Prospective Graduate Students

Welcome. We are pleased you are considering Drexel’s College of Engineering to be a part of your future. In these pages you find information about our more than 25 graduate degree programs, our exciting research, and how to apply. 

Acceptance for graduate study at Drexel requires a four-year bachelor’s degree in a STEM or related field from an accredited institution in the US or equivalent international institution. A general guideline for regular acceptance is a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 in the last two years of undergraduate work. Individual programs and departments may have requirements exceeding this measure.  

The admission committee evaluates all credentials submitted by individual applicants to determine a student's ability and potential to succeed in graduate study. As part of the assessment, the committee is also interested in potential to contribute to the program of study, the department and to the University community.
