After more than three decades of reporting, editing and running the investigative unit at The Boston Globe, Professor Walter Robinson returned to his alma mater, Northeastern, to teach journalism his way: through a “boots-on-the-ground” approach.
Callum Borchers, a student in the University’s Master of Arts program in Journalism, came because he wanted to learn it.
This summer, Nobel Laureates in the sciences gathered in Lindau, Germany to meet informally with 570 doctoral students from 80 countries – the 61st such assembly. Among those selected for the highly-competitive U.S. delegation to Lindau was Emily Corcoran, a Ph.D. student in Chemistry and a Northeastern University Excellence Fellowship recipient.
Sopchockchai came to Northeastern after completing her undergraduate degree at Brown University in 2005. “Part of the reason I came to Northeastern,” she says, “is because our program in the English Department gives students the opportunity to teach right away.”
“Each course presented a wonderful opportunity to learn and to grow as a teacher.”Nizar Zaarour started studying at Northeastern before some of his undergraduate students were born. Over the last 18 years, he has progressed from a BS in Civil Engineering through two MS degrees – one in Information Systems and one in Operations Research – and on to his PhD, in Industrial Engineering with a focus in Operations Research, while witnessing the campus change and grow.
Each is a trainee in Northeastern’s Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) doctoral program in Nanomedicine Science and Technology. The program, directed by Dr. Srinivas Sridhar, aims to educate the next generation of scientists and technologists from a number of fields by providing the necessary business, ethical and global perspectives to address scientific and engineering challenges that will be needed in the rapidly emerging area of applying nanotechnology to human health.
Dr. Vincent Harris, the recipient of the 2011 Klein University Lectureship, began his campus-wide address, Our magnetic society: The influence of magnetism from the iPod to cancer remediation therapies, by speaking of a substance he calls “exotic rust.”
The Expo, which has grown from 64 entries ten years ago to over 300 posters and presentations in 2011, highlights the innovation, creativity and impact of the University’s undergraduates, graduate students and faculty members.
