According to MSNBC, UD is ranked a top 25 US public college that “Pays Off the Most.” In fact, 97% of our Engineering students are either employed or pursuing additional education within six months of graduation. (See for more details.)

Our success rate is high because
UD is dedicated not only to ensuring our graduates have a top-quality education but that they have what they need to be successful beyond our campus. One way we do that is through our Scholars and Fellows programs, designed to help students think beyond their major and push the boundaries of their intellectual curiosity. These programs will keep you intellectually active while you develop specialized skills and career connections and strengthen your résumé. You can:
• Immerse yourself in global experiences beginning with your first semester abroad
• Receive funding to launch a start-up
• Engage in community initiatives
• Tackle the most pressing concerns of our day like cybersecurity
• Explore and advocate for new approaches to disability
