The Electrical Engineering program from Drexel University prepares students for careers in research and development, and aims to endow graduates with the ability to identify, analyze and address new technical and scientific challenges. 

Visit the official programme website for more information


A student's plan of study must contain a selection of courses from the department's offerings and may include appropriate graduate elective courses from other engineering departments or from physics or mathematics. Further information can be obtained from the department website or from the graduate advisor.

Key facts: 

Students are also encouraged to engage in thesis research. The combined thesis and research cannot exceed 9.0 credits. The MS program is organized so that a student may complete the degree requirements in less than 2 years of full-time study or 2-3 years of part-time study.

Students within the Electrical Engineering program from Drexel University  are eligible to take part in the Graduate Co-op Program, which combines classroom coursework with a 6-month, full-time work experience.

On-Campus work for International Students

F-1 and J-1 students are allowed to work on-campus while attending classes up to 20 hours a week. This work does not need to be related to your program of study, but you must maintain your student visa status while engaged in this type of work.
