Welcome to Week 9!
This week we will be doing a deeper dive into Engineering Management, a graduate field of study at Northeastern University.
In this newsletter you will be introduced to a STEM topic and find a related-activity to work on during the week (please share your results with us!), as well as extensions to additional learning or games related to the field. In addition, you will find a Northeastern connection – something Northeastern is doing related to that field.
- Northeastern Graduate School of Engineering
This week we are learning about Engineering Management, a program offered at Northeastern’s Graduate School of Engineering. However, there are many, many more options for graduate programs in engineering, from Mechanical Engineering to Operations Research, Human Factors to Engineering Business, Data Science to Cyberseceurity, plus much more. There are a variety of ways to continue your undergraduate education in engineering, such as through a PlusOne program, a Master’s Degree, a PhD, and a Graduate Certificate program.
- Litmus – Interview SCM Professor
Litmus, is a Northeastern News segment in which groundbreaking researchers from Northeastern University are interviewed and their research is connected with what’s going on in your life. This interview is with Nada Sanders, an expert in supply chain management (SCM), a professor at Northeastern’s D’Amore-McKim School of Business.
Web Resources for K-12 Students and Parents
In addition to the resource highlight above, which is tied directly to the Newsletter topic, we will also highlight two new web resources each week.
- Discovery Education – Virtual Learning
Discovery Education, the educational arm of the Discovery Company (Discovery Chanel, Animal Planet, Science Chanel, etc.). A variety of virtual resources to explore whilst stuck at home, including virtual field trips (these are awesome!!), daily activities (sorted by grade), and a cool puzzlemaker.
- Engineering Tips
Primarily intended for practicing engineers, this website is a discussion board/forum to ask for help and/or tips in a huge variety of different engineering fields, as well as containing a variety of engineering resources.
