - 99 and 107
  • IELTS - 7.0 and 8.0
  • PTE - 68 to 74

Interviews -

Northeastern does not offer alumni or on-campus interviews, but non-native English speaking students are permitted to submit third-party, unscripted video interviews, which allow you to personally discuss your academic and personal background. Northeastern will consider and evaluate video interviews submitted through InitialView, Vericant, or the video interview from the Duolingo English Test. Please note: none will replace English language proficiency testing, when required.
