Program Objectives

This program is offered on the Main Campus with some courses available at Temple University Ambler. Students may complete all required coursework at night on the main campus. The curriculum in Engineering Technology provides a broad base of technological skills extending across the traditional fields of engineering technology with a concentration designed by the student and faculty advisor to meet personal and career objectives. A plan of study can be developed with a focused track such as construction, environmental, computer, mechatronics, or energy. Mechatronics is only available at the campus of Lehigh Carbon Community College.

The Engineering Technology Program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

 

University Requirements

All new students are required to complete the university's General Education (GenEd) curriculum.

All Temple students must take a minimum of two writing-intensive courses as part of the major. The specific writing-intensive courses required for this major are listed below and are identified by "WI" in the Attribute column.

Cooperative Education Programs

A Cooperative Education (Co-op) is an optional program available at the College of Engineering where you have the opportunity to gain professional work experience before graduation. It is designed to give you the chance to apply the knowledge learned in the classroom to real life problems. You will be exposed to the latest technology and new ideas at a worksite helping you understand your field of work more extensively. During the Co-op, you will make valuable connections with professionals in your field. A cooperative education can enhance and strengthen you academically, professionally and personally.

Below is the five-year curriculum for the Co-op program leading to the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology. The minimum requirement for graduation is 127 semester hours.
