Since 1842, Villanova University’s Augustinian Catholic intellectual tradition has been the cornerstone of an academic community in which students learn to think critically, act compassionately and succeed while serving others. There are more than 10,000 undergraduate, graduate and law students in the University’s six colleges—the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the Villanova School of Business, the College of Engineering, the College of Nursing, the College of Professional Studies and the Villanova University School of Law. As students grow intellectually, Villanova helps prepare them to become ethical leaders who create positive change everywhere life takes them.
Villanova University is consistently ranked among the best in the nation:
Serving primarily the pharmaceutical industry, biochemical engineering is a niche discipline within the biomedical engineering field, which is ranked first on CNN Money’s list of the “Best Jobs in America” (2012). With solid earnings potential, a 10-year job growth rate estimated at 62%, and Villanova University’s proximity to more than 1,200 pharmaceutical companies in the Philadelphia region, there’s never been a better time to earn your graduate degree in this rapidly evolving field. Villanova’s Master of Science in Biochemical Engineering program focuses on the design and optimization of biopharmaceutical facilities, processes and products using state-of-the-art analysis and technology. Earning your graduate degree from Villanova University will fully prepare you to succeed in this high-demand field. Available on campus or entirely online, this degree can be earned at your convenience.

U.S. News & World Report ranks “Civil Engineer” among the top 10 technology jobs in 2013, and it appears 26th on the list of top jobs overall. With a variety of career paths available and projected employment growth of 19.4% (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2010-2020), it’s an excellent time to advance your career with a Master of Science in Civil Engineering (MSCE) from Villanova University. Graduate programs in Villanova’s College of Engineering offer a balance between theory and application, stress modern engineering methods for the solution of detailed and complex problems, and emphasize analysis and design coupled with engineering judgment. The MSCE program is for full-time students as well as working professionals who need a part-time schedule. Most courses are available through our E-Learning program, which offers much-needed convenience and flexibility.
The MSEE can be completed on a full- or part-time basis with graduate courses conveniently offered on weeknights. Most courses are available through the College of Engineering's E-Learning program as well, providing flexibility for working professionals.
To advance your career in this steadily growing field, earn a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (MSME) from Villanova University. Our program is modern, relevant, balanced and comprehensive; providing foundations in basic theory coupled with contemporary engineering topics. The program’s courses and research projects reflect the specialties of the College of Engineering’s highly distinguished and dedicated faculty, several of whom are nationally recognized leaders in their disciplines. In addition to the broad areas of thermal sciences, mechanics and materials, and dynamics and controls, courses are also offered in emerging fields like bioengineering and nanotechnology. Offered on campus part time or full time, and also available entirely online, this program is convenient for any schedule.
As the earth’s population grows and standards of living rise, engineers are being called to play a leadership role in sustainable development and to find solutions for global challenges such as depletion of resources, environmental pollution and damage to ecosystems. At the forefront of making decisions with long-term implications for the planet, engineers must not only meet today’s global human needs, but also provide sustainable access to the world's resources for generations to come. With increasing environmental regulations, a trend toward “green” methods and development, and a shift in emphasis toward preventing problems rather than controlling those that already exist, the field of sustainable engineering is expected to have 25 percent employment growth through 2016, much faster than the average for all occupations. Villanova’s Master of Science in Sustainable Engineering (MSSE) is a multi-disciplinary degree, ideal for those who are interested in gaining further expertise and knowledge with regard to the full environmental, social and economic aspects of sustainable engineering. This program is available to the non-engineering degree holder. Available on campus or entirely online, this degree can be earned at your convenience.
"Employment of environmental engineers is projected to grow 22 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations." --U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Specifically, the Bureau notes, “State and local government concerns regarding water should lead to efforts to increase efficiency of water use.” With increasing job opportunities, it’s an ideal time to advance your career in this field of engineering. Villanova's Master of Science in Water Resources and Environmental Engineering (MSWREE) program is nationally-recognized for its: Cutting edge research and collaborative opportunities in the Villanova Center for the Advancement of Sustainability in Engineering (VCASE), the Villanova Urban Stormwater Partnership (VUSP), and the campus's Green Infrastructure Stormwater Research Park. Distinguished leadership including VCASE and VUSP director Dr. Robert Traver, a sought-after stormwater expert and president of the American Academy of Water Resources Engineers; and Dr. Metin Duran, a nationally recognized environmental engineering expert in wastewater treatment and microbial water quality. As an added benefit, all MSWEE courses are taught in the evening, making the program convenient for both part-time and full-time students. All classes are also available through our E-Learning program.
