    Why I Picked Northeastern University (Boston)
    Rachael Tompa, 2014 graduate

    I knew I wanted a career in aerospace and defense, so when I visited Northeastern’s ​campus, I was happy not only to be shown the usual sights like dorms, classrooms and the beautiful rec center, but also to be taken on faculty-led tours of the university’s state-of-the art electrical, mechanical and civil engineering labs.

    I was impressed, too, by Northeastern’s outstanding co-op program,​ which enables students to rotate classroom work with on-the-job experience at major companies. I spent six-month rotations working in operations at Raytheon Co., flight testing at Sikorsky Aircraft and in thermal engineering at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
