Full Time, Part Time, and Online™: Grow on Your Terms.
Villanova’s College of Engineering offers you more than one way to earn an advanced degree. Our graduate programs deliver a world-class education to professionals who have jobs, students who might need financial help, and people who live far away or have unusual schedules. You can pursue any of our graduate engineering degrees, including a PhD, on a part-time or full-time basis. Whatever your path, we will help you succeed every step of the way.
The College of Engineering’s full-time program offers the fastest track for a graduate degree and the greatest opportunity for financial assistance. As a full-time student, you will perform cutting-edge research in world-class labs with expert faculty. You also will be eligible for teaching and research assistantships. Graduate assistants are paid a $14K stipend plus tuition.
If your schedule is too busy for you to attend classes full time, you can still earn many of our graduate degrees without having to put your life on hold. Our flexible part-time program is identical to our full-time program in terms of courses, caliber, and faculty. In as little as one night per week, or in some cases, on weekends only, you can earn your graduate degree and create challenging opportunities for yourself.
Our award-winning Distance Education Program is revolutionizing the academic world. With full programs online and technology that gives you access to course materials and lectures 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, anywhere in the world, you can expand your skills on nights, weekends, and anytime in between. Through the use of video teleconferencing and the latest rich-media Web broadcast, you can move at the pace that your lifestyle and schedule permit. Whether you are on your lunch break, at home in your pajamas, at the beach, or on the other side of the world, you can be earning your graduate degree.
