Drexel University

March 23, 2016
Since its founding in the midst of the industrial revolution in 1891, Drexel University has emphasized its strengths in engineering, science and technology to train men and women to become leaders. In little over a century, Drexel University has transformed itself into a large, comprehensive institution committed to excellence in education, research and service to the engineering society and to the broader community. Although much has changed, the original mission of the university still rings true today.


For a weekend this spring, Drexel’s campus will be bustling with engineering students from universities throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Drexel’s American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) student chapter will host the annual 2016 Mid-Atlantic Region Student Conference which will bring over 300 students from 14 universities to Drexel to participate in this 3-day conference. This conference includes social activities and team competitions where students will compete to win the title of Mid-Atlantic Region champions. Read More


“We defined diversity as a core value rather than a goal because we wanted the idea to permeate the culture of the College,” says Dean Joseph Hughes. “It isn’t just about who we recruit for students and faculty. It’s about creating a community where meaningful interactions can occur among people who view the world from different perspectives. It’s about creating an environment of optimal academic and social experiences that supports the co-mingling of ideas.” Read More


Experts from Drexel University’s College of Engineering and The University of Pennsylvania’s Institute for Urban Research will join others from cities around the country as participants in a White House initiative to make universities and their host municipalities partners in using technology to solve the challenges that face our nation’s growing urban areas.

The White House’s Smart Cities Forum named Drexel and Penn two of the 25 founding partners in the $160 million initiative called the MetroLab Network. The Network will support shared research and collective problem solving among universities and their home cities. Penn and Drexel join universities in 20 cities and counties who will work together to tackle challenges such as reducing traffic congestion, fighting crime, fostering economic growth, managing the effects of a changing climate and improving the delivery of city services.

Program Overview

Electrical Engineering

The Electrical Engineering track combines topics in power engineering, controls and robotics. The electrical engineering courses include the study of electromagnetic energy conversion, smart power devices and interconnected power system technology. The controls and robotics courses cover a broad array of topics, including data acquisition, sensing, actuation, modeling of dynamic systems, planning and optimization, decision and estimation, adaptation and machine learning, motors, and microcontrollers.

Mechanical Engineering

Drexel Mechanical Engineers cultivate essential problem-solving skills and become proficient in the art and science of the design and synthesis of mechanical components and systems. The Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics (MEM) provides an innovative and flexible curriculum, offering undergraduate students the unique opportunity to specialize in the areas of manufacturing, aerospace, robotics, automotives, high-performance materials, alternative energy and green technology, with interdisciplinary applications such as working in nanotechnology or creating artificial organs that are in demand in both academia and industry. Our graduates move onto to promising engineering careers and many move on to become CEOs, professors, doctors, lawyers and more.

Computer Engineering

Drexel’s Computer Engineering undergraduate program applies principles of physics and mathematics to the design, implementation and analysis of computer and communication systems. The discipline spans topics such as the design of digital systems, computer architecture, the design of microprocessors embedded in a larger system, computer networks and computer security. Specializations include applications of computers in control systems, digital signal processing, telecommunications, power systems and very large scale integrations (VLSI) systems design.
