Mechanical Engineering Undergraduate Program

The Mechanical Engineering Department at Temple University offers students an in-depth look into the process of solving engineering problems through mathematical and scientific approach.

Mechanical Engineering Undergraduate Program

A significant portion of a mechanical engineering curriculum involves the study of mathematics, materials, basic mechanics, thermal science, and fluid mechanics. This theory and the associated analysis skills are then put into practical use in a sequence of design-oriented classes that emphasize open-ended problems.

Mechanical Engineering Curriculum

In the College of Engineering, both theoretical and practical skills can be further developed and refined by participating in an optional Cooperative Education (Co-op) program. Our incoming students have the option to pursue a concentration in Energy Systems, while our continuing students also have the option to pursue a concentration in Bioengineering. While hands-on mechanical skills can be an asset to a mechanical engineering student, skills in mathematics, science and computing are better predictors of ultimate success.
