How our partnerships create results
Advancing research, filling talent pipelines

Headquartered in Arlington, the defense and aerospace giant collaborates closely with our faculty, identifying and solving challenging problems while leveraging expertise from our multidisciplinary research institutes and centers.
Together, we also help build and fill Raytheon’s talent pipeline. Each year, the company hires students into six-month, full-time co-ops and recruits our talented graduates into the workforce.
Amazon web services
Launching STEM careers
Amazon Web Services, a global company in the NCR, has created a fall application pathway into its summer co-ops in software development for all students enrolled at Northeastern campuses that offer the Align master’s degree program in computer science, including Arlington. To exceptional co-op performers, AWS provides tuition reimbursement and a stipend until they graduate—plus a job.
The Align program is for college graduates with no background in programming. Students move through the fundamentals to master’s level coursework. Hiring managers say they prize graduates’s technical skills and diversity of thought and perspective.

Turbocharging early-stage companies
Startups can access Northeastern’s wealth of entrepreneurship expertise, mentors, and funders. By tapping into these resources, New England Marine Monitoring modernized its fisheries video-monitoring technology.
Faculty experts in machine vision-based AI offered technical guidance. NEMM won space, funding, and advising with a Founder Residency at Northeastern’s Roux Institute in Portland, Maine, then brought a Roux graduate student in computer science aboard full time, on co-op. She developed tools that make it easier for NEMM’s team to visualize and interpret data for their customers.
Customizing programs for government teams
Northeastern designs programs, workshops, and seminars for the U.S. armed forces, federal agencies, and other organizations eager to maintain a competitive edge. The Kostas Research Institute, in conjunction with the MIT Lincoln Laboratory, hosted a training designed for National Guard servicemembers and their interagency partners in the emergency management and homeland security fields.
National Guard members and federal-level emergency response managers toured the facilities and learned about new technologies and techniques in the homeland protection, emergency management, space, cyber, and innovation domains.
