Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology in the College of Engineering emphasizes the practical over the theoretical. The 124-credit hour degree requires the study of basic differentiation and integration in calculus and applied engineering statistics. Students focus on hands-on, real-world technology solutions. In comparison, the Bachelor of Science in Engineering program requires complex math and more abstract design work.

Technologists—in high demand in a wide variety of industries—translate plans into functional prototypes. Often called applied engineers, engineering technologists use technical skills and applied engineering knowledge to build, install, repair and improve high-tech equipment and technical facilities.

Temple prepares you to apply engineering principles and technical skills to analyze and find practical solutions at the point of production. Some of your coursework will include applied strength of materials, applied material technology, applied engineering statics, applied fluid mechanics and more. You can also tailor your degree to your interests in one of several concentrations.


You can focus on Engineering Technology or choose one of the following concentrations.

    • Computer Technology Track
    • Construction Technology Track
    • Energy Technology Track
    • Environmental Engineering Technology
    • General Technology Track
    • Mechanical/Manufacturing Technology

Cooperative education (co-op) is an optional program that can provide you with the opportunity to work professionally before graduation. Students apply the knowledge they have learned in the classroom to real-world problems in the field. A co-op will help you create valuable connections with industry professionals, build a strong résumé and have an enhanced perspective on your field.

Our Academic Advisors

Through advising workshops, career coaching, individual appointments and walk-in advising, support services are available to all undergraduate Engineering students. Such services range from academic mentoring, career development, choosing a major, degree planning, learning support and post-graduation planning.

All academic advisors are available Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., to answer questions regarding General Education (GenEd), college and major requirements, and university academic policies and procedures.
