Engineering Learning Community
The Engineering Learning Community (ELC) provides an opportunity for first-year engineering students to live and learn together. In the ELC, students come together with advisors, peers and upperclassmen to learn, socialize and support one another.
By joining the ELC, you have an opportunity to establish a sense of community with like-minded peers while receiving exclusive access to resources that are specifically designed to promote your transition to college.
If you become an ELC Member, you will:
- Live in a Drexel residence hall with other ELC Members;
- Take first-year engineering courses with other ELC Members;
- Benefit from exclusive tutoring and peer mentoring programs;
- Interact with College of Engineering students, organization leaders and upperclassmen;
- Gain access to ELC-specific social and professional events, such as game nights and engineering workshops.
To Apply for 2021-22 Academic Year

Do I have to live on campus to participate in the ELC?
I was planning to room with someone who is also attending Drexel this fall. Can we still live together if I'm accepted into the ELC program?
What if I get accepted into the Honors Program and the ELC. Can I do both?
I heard the ELC takes some classes together. Which ones?
Will I get to know students from other majors?
