The Graduate School of Engineering offers research and professional degree programs organized around a core curriculum that equips students with a solid foundation for technical and leadership positions in industry organizations, government laboratories, research laboratories, and educational institutions. By involving students in many levels of research, encouraging collaboration across departments, and partnering with outside institutions and organizations globally, Northeastern University engineering graduate students have the opportunity to gain a rich and experiential education in their chosen discipline.

Master of Science and doctoral degree programs are offered, as well as numerous graduate certificate programs that can be applied toward master’s degree programs for lifelong learning. The GSE offers traditional full-time day and part-time evening master's and doctoral degree programs and part-time evening certificate programs. Programs are offered in Boston, Arlington, Seattle, Silicon Valley, Oakland, Portland (ME), Toronto, and Vancouver. A number of courses and degree programs are also available in a flexible online or hybrid format, which are well suited for distance learners. Innovative programs, such as interdisciplinary degrees, business/entrepreneurship pathways, and the Academic Link program for students without an undergraduate engineering degree (or who need additional preparatory coursework), enable students to personalize their learning experience.
