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 tracks.
