As a foundation element of our plan, we will realize the concept for a collaborative College of Design, Engineering, and Commerce. We will teach exceptional power in design process and thinking, well beyond the traditional product.

True innovation that changes the way we think and act is spawned at the intersection of business, engineering, and design.

By formalizing the integration of these disciplines we will re-write post-secondary education for the new century. The creation of a College of Design, Engineering, and Commerce will be at the heart of the academic experience, leading to success and leadership in the professions.

The Intersection of Design, Engineering and Commerce Building curriculum around achieving innovation.

At Philadelphia University, our goal is to promulgate an academic learning community that embraces all elements of the design, engineering and commerce curricula, where ongoing collaboration and teamwork are the keys to creating successful leaders.

Traditional design produces products that are safer, easier to use, aesthetically pleasing, highly cost effective, and environmentally friendly. Corporations have begun to realize that there is exceptional power in the design process, or design thinking, not just the product.

Design, as a discipline, contributes its process, which identifies the needs, opportunities, and applications of capabilities; design also serves as the integrator synthesizing the complementary design, engineering and commerce discipline methodologies.

Engineering applies the principles of mathematics and the laws of natural science to analyze, design, develop and devise improvements that benefit humanity. The engineering major provides for flexibility to address the unknown technical challenges that will confront society.

Commerce is the act of leading a team toward accomplishing a goal beyond the scope of individual effort with the intent of creating and capturing value. Business must be opportunity seeking, holistic in its approach to problem solving and driven to create and capture value for a broad set of stakeholders.
