The coming decades will represent a crucial time in human history. Environmental change, urbanization, and technological progress will profoundly reshape how we live and work. From the opportunities of renewable energy and artificial intelligence to the threats of climate change and aging infrastructure, engineering professionals with both technical and policy expertise are poised to be the key decision-makers and leaders of the future. Already, public policy expertise is vital for successful planning and completion of civil and environmental engineering projects. Northeastern University’s Master of Science in Engineering and Public Policy provides the knowledge and tools needed to combine engineering analysis with public policy and decision-making. This program covers the core skills necessary to link engineering design and analysis research with the economic and policy contexts needed for decisions that affect society at large. You’ll study specific engineering applications within one of the concentrations, coupled with fundamental methodologies in policy analysis, economics, and statistics.
