Engineering Program

Goals, Objectives & Design Integration

The mission of the general Engineering Program at Temple University is to provide an excellent educational experience for its students. This experience includes an emphasis on the technical, communication, teamwork and life-long learning skills that graduate engineers need to succeed, in both the workplace and society in general. The general engineering program is structured to prepare the graduate for the practice of engineering and graduate school or professional programs in business, law and medicine. The curriculum emphasizes a rigorous treatment of the mathematical and scientific approach to the solution of engineering problems. The program has design across the curriculum and is capped with an integrated design experience in the form of a senior project.

The general Engineering Program shall produce graduates who:

  • have the theoretical and practical ability to research, analyze, design and evaluate engineering systems for modern practice and/or graduate and professional programs;
  • can communicate effectively in oral, written and electronic media and have the necessary teamwork and leadership skills to work and participate effectively in a team environment; and
  • are committed to life-long learning and continuous improvement and who can contribute to the economic, technical, social and educational development of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the country and the world.
