Overview

A Leading Engineering School

Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is home to a College of Engineering that is a leader. It is the 3rd largest engineering program in the country and has consistently ranked among the top 100 engineering schools in the country by "U.S. News and World Report."

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, within the College of Engineering, is a well-funded department with broad areas of expertise. The department's major sponsors are the National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institutes of Health (NIH), U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command, Office of Naval Research, and Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Laboratories

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering covers 6 research areas: computer engineering; control, robotics, and intelligent systems; electrophysics; image and signal processing and interpretation; power engineering and energy; and telecommunications and networking.

The department offers a doctoral program in electrical and computer engineering and master's degrees in electrical engineering, telecommunications engineering, software engineering, computer engineering, and cybersecurity

The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering

Drexel University offers a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (M.S.E.E.). Graduate students may earn their M.S.E.E. degrees without choosing specializations, or they may specialize in one of 4 areas: electrophysics; controls, robotics, and intelligent systems; power engineering; and signal/image processing. A minimum of 30 of the 45 quarter credits are taken within the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, while 15 may be taken from other departments or institutions.

MSEE/Telecommunications Engineering

Drexel offers a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering/Telecommunications Engineering (M.S.E.E.T.) degree program which students can complete in 3 years of part-time study or 2 years of full-time study. Students complete 6-month paid internships through Drexel's Graduate Co-op program or projects in telecommunications.

The Master of Science in Software Engineering

The Master of Science in Software Engineering (M.S.S.E.) degree is a multidisciplinary university degree sponsored by the College of Science, the College of Engineering, and the College of Information Science and Technology. Students complete 6 required courses and then choose from one of 3 tracks: information science and technology, computer science, and engineering.

Students in the information science and technology track complete coursework in human-computer interaction, the software engineering process, and the evaluation of information systems. They choose from electives in database management and distributed computing and networking. Students who choose computer science may focus on computing systems, programming languages, user interface software, database systems, artificial intelligence, and scientific computation. Students in the engineering track complete coursework in electrical and computer engineering, mechanical engineering and mechanics, materials engineering, chemical engineering, and civil engineering.

The Master of Science in Computer Engineering

The Master of Science in Computer Engineering (M.S.C.P.E.) is a 45 quarter-credit program that may be completed with or without a thesis. Students may also take part in a 6-credit 6-month Graduate Co-op paid internship by working on a computer engineering project for an industry. Students take 2 core courses in high-performance computer architecture and computer networking, as well as one of the 3-course sequences in computer engineering.

The Master of Science in Cybersecurity

Drexel University offers a Master of Science (M.S.) in Cybersecurity degree program. Students may not only complete 6-month internships in industry as part of this program, but they also participate in a unique research rotation that provides them with experience in 2 or more laboratories that investigate emerging cybersecurity topics.

The Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering

Drexel University offers a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering degree program. Students complete candidacy exams after earning 30 quarterly credits with grade point averages of 3.4 or above, thesis presentations, and dissertation defenses.

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering's Prestigious Faculty

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering include highly accomplished faculty members. Dr. Bruce Eisenstein served as a NASA/ASEE Fellow at Stanford University and Ames Research Center and as president of the IEEE. Professor Eisenstein has authored about 50 papers in pattern recognition, deconvolution, digital signal processing, and biomedical engineering.

Professor Eli Fromm has published approximately 70 papers and received awards from the IEEE, the National Academy of Engineering, the Smithsonian Institution, and other professional and educational organizations.

Wide-ranging Departmental Research Interests

Departmental research interests focus on a wide variety of topics, such as: advanced communication systems (including mobile, Internet-based, and ad hoc networks, as well as large-scale network modeling and simulation), intelligent dynamical systems, high-speed and fault tolerant computing, nanotechnology, photonics, smart and adaptive antennas and antenna arrays, image and signal processing, proteomics and flow cytometry, and power and energy.

Extensive Research Facilities

The department's 21000 square feet of research facilities include a wireless systems laboratory, a communication and signal processing laboratory, a millimeterwave/lightwave engineering laboratory, a center for electrical power engineering, a data fusion laboratory, and a music entertainment technology laboratory.

Financial Aid at Drexel University

Drexel University offers generous financial aid to both master's and doctoral candidates. Graduate students typically serve as research and teaching assistants. Financial assistance includes stipends as well as full tuition support.
