Learning at a Distance

“I grew up in and presently live in Washington state with my wife and three children. I have enjoyed the flexibility to complete my studies while I am still working full time. Drexel has the premiere MS Engineering Management program in the country! My first interest at Drexel was engineering management and Drexel has the program that all others have followed. I later decided to also complete the MS Systems Engineering, which I have found to be exceptional.”

Immediate Impact

“I have already benefited from my systems engineering and engineering management classes by making some professional transitions. As I learned more about systems engineering, I was able to make a move from electrical engineering into a system engineering team lead role. That lead role stretched me and forced me to practice what I was learning at Drexel. My employer recently created a leadership development program, and I am fortunate to have been selected for the inaugural cohort. I am convinced that my studies at Drexel helped to uniquely qualify me for the leadership development program.”
