The current and forward thinking curriculum with access to industry experts as professors played a large role in my decision to attend. In addition, Villanova's proximity to where I live combined with the ability to attend most of the classes remotely provided me with the needed flexibility and convenience. I attempted to attend class in person as much as possible but travel for work and took advantage of the distance learning option multiple times.
MS in Sustainable Engineering (MSSE) '14
The professors want to help you and see you thrive in this field. If it were not for them, I would not have ended with where I am today―in a job that I am excited to go to each and every day.
MS in Civil Engineering (Focus on Transportation Engineering) '14
Probably the number one reason I chose Villanova over other schools is the reputation of the University. When doing my research and submitting applications, I found there was not a ranking system out there that doesn’t regard Villanova among the top institutions. I was thrilled to have been accepted and proud to have completed the program. The experience was engaging, very personal, undeniably beneficial and offered more than I could have expected when I first started. It’s not often that my optimistic foresight is met so positively in actuality, and I am so happy that this was one of those times.
