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

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.
