|Admissions and Financial Aid
The general admissions requirements and general information on financial aid for Drexel graduate students are outlined here. Applicants to the department usually hold an undergraduate degree in electrical or computer engineering, or the equivalent. Students who have a bachelor's degree in another engineering discipline or in a science may also be able to qualify for the program by taking the necessary prerequisites. (Such students are encouraged to apply, but, they should understand that they will be required to complete additional engineering courses.) Students may apply to begin in any of Drexel's four terms: fall, winter, spring, and summer. The department offers teaching and research assistantships.
