The College of Engineering

About the College

The College of Engineering prepares a new generation of engineers dedicated to discovery and the application of technology to promote economic development and improve quality of life.

Drexel University’s College of Engineering is guided by five core values that shape the curriculum and experience for all students: excellence in academics and research; personal, intellectual and professional development; diversity; innovation and exploration; internal and external collaborations and partnerships. We provide a research agenda for our PhD students that addresses society’s most pressing challenges regionally, nationally and globally. Our Master of Science students are trained in strategic leadership and entrepreneurial risk-taking to address the opportunities and challenges of a rapidly changing industry. 

The graduate programs at Drexel College of Engineering integrate evolving engineering science with the growing fields of engineering applications and processes. As Drexel moves though the 21st century, the College of Engineering will continue to offer students a diverse academic learning and research environment, while continuing to build on its national reputation for excellence in engineering and research.

About Graduate Co-op

Drexel University’s long tradition in the field of experiential learning has now been extended into many of its master’s programs in science, business, and engineering.

This option, called the Graduate Co-op Program (GCP), provides students with the opportunity to gain work experience directly related to their career goals while earning academic credit. Students who have earned a minimum of 24 credits with a GPA of at least 3.0 are eligible to participate. Employment typically lasts six months, during which students enroll in a special 3 credit GCP course coinciding with their term of employment. Students gain work experience while earning salaries. It is important to note that the GCP program does not guarantee a job. It is a market-driven process for the candidates as well as employers. GCP provides the tools and contacts; the student must qualify for the job on the basis of merit, qualifications, and skills.

Further information on the GCP program is available at the Drexel Steinbright Career Development Center.
