Civil Engineering Alumni Organization

The Northeastern University Civil Engineering Alumni Organization (NUCEAO) was formed in 1978 to assist engineering students and to expand the capabilities and resources of the Northeastern University student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers.

It forms the core of the civil and environmental engineering alumni base and provides a range of support for the department, including providing speakers for the departmental and student organization seminars, mentors for current student activities, and generous donations.

2023 Outstanding Alumni Award Recipient

Mark Haley, E’71

Mark Haley has built a nearly five-decade career in geotechnical engineering, with a focus on waterfront projects, real estate development, transportation, and institutional projects. He draws inspiration from collaborating with colleagues and clients to tackle tough engineering and construction challenges, including deep excavations, foundation design and construction, geotechnical instrumentation, and site remediation.

Mark’s passion for engineering stems from his upbringing. He grew up at Haley & Aldrich, working alongside his dad and company co-founder, Jim Haley (Northeastern University class of ‘39) on tasks that ranged from hand-coloring soil profiles and conducting laboratory soil testing to cleaning office floors. His passion deepened as a student at Northeastern, where Mark focused on civil engineering. He then furthered his education at MIT, earning an SM degree in geotechnical engineering.

As an alumnus, Mark takes great pride in the firm’s work for Northeastern over the years. The university’s exclusive provider of geotechnical and environmental services, Haley & Aldrich has shaped more than 100 projects on campus, helping it grow into a leading research institution with top-rate instructional spaces and student housing. Mark has contributed to projects that include the Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex, which met the school’s long-term aim to link its Huntington Avenue campus with buildings along Columbus Avenue — and which fosters collaborative research in the disciplines Mark studied during his own time at the university. Currently, Mark is consulting on foundation renovations for the school’s historic Matthews Arena.

Many Northeastern engineering students have also benefited from Mark’s expertise through the school’s co-op program, which has brought scores of budding engineers to Haley & Aldrich. Mark appreciates opportunities to mentor both at Haley & Aldrich and in the broader Boston community.
