The departmental mission and program educational objectives have been developed in conjunction with students, faculty, alumni, and industrial constituents. They serve to characterize the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering programs at Northeastern University and to guide the educational activities of the department in support of the college and university missions.

Our mission is to educate students for professional and technical excellence, to perform research to advance the science and practice of engineering, to engage in service activities that advance the department, the university, and the profession, and to instill in ourselves and our students’ habits and attitudes that promote ethical behavior, professional responsibility and careers that advance the well-being of society.
