Additional Information:

Khoury College has a diverse tenure/tenure-track faculty of 64, and it offers a broad array of research and educational opportunities to students. Since 2012, the college has hired 51 outstanding faculty members, and plans to continue this strategic growth in the coming years.  Faculty research spans all areas of computing and is interdisciplinary across seven of Northeastern’s colleges; 16 of the 64 faculty have joint appointments with other academic departments, including Electrical and Computer Engineering, Art and Design, Health Sciences, Communication Sciences and Disorders, Physics, Political Science, Psychology, Philosophy and Religion,  Business, Mathematics, and Law. Khoury faculty members are integral to Northeastern University’s multidisciplinary institutes including the Network Science Institute, the Cybersecurity and Privacy Institute, and the new Institute of Experiential Artificial Intelligence.

The college offers three undergraduate degrees (CS, Data Science and Cybersecurity); seven MS degrees (CS, Health Informatics, Data Science, Cybersecurity, Game Science and Design, Artificial Intelligence, and Robotics) and four PhD degrees (CS, Network Science, Personalized Health Informatics, and Cybersecurity). Several of these are interdisciplinary degrees with other Colleges at Northeastern.

Khoury College is committed to broadening participation in CS to increase diversity of thought and demographics.  For undergraduates, Khoury offers 36+ combined majors (CS+X) and has recently launched the Center for Inclusive Computing, which has the mission to broaden participation in undergraduate computing programs nationally. At the graduate level Khoury is now scaling its successful Align MS in CS program for people who did not study CS as an undergraduate. This includes building a consortium of universities in the U.S. to offer similar programs.

Khoury College has grown rapidly over the last five years in response to increased student demand at the BS, MS and PhD level and projects a continuation of this growth for the next few years.  We invite you to join a fast-moving, ambitious college with an underlying mission that is best captured by the phrase “CS for Everyone.”

Northeastern University is home to 27,000 full- and part-time students and to the nation’s premier cooperative education program. The past decade has witnessed a dramatic increase in Northeastern’s international reputation for research and innovative educational programs. A heightened focus on interdisciplinary research and scholarship is driving a faculty hiring initiative at Northeastern, advancing its position amongst the nation’s top research universities. Khoury College has been a major participant in this initiative and will continue the efforts this year, with additional interdisciplinary searches ongoing in related areas. Northeastern University has seven campuses located in Boston (the primary home of our tenure/tenure-track faculty), Seattle, San Francisco, San Jose, Charlotte, London, Vancouver and Toronto. Khoury offers the MS in CS and the Align MS in CS at 5 of the 7 campuses.  For more information about the College, please visit
