Though our college was established in 1970, our history echoes back to when Russell Conwell founded Temple University in 1884. Through humble beginnings as a night school, Temple University has grown to become one of the nation’s most comprehensive, diverse learning and research environments. At Temple College of Engineering, we hold fast to that history while empowering our students to shape the future. 

Now, perhaps more than ever, the world around us demands solutions to create a better, cleaner, safer place for future generations. Today, we challenge our students through a rigorous and experiential engineering curriculum to do just that, leaving evidence of their industry in their wake. 

None of this growth and transformation we’ve seen would be possible without our more than 11,000 dedicated, engaged alumni. The difference our students seek to make is driven by the impact already made by our alumni. By celebrating our first five decades, we look forward to an impactful five more, and beyond.

Please check back as we add more stories and photos commemorating the journey we have embarked on together. We hope you will join us in recognizing our shared past and accelerating the potential of our future.
