Distance Education Program

Through our E-Learning program, professors and students who are separated by physical distance are able to bridge the instructional gap. Whether you are pursuing a graduate certificate or a master’s degree, this method of instruction provides the flexibility you need, without compromising the quality of your education.

E-Learning students have identical course material, instructors and semester pacing as students in the on-campus classroom. Your diploma will not indicate that you completed your degree via "E-Learning." Just as every other student in the program, you will have earned your degree from Villanova University’s College of Engineering.

Options and Opportunities

  • Participate in real-time by logging in from anywhere in the world with internet access.
  • Access archived class material at your convenience, 24/7.
  • Download class material so you can review it anywhere – no connection required.
  • Earn your degree entirely online or supplement online courses with those on campus.
  • Access your lectures years from now. Your class is a virtual reference library.

"I'm going to watch the lecture later tonight - the advantage of your technology!  This format is the only way I'm able to do this program.  Working full time, wife, house, one year old....I never thought a 'real'' masters would be an option for me."
