RISE, the Research, Innovation, Scholarship and Entrepreneurial Expo,is the showcase for the cross-disciplinary research and creative projects being undertaken by Northeastern’s solution-focused, leading-edge students, faculty, and staff. A decade old, RISE is the largest event of its kind in the nation, as nearly 400 presenters, over 100 judges, and 1000+ attendees join us for this annual event.

We congratulate all the participants from the School of Architecture. Even during this more challenging year, our students had great success at the expo! See the list of award winners from our program below.
