The College of Engineering

The College of Engineering has played a vital role in the success of Drexel University for more than a century. Over the past decade, the College has experienced enormous growth in research activities, as well as construction of major facilities.

About the College

Drexel University’s College of Engineering has emphasized its strengths in engineering, science and technology to train students to become the leaders of the future. In little over a century, Drexel University has transformed itself into a large, comprehensive institution committed to excellence in education, research and service to the engineering society and to the broader community. Although much has changed, the original mission of the University still rings true today.

As Drexel moves into 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.

The graduate programs at Drexel College of Engineering integrate evolving engineering science with the growing fields of engineering applications and processes. The Software Engineering and Engineering Management programs are offered in concert with other Drexel University colleges.

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.
