CCIS Student Life

When friends and family ask me what I'm up to, they are blown away by where I've been and what I've done. None of that would've been possible without the professors, administration, TAs and even peers that are willing to put in the time and effort to help any student at CCIS.
The CCIS gave me more than just an education. The faculty and advisors worked hands-on with me to build a rewarding career and foster a deep passion. The CCIS was able to focus my ambition and energy into material success and incredible experiences, both on and off co-op.
I came into Northeastern with no programming experience; worried I would be leagues behind everyone else. Fundamentals of Computer Science I whipped me into shape; establishing solid code design habits that I still rely upon every time I program.
