Drexel TPED Celebrates the Amusement Industry Everyday in Everyway!
We Strive to Accomplish a Variety of Goals:
1. Generating interest and expanding knowledge of the exciting field of themed entertainment amongst the Drexel University undergraduate students.
2. Facilitating hands-on learning, leadership, and exploration of the interdisciplinary nature of themed entertainment through industry-related projects led by student members.
3. Providing opportunities to professionally network and gain industry-relevant experience through international events and cooperative education employment.
4. Promoting Drexel University in the surrounding Philadelphia area and within the themed entertainment industry.
Our weekly meetings are always interactive. We discuss current industry news, hold concept design sessions, and investigate some of the relevant attractions and events that pop up in Philly from time to time. We also host special meetings like Triva Night, Movie Night, and Project Jams.
New Members are Always Welcomed!
We are lucky enough to have had the opportunity to speak with an array of successful industry professionals. In the past we have hosted Walt Disney Imagineers, Universal Creative Professionals, Six Flag Engineers, and many more!
We Welcome the Opportunity to Host Guest Speakers Whenever Possible!
We share our knowledge of and excitement for themed entertainment within the Philadelphia area via community service. In the past, we've partnered with local schools, where we explained how everyone can help in the creation of an attraction.
We are also involved with Drexel via Activity Fairs and Co-Sponsored Events!
We participate in local, national, and international theme park competitions. We have obtained many accolades over the years. The club prides itself in winning the first Ryerson Invitational Thrill Design Competition in 2014. At these competitions, club members display skills in teamwork, attraction design, and presentation.
We strive to challenge ourselves while learning the demands of this exciting industry!
