To the Temple Engineering community,
As the calendar turns to February, the coming days bring both hope and continued concern as we welcome you back for the spring semester. Nearly one year ago, the College of Engineering community, like the world around us, faced a fundamental shift from the ravages of COVID-19. This shift reframed how each of us approach learning, working and living.
We hope that in the not-too-distant future we will be able to engage in normal on-campus activities, as we always have. For now, please continue to follow this page for guidance from the university relating to campus life.
As we look to the future, also remember why you chose to study engineering in the first place.
Engineers are among those tasked with making the world whole again following crises like this. For example, from vaccine development to optimizing distribution and ultimately administering vaccination, your studies are a common thread now, and will be a critical link in the future.
Let that be our inspiration for 2021 and beyond: rededicating ourselves to making a safer, stronger world through applied science. Whether you are a new or returning student, I encourage you to heed that call. Connect with your peers. Join a student professional organization. Attend the career fair. Apply to engage in research with faculty. Reach for that internship or fellowship opportunity. Now is the time.
If you worry about falling down or falling behind, we are here.
Have a safe and productive semester,
PS: Keep in mind these important dates as the semester begins:
Career Fair, February 11, 10:00 - 2:00 pm
Engineers Week, February 21-27
Relief Week, March 8-12
No major homework will be assigned or due, and no exams will be conducted. .
