Domain User Accounts

The domain is used for manage the computers within the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Drexel University.  Access to the domain and domain resources is available to all members of the Materials department, and includes access to shared computers, network file storage, automated network backup solutions, collaborative storage for research groups, and shared printing facilities.


The College is currently in the process of migrating individual department domains over to the COE domain.  If you have a PC still attached to the MSE domain, please contact the COE Computing and Technical Services group.

Linked Drexel Domain Accounts

Drexel Domain Account

For users who have joined the department after Spring Term of 2012, your Drexel domain username will be linked to MSE domain resources instead of having a separate MSE domain username.  This was done in an effort to reduce the number of logins you have to remember, and to allow users to take advantage of Drexel's helpdesk for issues such as accounts management and password resets.

There is no difference between entering your username as drexel\abc123 or — they are equivalent for authentication purposes.

Issues with your account, including password resets, are handled by Drexel's Office of Information Resources and Technology (IRT), which can be reached by email at or by phone at (215) 895-2020.  IRT does not control access to MSE or COE domain resources.
