Summer DELTA

The 2021 DELTA program will be held virtually from July 19 – July 30. Registration will open in late spring.

The Drexel Summer Drexel Engineering Leadership Transformation Academy (DELTA) program is a two-week residential program for approximately 30 incoming engineering students.  Invitations are sent to students from underrepresented groups in STEM: women, African Americans, American Indians/Alaska Natives, and Latinos.

Through basic math and science, engineering design, personal and professional development, and social activities, DELTA students start their freshmen year with a knowledge of Drexel, Philadelphia, and more of what to expect from the coming year.  Perhaps more importantly, they have a group of friends (both incoming and upper-class students) right from the start.

DELTA alumni remain very connected to their cohort throughout their time at Drexel.  They are always eager to volunteer as peer mentors to help the newest incoming group because they know the value of the program.
