The Mechanical Engineering (B.S.) program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org, under the General Criteria and Program Criteria for Mechanical and Similarly Named Engineering Programs.

Program Educational Objectives

  1.  The Temple University BS ME Program recruits diverse resourceful students who will, within a few years of graduation, use their engineering education to address issues facing modern society.

  2.  The Temple University BS ME Program integrates mechanical-engineering training, interdisciplinary opportunities, and teamwork experience; this comprehensive technical foundation prepares BS ME Program graduates to participate, within a few years of graduation, in cutting-edge engineering and research.

  3.  Temple University BS ME students acquire the intellectual breadth to identify needs and the communication skills to achieve consensus; these capabilities enable ME alumni, within a few years of graduation, to facilitate the adoption of engineered solutions in a societally responsible manner.

  4.  Alumni of the Temple University BS ME Program, within a few years of graduation, shall be prepared to implement critical engineered developments in the course of their subsequent careers, whether they are (i) practicing engineers, or (ii) technically-informed professionals in related vocations including medicine, law, and business.

Student Outcomes

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
