Drexel Engineering takes great pride in our accomplished faculty. We encourage all of our faculty to seek out awards programs and recognitions, building up their awards portfolios towards more significant recognitions, such as Fellow and other prestigious honors.

Faculty can explore opportunities in our Awards Database and see which faculty have received recognition.
