Student Experience

Student Experience

Ask a random student to sum up the experience here at the College of Engineering and they’ll likely give you three words: rigor, co-ops, and city.

College of Engineering's academic rigor is recognized nationwide, with seven departmental programs ranked in the country’s Top 55.

Through our celebrated co-op program, you can land paid internships in your field of interest – or out of it. Examples? Tesla. Boeing. Pfizer. NASA. And the list goes on.

Then there’s our hometown, the vibrant, multi-ethnic, thriving City of Philadelphia.

But don’t just take our word for it. Drexel is based in University City, which has the fastest-growing population of millennials anywhere in the country and the nation’s fourth-highest number of college students. Those are some serious statistics in our favor.
