Mohsen Alqunaie

Graduating senior Mohsen Alqunaie, E’21, has always been active in Northeastern campus life. From community service to athletics, he does it all, making the most of his college experience and truly embodying the university spirit. He’s a member of the Hall Council, Triathlon Team, Class of 2021 Senior Year Experience Board, and Northeastern’s student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers.

Mohsen has also pursued experiential learning opportunities at Northeastern to advance himself and his professional career. He’s been on co-op with Keolis Commuter Services, as well as the Public Works Department with the City of Boston. And last fall, he worked as a research assistant in the College of Engineering and analyzed the impact of COVID-19 on transit and mobility, focusing on Boston’s MBTA, highways, bike shares, and airlines. His enthusiasm for learning knows no bounds, and through his work experiences, he’s found his greatest passion in the field of civil engineering.

Not only does Mohsen commit his time to enhancing student programming as a leader on the Senior Year Experience Board, but he has generously made a gift to the College of Engineering, hoping to pay it forward to future engineering students. “I want to give future students more opportunities at Northeastern,” he says. “I also want to thank Northeastern for the incredible experience it has given me, and I hope the university keeps giving future students an amazing time.”

It’s graduates like Mohsen whose positivity, dedication, and philanthropy continue to inspire even after becoming an alumnus, leaving a legacy at Northeastern and exemplifying what it truly means to be a Husky.
