Master of Transdisciplinary Science Computing and Engineering Design

Transcend Program Drexel

Introducing the Master’s in Making

Emerging industries, such as consumer robotics, wearables, and the “Internet of Things,” require knowledge of both technology and creative design. CEOs consistently rate creativity as the most sought-after trait in their employees.

The Charles D. Close School of Entrepreneurship and The ExCITe Center have launched TranSCEND, a Master of Science program enabling students to create the devices of tomorrow, today.

TranSCEND MS is an intensive, full-time program emphasizing learning through world-ready projects and collaborative experiences with world-class faculty. A key component of the program is direct industry engagement through a 6-month graduate co-op (extended paid internship) at a company. More and more, companies seek hybrid employees combining both technical and creative skills, capable of communicating and collaborating across disciplines. We created the TranSCEND Masters program to provide these experiences for the emerging tech and design leaders of the future.

Program Vision

We believe that making is problem solving through a hands-on process informed by the latest technologies. Being a maker of things means being engaged, reflective, curious, and entrepreneurial. We believe making is done best in a transdisciplinary environment where everyone can share ideas and combine their diverse skills and perspectives in novel and untravelled directions. Such a space creates opportunities for individuals and projects that do not fit into traditional, constrained fields.
