The Northeastern University Align program is designed for people who don’t have a technical background and are interested in combining their skills and undergraduate education with computer science. The program provides bridge courses to give you the technical foundation you need to be successful in the MS in Computer Science program. Our students come from every possible background including English, Political Science, Biology, Economics, Journalism, Media Studies, Health Sciences, Nursing and more; most of whom have no prior coding or computer science experience.

  • The Align program will be offered in Vancouver September 2020 and Toronto January 2021
  • Students will gain 6-8 months of work experience in Northeastern’s co-op program
  • Many are offered jobs by their co-op employers
  • All graduates of this program are employed in tech positions at leading firms
