It is the mission of the College of Engineering (COE) to provide an affordable, high quality learning experience, and a supportive environment in engineering and engineering technology.. The College attaches importance to scholarship, teaching, discovery, research, practice, and service, all aimed at improving the quality of life and the economic viability of our society. Its aim is to promote lifelong learning, problem-solving abilities, and success for all who interact with the College.

The College offers undergraduate curricula in engineering and engineering technology,  and a variety of continuing education courses for non-degree students. The programs in engineering, leading to the Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree, prepare students for positions in engineering which 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 organizations applying computers for research or production. 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 Ambler Campus. All programs can be completed at the Main Campus.

Cooperative Education & Internship -

Full-time matriculated Engineering and Engineering Technology students who have a GPA greater than 2.5 and who have completed at least 60 semester hours (at least 12 at Temple) towards the baccalaureate degree may apply for paid cooperative work experience (full- or part-time) during six month or summer periods. This normally takes 5 years to complete the degree. Students who have completed the sophomore year of their program may apply for a paid internship for their junior and senior year. This program is managed by the Center for Student Professional Development. Work experience is gained in summers and throughout the academic year. The internship allows the student to finish in the traditional four years and still gain a year of experience. Engineering and Engineering Technology students may register and receive technical elective credits for their work experience with the courses ENGR 0380, 381, or 382 (2-4 s.h.).
