Northeastern opening Silicon Valley outpost
Boston Globe - 03/30/2015
McNamee is one of several students piloting a new program Northeastern University plans to open this fall. The university has struck a partnership with the company where McNamee works, Integrated Device Technology, to open a small Northeastern campus inside its San Jose corporate headquarters, aimed at reaching midcareer workers like McNamee.
The program, a mix of online and classroom instruction taught by Northeastern professors, hopes to serve 300 students over the next three years at the IDT site, with a goal of opening future sites within other companies. It will offer a master’s degree in engineering management and two certificate programs in data science and technology project management, according to the university.
