Welcome to the Graduate Engineering program at Villanova University! You have chosen wisely to pursue your master’s degree or doctorate here among a dedicated, caring faculty at one of the fastest growing engineering research programs in the country. At Villanova, we are well known for our personal attention to students and it shows in our engineering laboratories and classrooms where courses are taught by faculty who are experts and expert practitioners in their fields. Our award-winning E-Learning program will allow you to learn on campus or in distance mode; same class, same professor—and all students, those on campus and remote—have access to recorded materials.

Our innovative research is incorporated into the classroom with applications covered in each class so you can “apply tomorrow what you learned tonight.” And because Engineering has never been so multifaceted, all our programs have extensive opportunities for students to study cross-disciplinary subjects while earning their certificate or degree.

What really makes Villanova Engineering distinctive are the principals of Veritas, Unitas, and Caritas (truth, unity, and love), which create an environment that fosters exciting opportunities for learning and growth. We value and seek to empower all members of our community to develop their potential, bring their full self to the goals of the College, and engage in a community of inclusion.

I wish you the very best as you embark on your educational pathways in Engineering at Villanova!
