Drexel Materials Students and Alums Abroad

Our students and alumni hone their skills and share their knowledge beyond Drexel.

Many of our students take advantage of opportunities abroad, including both co-op abroad and study abroad.  These experiences vary from working in a research lab to studying in a classroom to employment at an international company.

Likewise, our alumni seek out opportunities to expand their world view and make a difference.  They can be found in the Peace Corps, pursuing their Ph.D.s, and working abroad.

I feel that Drexel has really prepared me for the classes I’m taking here, which are second year Master’s classes. I think this program is completely cohesive with Drexel’s Materials program and I know it’s going to be a great and rewarding experience. I’m meeting great people and seeing beautiful places, doing so many things I wouldn’t have been able to otherwise. read more »
