B U I L D A R E S E A R C H A G E N D A T H A T A D D R E S S E S SOCIETY’S MOST PRESSING CHALLENGES The College of Engineering is uniquely positioned to address needs of the city, region, and beyond. The College will be a leader in Drexel’s “One University” transformation by combining its expertise with the strengths of the other colleges, and deepening its relationships with industry to develop at least three interdisciplinary research areas focused on critical societal challenges.

1

2

G O A L I

Establish the College among the Leading Voices on Energy and the Environment in the Nation.

By creating an Institute and working closely with the University’s other colleges to build broad public understanding of the scientific, public policy, financial, and political issues surrounding energy and the environment, the College will establish Drexel as a renowned authority on complex issues and a balanced and thoughtful party in the public debate that surrounds them.

Improve the Quality of Human Health by Establishing Drexel as a Leader in the Integration of Engineering and Health. Through expanded partnerships with the University’s academic health sciences colleges and external healthcare institutions, the College will develop new technologies, systems, and processes to improve human health.

3

Contribute to the Development of a Strong National Cyber-Infrastructure.

4

Integrate the College’s Research Agenda into all Levels and Years of Engineering Education.

In collaboration with other Drexel colleges and the University’s industry partners, the College will help develop secure, efficient, and reliable computing.

The College will develop introductory engineering courses for each of the primary research areas and introduce engineering students to other academic fields – such as policy studies, public health, design, and behavioral studies – that bear on each research area and reimagine the senior design project to reflect our research agenda.

G O A L II C R E A T E A B O U N D A R Y L E S S L E A R N I N G E N V I R O N M E N T AND EMPOWERING STUDENT EXPERIENCE We will intensify the impact of innovations in both curriculum and co-op, by changes we make in our culture and physical environment and blur the lines that traditionally divide academic settings, professional work environments, and student living. The College will also create a healthy work-life balance for students – one that provides more time for in-depth inquiry, collaboration, and creativity and helps build greater College spirit and cohesiveness. We will promote civic engagement among College students, faculty, and professional staff both for their education and well-being and as part of our commitment to the community in which Drexel resides. By building on our own history, partnering with Drexel colleges, and evolving our culture, the College will invigorate engineering education at Drexel.

1

2

Enrich Engineering Co-op through E-lear ning, Research, and Inter national Experie nces. The College will connect co-op experiences with the academic curriculum by creating online course components for students off campus during co-op terms and expand the number and variety of research co-ops and international co-op opportunities. We will create programming on leadership development, business planning, and product design that will be provided to students through co-op experiences, in classrooms, and online and establish a “Co-op Showcase” as a means for students to share their co-op experiences with faculty, staff, and other students.

3

Infuse Engineering and Technology Education Throughout the University to Promote Technological Literacy . Develop open enrollment courses, led by engineering faculty, that explain how engineering and technology impact individuals, societies, and the world. Use the ExCITe Center (Expressive and Creative Interaction Technologies Center) as a vehicle for introducing technology to students beyond the College of Engineering through multi-disciplinary, collaborative projects. Expand the College’s participation in EPICS (Engineering Projects in Community Service), which brings together teams of students from different Drexel colleges to assist local not-for-profit organizations in addressing their technological and business challenges.

G O A L II

Expand Online Course Of ferings and the Use of E-lear ning Technologies .

Utilize online, hybrid, and e-learning technologies to enhance undergraduate and graduate courses and create online Drexel courses that College students can take while pursuing international study, work, or other experiences. Establish a focus in the College on engineering e-learning research and innovation that will develop student-centered best practices for teaching engineering via the Internet. Create new online degree programs for those seeking advanced education in engineering and continue the College’s work with local K-12 teachers on curriculum development to expand the number and variety of online education modules for use in STEM education.

4

Incorporate Inter national Experiences into the College’s Curriculum, Research, and Co-op Experiences . Partner with selected foreign institutions to establish articulation agreements that would assure the transferability of coursework College students complete abroad and create courses – broad enough to apply to students in all engineering fields – that could be offered overseas and would fulfill Drexel engineering requirements. Develop an international version of Drexel’s STAR program (Students Tackling Advanced Research) that will place College students in research labs abroad.

The University has staked out ambitious plans to create a dynamic urban, mixed-use neighborhood in University City on twelve acres between Drexel and 30th Street Station. The College of Engineering has an opportunity to be a leader in the creation of the Innovation Neighborhood while collaborating with the other Drexel colleges on initiatives that support the College’s new vision and that of the University as a whole.

1

G O A L III

Leverage the College’s New Research Initiatives to Suppor t the Innovation Neighborhood.

Establish Energy and the Environment as the first resident of the Innovation Neighborhood. Over time, relocate the College’s other new research initiatives to the Innovation Neighborhood. Leverage the ExCITe Center to promote the Innovation Neighborhood and model Drexel’s One-University theme. Attract leading technology firms and related enterprises to the Neighborhood.

2

Ensure that the College’s Space in the Innovation Neighborhood Fosters Innovation and Strengthens its Sense of Community. Establish new facilities for the College that significantly expand its footprint and provide flexible, state-of-the-art classroom, laboratory, and business incubator space. Additionally, incorporate “third spaces” – places where Engineering students can connect living and learning by integrating teaching, research, collaboration, socializing, and living. Promote imagination and creativity between students of many disciplines in their learning and living spaces.

G O A L IV R E D E S I G N T H E C O L L E G E ’ S FINANCIAL ARCHITECTURE The College of Engineering must significantly grow its operating resources and build its financial assets to achieve its new vision. The College will increase its research funding, leverage intellectual property, expand reach and enrollment through online learning, and seek transformative levels of private support from individuals, foundations, and corporations.

1

Diversify and Expand the College’s Research Funding.

2

Grow Online Lear ning.

3

Deeply Engage Philanthropic Suppor ters to Grow the College’s Endowment.

The College will expand relationships with industry to substantially increase corporate funding for research and increase efforts to monetize the commercial value of College intellectual property. In addition, we will work to explore ways in which the College can significantly increase federally funded research, recognizing that there is significant competition for a declining amount of total public research support.

Establish deeper partnerships with Drexel Online Learning to develop ways in which the College can significantly expand its on-line presence. Pilot experimental approaches to online engineering education that would allow the College to virtually enroll greater numbers of students. Grow enrollment by expanding the number of professional master’s programs offered online.

G O A L IV Enlarge significantly the pool of prospective donors and engage them actively in strengthening the College’s financial foundation. Promote naming opportunities for the College, its departments, professorships, and scholarships. Coordinate fundraising initiatives with those of the University to build the College’s endowment to support financial aid, scholarship, and strategic objectives.
