CO-OPERATIVE EDUCATION

Founded in 1919, Drexel's co-operative education program was one of the first of its kind, and it continues to be among the largest and most renowned.

Drexel Co-op is based on paid employment in practical, major-related positions consistent with the interests and abilities of participating students. The benefits are obvious—during their time at Drexel, students experience up to three different co-ops. Because of this, Drexel students graduate having already built a professional network, and they typically receive higher starting salaries than their counterparts from other schools.

Through the co-op program:
Students choose from more than 1,200 employers in 35 states and 35 international locations, or conduct an independent search.
The average paid six-month co-op salary is more than $16,000.
Co-op students are entrusted with projects vital to the day-to-day functioning of the workplace.
Students obtain positions with major corporations such as GlaxoSmithKline, Unisys Corporation, Microsoft, Lockheed Martin, Comcast, and QVC, Inc.
Drexel's Steinbright Career Development Center (SCDC) provides students with invaluable resources, including career counseling, workshops, job fairs, and résumé reviews.

RESEARCH

Drexel is a world-class comprehensive research institution committed to use-inspired research with real-world applications, and the University's research activities result in more than $110 million in annual expenditures for sponsored projects.

Research at Drexel is driven by faculty from all disciplines. Medical and health sciences research complements traditional strengths in engineering, biotechnology, basic science, information science, and business, alongside innovative scholarship in media arts and design, the social sciences, education, and law. The Office of Research at Drexel University is committed to facilitating these research efforts.

Clear examples of the University's interdisciplinary approach to research can be seen in efforts to meet emerging national imperatives to upgrade the transportation infrastructure, move alternative energy sources into the mainstream, and invent the means to improve medical care while reducing its costs. The University has also established major research initiatives in engineering cities, plasma medicine and biology, and neuroengineering.

CITY LIVING

Drexel's hometown of Philadelphia is one of the nation's first and largest cities, and the birthplace of the American experiment.

The city offers opportunities to learn, play, work, and engage in the arts, history, and culture. Philadelphia encompasses Fairmount Park, the largest urban park system in the country; is home to hundreds of neighborhoods, each with its own distinct personality and attractions; and is close to the best that the area has to offer, from farmers' markets in Lancaster County to snow sports in the Pocono Mountains to the boardwalks of the New Jersey shore. It's also conveniently located between New York City and Washington, D.C.

Drexel students can access Philadelphia's many attractions through region-specific courses (often including field trips), a comprehensive transportation network, and Drexel's three Philadelphia campuses. Students who live on campus participate in residence hall-sponsored excursions and daily activities that take them into the city's neighborhoods and communities. Off-campus students can take advantage of the hous

UNDERGRADUATE ACADEMICS

Drexel challenges students to apply the knowledge and skill they gain in the classroom to practical situations. Classes are taught by accomplished faculty, most of whom are working professionals in their fields, bringing a depth of knowledge that can only come from experience. Students also have access to a range of extracurricular research and academic opportunities.

Academic Programs — Drexel offers over 70 undergraduate majors and more than a dozen accelerated degree programs across 13 different colleges and schools.

Drexel Co-op — Co-operative education allows students to apply what they've learned in the classroom to the real world, providing up to 18 months of paid experience.

Pennoni Honors College — In addition to being the home of the Honors Program and the interdisciplinary Custom-Designed major, the Pennoni Honors College includes programs that serve the entire community, such as the Cultural Passport, the Great Works Symposium, and the Office of Undergraduate Research.
