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. 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. This program is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission (TAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET).
