Drexel University

Co-operative Education

Drexel offers a variety of educational and employment opportunities to students through study and internship programs in Europe, Asia and Latin America, and the co-operative education ("co-op") program. The only mandatory co-op in Pennsylvania and one of three in the United States, Drexel's program is among the nation's oldest, largest and most respected.

The Steinbright Career Development Center (SCDC) is one of the most highly ranked co-op and career service organizations at any university in the country and works to ensure that students and alumni get the most from their experiential and career placement activities.

Philadelphia's Technological University

As Philadelphia's technological university and a leader in curricular innovation, Drexel has a history of integrating the latest technological advances into the learning process:
In 1983, Drexel became the first university to require all entering students to have microcomputers.
In 2000, Drexel became the first major university to operate a fully wireless campus, allowing students, faculty and staff to access the Internet from indoors and outdoors, anywhere on the University's three campuses.
In 2002, Drexel launched the first mobile Web portal service for students, enabling them to access a range of information via virtually any Web-enabled handheld device, from anywhere in the world.
The School of Education created the iPods in Education Grant [PDF] to involve upper-division (students who are sophomores, juniors and seniors) and graduate students in the integration of the iPod into the School of Education academic programs and into student studies.
Drexel Online

Drexel Online specializes in innovative, Internet-based distance education programs for working professionals and corporations in the US and abroad. A pioneer in online education, Drexel has offered programs online since 1996. Its programs are ranked by U.S. News & World Report among the "Best" in the fields of Business, Education, Engineering, and Library Science. Other bachelor's, master's, and certificate program areas include Nursing, Communications, Clinical Research, Psychology, Public Health, Information Systems, Toxicology and Industrial Hygiene.

Drexel Online programs follow the same policies and rigorous academic standards as the ones taught on campus at Drexel University. When you complete this program, your diploma and university transcript will be the same as those students who earn their degrees on campus.

Students are not left alone; our online learning method encourages interaction and networking among the select group of professionals who attend. A current Drexel Online student was quoted as saying "I had not envisioned the possibilities of online coursework being as interactive as this has been, and I am really impressed that the faculty has leveraged so many different ways to engage us."
