Chemical and Biological Engineering

In Chemical Engineering, the science gets applied to real products and real solutions that have the greatest impact on society. It is engineering that combines many different concepts and skill sets, and is broadly applicable. Find out more about how a Chemical Engineering degree from Drexel sets the foundation for your success across a spectrum of professions.

Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering

Many universities separate the disciplines of civil, architectural, and environmental engineering. Here at Drexel, we fold them together into one unified department because we believe that’s what produces the best engineer.

Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics

Mechanical engineers use the principles of energy, materials, and mechanics to design and manufacture machines and devices of all types. We explore how matter behaves at extremes and poke at the boundary between human activity and what machines can do. Traditional career pathways have broadened into new opportunities in biomechanics, high-performance computing, infrastructure systems, materials, and frontiers of human-machine interfaces for the benefit of humankind.
