Graduate Degrees

The future of engineering will be about collaboration.

As the traditional boundaries between disciplines continue to dissolve, engineers must learn to adapt. Advances in technology keep presenting new and more complex challenges, and solving those problems require tomorrow's engineering leaders to deepen their technical knowledge while also drawing from multiple perspectives.

At Widener's School of Engineering, graduate students are exposed to those perspectives through specialized training from teachers who bring a wealth of industry experience — and research — to the classroom.

Our diverse student body also comes from a variety of fields and work specializations.

Areas of Specialty

We offer master's degrees in the following core disciplines:

For students who wish to enhance their graduate education with study in other fields of inquiry, the School of Engineering offers a dual MEng/ MBA (Master of Engineering/ Master of Business Administration) degree. For engineers whose work touches upon environmental issues, programs in chemical engineering, civil engineering, and engineering management feature an option environmental engineering component.

Certificate programs, which blend theory and practice in land development and technology management, are also available.

International students who are academically prepared to pursue a university program, but are unable to meet the minimum English proficiency requirement, may apply to the International Study Center.

Flexibility

All graduate programs are offered in the evening. Students can choose to complete the program full-time or while working. Most full time students complete their graduate degree within two calendar years. Part-time students move at the pace allowed by their personal obligations, career goals, and professional commitments.

Non-degree students are those who are not formal degree candidates, and may take up to 9 credits in the non-matriculating status. All of these options require the completion of an online admission application.

Whether you are seeking career advancement, a change in focus, or enhancing your technical knowledge base, we can help you reach your goals. 

There's no need to interrupt your career to earn a master's degree in engineering. For the convenience of our students, Widener University, School of Engineering Graduate programs provide a flexible option for students that cannot attend every class meeting. All graduate courses are simulcast (offered in the classroom at the same time as they can be viewed online) and recorded for future reference for the students.

  • Classes will meet at their scheduled time and room.
  • Full-time students are expected to attend all classes
  • Part-time students are given additional flexibility in attending class.
  • Faculty will provide the students with a syllabus that reflects the attendance policy for their course.
