Message from the Department Head

I take great pleasure in welcoming you to the Department of Engineering Management Studies. 

The department combines four respected and productive programs – Construction Management, Project Management, Systems Engineering, and Engineering Management – to provide unique opportunities and options for our students to customize plans of study that will address their specific career goals. These four programs share an affinity based on their respective missions, the nature of the industries they support, and the composition of their students. They are technically-driven, action-focused, and prepare students for leadership roles in their respective industries.  At the undergraduate level these programs provide exceptional opportunities for students to expand their academic experiences and obtain skill sets that differentiate them from their peers.

The faculty and staff possess a wealth of knowledge and experience in their industries and are on the cutting edge of their respective disciplines. This knowledge transcends into the classroom, providing students with a unique learning experience. We are committed to being the preeminent center for the advancement and dissemination of knowledge in the disciplines we serve.  We expect our students to leave Drexel with an entrepreneurial spirit, ready to embrace industry challenges and lead it far into the future.

I trust that you share my excitement for the potential that exists as these programs come together to provide the academic background and practical skills for tomorrow’s industry leaders.

I hope you decide to accept the challenge.
