For more than 50 years, Temple Engineering students have been among the most accomplished students at Temple University. Many engage in research with faculty while competing for top internships and routinely capturing prestigious honors, such as the Goldwater Scholarship. Students can pursue a wide range of interdisciplinary opportunities, through 17 student professional organizations, research partnerships with Temple’s medical, dental, podiatry and pharmacy schools—and even study abroad without disrupting their engineering coursework.
In addition, engineering students can often be found working in the IDEAS Hub, an 8,000-square-foot work space that is part of a comprehensive engineering ecosystem at the college. Here, 3D printing, motion capture, robotics and drone stations empower students with the tools they need to excel in the jobs they step into after graduation. This is evidenced by excellent job placement rates—among the highest at Temple—with graduates hired by companies like Amazon, Boeing, NASA, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, Metrologic, among others. Many other students have pursued advanced degrees at institutions such as the University of Pennsylvania, Northwestern Medical School and Princeton.
The College of Engineering is located at Temple University’s main campus, in the thriving city of Philadelphia – a city at the forefront of science and technology. Philadelphia is also the second largest city on the east coast and home to historic events, such as the signing of the Declaration of Independence, music and sporting venues, restaurants, theaters, and clubs. We strive to pursue these objectives in a learning environment that celebrates ethnic and gender diversity, respects experience, and encourages problem solving through teamwork. This makes Temple University’s College of Engineering a great place to start your career.
