Accreditation

The Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org. The Construction Management Technology and Engineering Technology programs are accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

ABET is a non-profit and non-governmental accrediting agency for academic programs in the disciplines of applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology. ABET is a recognized accreditor in the United States by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.

 

Being introduced in the Fall of 2013, the Bioengineering program will seek accreditation as soon as it is possible.

Mission

The mission of the College of Engineering (COE) is to provide students with a high-quality, innovative, and globally-competitive learning experience in engineering, engineering technology, and the applied sciences. Engineering graduates are to be educated professionals with the technical, problem-solving, and communication skills required to succeed in the workplace and society. 

The college is mindful of its obligation to be an environment for the creation of knowledge, and it encourages basic and cross-disciplinary applied research by faculty and students.  We place great value on scholarship, practice, and service aimed at improving the quality of life and the economic viability of our society.  This value system is reflected in how we assess faculty for promotion and tenure and how we grade student work.

We strive to pursue these objectives in a learning environment that celebrates ethnic and gender diversity, respects experience, and encourages problem solving through teamwork.

The college offers undergraduate curricula in engineering and engineering technology. Our engineering programs, leading to the Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree, prepare students for positions in engineering that require a broad preparation in mathematics and the engineering sciences at the entry level. They are recommended for those who expect to become registered professional engineers, pursue an advanced degree, or become involved in conceptual design, planning, research, and development in industry. The programs in engineering technology, which lead to the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology degree, educate students for careers as engineering technologists. They participate as members of the engineering team, translating concepts into functioning systems and supervising subsequent implementation by technicians and craftsmen.

Graduates of the COE find employment in manufacturing, construction management, sales engineering, inspection and quality control, production engineering and management, research and development, purchasing, technical field services, application engineering, engineering design, computer systems and software manufacturing, and research or production involving computers. Following on-the-job experience, they can qualify for positions of a supervisory and managerial nature. Others may qualify as registered professional engineers.

Day and evening courses are offered at the Main Campus and at the Ambler Campus. All programs can be completed at the Main Campus.

Admission

Admission to the university does not guarantee admission to particular programs in the College of Engineering. Because programs in the college have varying admissions requirements, students should contact the Office of Undergraduate Studies, Room 349, for further information (215-204-2998).

Cooperative Education & Internship

Full-time matriculated College of Engineering students who have a GPA of 2.5 or greater and who have completed at least 30 semester hours (at least 12 at Temple) toward the baccalaureate degree may apply for paid cooperative work experience (full-time) during spring or fall semesters. Students work at least 35 hours per week and are considered full-time students at Temple University. It can take additional time to complete the degree when participating in this program, but at least one semester of relevant work experience is gained. College of Engineering students may register and receive technical elective credits for their work experience with the Co-op courses (Engineering 2181, 3181). These programs are managed by the Director of Recruiting and Co-op Programs in the College of Engineering, Room 349, phone: 215-204-2998.

Students may also receive relevant work experience through internships, which are normally available during the summer terms.  Because internships are offered over the summer, they allow students to finish in the traditional four years and still gain some on-the-job experience.

Program Information

Engineering

The programs in Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

All engineering programs lead to a Bachelor of Science degree in the following fields of study:

 

Bioengineering (B.S. BioE.)
Civil Engineering (B.S.C.E.)
Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.)
Engineering (B.S.E.)
Mechanical Engineering (B.S.M.E.)

These degree programs also offer concentrations in the following areas:

Environmental Engineering in B.S.C.E.

Computer Engineering in B.S.E.E.

Bioelectrical in B.S.E.E.

Bioengineering in B.S.M.E.

1. The total number of credit hours at graduation may be greater for some students based on initial placement exams, transfer evaluations, individual curricular choices, and academic progress.
2. Students must fulfill the necessary prerequisites for any given course or course sequence. See the Prerequisite and Co-requisite Policy in the university-wide Academic Policies section in this Bulletin.

3. The engineering programs are structured to prepare students for the professional practice of engineering and/or graduate study. The curricula emphasize a rigorous treatment of the mathematical and scientific approaches to the solution of engineering problems.

4. The final two years of study stress the synthesis of unique solutions rooted in the fundamental principles mastered during the first two years. These final years culminate in a design project.
