Graduate School of Engineering

  November 2015
Welcome to campus!


We are excited to have all our continuing students back in classes and to welcome our biggest incoming class!


I will be your point of contact in the Graduate School for the duration of your academic career at Northeastern University and look forward to  work with you. I hope my services will help make your experience in the program a positive one!


A little bit about me: I have lived in Boston for the past 6 years and was in California before that. I lived in both San Francisco and Los Angeles, and no, I don't prefer one city over the other, they are both fantastic for very different reasons! You may hear me speak French; I grew up in Switzerland and still visit every year. I do fit the clichés as I love good dark chocolate and flavorful cheese! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and I hope you are looking forward to it as I am. 


Stop by the office with your questions or to introduce yourself as I look forward to getting to know you all a little better!


RegistrationSpring 2016 Course Registration


Spring 2016 registration opens  November 13, 2015 for all continuing students. 


On 11/12/15, the Registrar's office will email you a registration time ticket. Please check your husky email that day for your registration details. 


The Spring 2016 class catalog is now available on MyNEU


I hope that you had the chance to meet with your academic advisor to discuss your class choices. If not, I advise you set up a meeting with your advisor as soon as possible. This will give you the opportunity to check in with your advisor and ensure that you are taking courses aligned with your goals and program requirements. Your program requirements, can be found, in the Graduate Catalog for your term of entry.


If courses you are interested in carry a registration restriction, you will need to  complete a Registration Override Request Form. Please read all instructions on the form to ensure it is complete before submitting it to our office. The form may require multiple signatures. We can process most override forms prior to registration opening so, please submit your Override Registration Request Form as soon as possible.

A hard copy of the final approved version of your Thesis or Dissertation, with all required signatures, must be submitted to 130 Snell by 12/14/15. The GSE will facilitate final review by the Associate Dean.
Students submitting their Thesis or Dissertation after this date will be required to register for Thesis/Dissertation Continuation in the Spring 2016 term (if planning to graduate in May 2016). Tuition is charged at 1 semester hour for this course.

Publishing Deadline: Midnight on December 19, 2015
Once final approval and a signature from the Associate Dean of the Graduate School has been received, your Thesis or dissertation must be published using the ProQuest Publishing system by the deadline to qualify for the January degree conferral.

GSE Student Services has created a "COE Guide to the Preparation and Submission of Theses and Dissertations".  This document describes the steps needed to prepare to graduate with a Thesis or Dissertation.
