Welcome to Drexel University’s Graduate Program pages.
Graduate study provides an opportunity to gain knowledge in a particular discipline, engage in research and explore new possibilities. Whether your goal is to continue with research or to advance your career we offer a variety of programs to meet your needs and to help you achieve your goals. At the College of Engineering (CoE), we are committed to bringing new knowledge and practical solutions to complex societal problems. We offer a variety of disciplines which include technical fields and professional studies, with specialized offerings in both the M.S and Ph.D programs. Whether you are looking to advance your career or deepen your understanding in a particular field at the College of Engineering, we offer graduate degree programs that will help you meet the demands as a researcher or professional.
The Masters programs provide maximum flexibility and are offered full time and part-time, on-site and online. Our Masters of Science programs include a combination of core and technical courses; laboratory experiences, cooperative education, master’s thesis and independent research that may all be counted towards the degree program. Every student will work with an advisor to ensure academic success and growth, and to construct a program plan that is right for them. In addition, we offer a multitude of concentrations and certificate options.
Doctoral programs are offered at the College for students who wish to pursue rigorous research in a specific engineering discipline under the guidance of one of our leading faculty researchers. Together, faculty and doctoral students work collaboratively on exciting research projects. You are encouraged to visit our faculty pages to explore areas of specialized research that may align with your academic interests. Doctoral students have many opportunities to work as a teaching or research assistants or with the community as part of a grant or community focused research project such as GK -12, or GAANN programs.
The CoE has an exceptional community of faculty, researchers and practitioners committed to educating engineering leaders of the future. The graduate community on campus is very engaged and fostered by rigorous academic pursuits, active student groups and organizations. Our alumni find employment in academia, industry, and professional organizations. All in all, Drexel University’s College of Engineering offers more than just an education, it represents diversity and discovery in every aspect of engineering education.
In closing, I’d like to welcome you again to the College of Engineering website and encourage you to review our graduate and department pages to learn more about our programs.
