Through our E-Learning program, professors and students who are separated by physical distance are able to bridge the instructional gap and can complete a graduate engineering degree entirely online. Whether you are pursuing a graduate certificate or a master’s degree, our online degree program 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. In fact, because our program is synchronous, you’re welcome to attend class on campus whenever your schedule permits!
Your diploma will not indicate that you completed your degree via "E-Learning," it will simply reflect that you earned your degree from Villanova University’s College of Engineering.
The following includes important information regarding the University’s authorization status, students’ responsibilities related to relocation and programs leading to professional licensures, and the complaint process for online students.
Technical "how-to" information for the College of Engineering's E-Learning program.

"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."
