Note: Department chairs frequently change at the beginning of the academic year.  Students should contact departments for updated information.

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. Certain courses fulfill multiple requirements. In consultation with your advisor, you will be able to plan your curriculum more effectively.
3. Students must fulfill the necessary prerequisites for any given course or course sequence. See the Prerequisite and Co-requisite Policy in University-wide Academic Policies in this Bulletin.


The programs in Engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).  These programs lead to a bachelor's degree with concentrations in the following fields of study:

Civil Engineering (B.S.C.E.)
Electrical Engineering (with Computer Engineering Concentration) (B.S.E.E.)
Mechanical Engineering (B.S.M.E.)

(Note: The Environmental Engineering Technology program is no longer a field of study. Interested students are directed to the Civil Engineering Program).

The engineering programs are structured to prepare the graduate 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.

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

Program Goals, Objectives and Design Integration:

The objective of the Civil Engineering program at Temple University is to provide students with a broad knowledge of mathematics, physical and engineering sciences, computer utilization, communication skills, and societal factors from which students can synthesize unique solutions to relatively complex problems related to Civil Engineering. Since Civil Engineering professionals plan, design, construct, and operate facilities which are essential to the quality of modern life, the Civil Engineering curriculum is based upon providing a fully integrated design experience by beginning with introductory courses in the study of engineering history and economics, then progressing through a broad coverage of the primary areas of practice within Civil Engineering (surveying, structures, geotechnical engineering, construction engineering, water resources, transportation, and environmental engineering), and finishing with a year long capstone Civil Engineering senior design project. The goal of the Civil Engineering program is to prepare students to pursue graduate education in their specific areas of interest, seek professional licensing, and become involved in design, project planning and research.
