In January 2020, following more than one year of conversations, planning and collaborative effort of our faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends, we launched Drexel Engineering’s new strategic plan, “Building on Tradition for Tomorrow: Engineering Our Future Together.” 

Initially, this work served as a critical mechanism of self-assessment and reevaluation of our college’s mission and goals. Today, it acts as a valuable roadmap in the implementation of our efforts to reimagine engineering education, and remain flexible and responsive in adapting our curricula and support systems to match student and workforce needs.

Our work is guided by the call: to respond efficiently to rapid change; to provide the tools and approaches for maximum impact on creating a sustainable future; to promote collaborative engineering solutions; and to advance engineering education through research on engineering pedagogy.

Aligning our efforts within this framework is how we will deliver on our mission, how we will provide a distinctly Drexel engineering experience and how we will build on our tradition for a better tomorrow as we collaborate and innovate together.
