Welcome College of Engineering students!
This year, we yet again welcome our largest and most qualified class ever!
If you are a new student, please note that you are joining the College of Engineering at the most exciting time – both at the college and the university. As you may have noticed, the college of engineering building is undergoing renovations. The Department of Architecture relocated, giving the College of Engineering the opportunity to expand to the 8th and 9th floors. Scheduled to be complete by the end of October, the 8th floor will be the main home for the new Department of Bioengineering. Office space and open labs will also be created on the 9th floor. Furthermore, the new Introduction to Engineering laboratory is currently under construction on the 3rd floor. This lab will give engineering students a unique and dedicated space to work on their design projects.
Furthermore, just next door, a new Science, Education & Research Building is under construction. Its proximity to the College of Engineering and Biology-Life Science Building will create a science and technology hub on campus. Although these renovations may cause some disruptions, they are necessary so that Temple can continue to provide a first-rate education and an exceptional student experience.
Also, the college is pleased that many new faculty members have joined our community. These faculty members come from prestigious organizations and companies, offering a tremendous amount of teaching and research experience. Due to the college’s increase of undergraduate and Ph.D. students and the introduction of the Department of Bioengineering we expect to add even more talented individuals to its faculty within the next few years.
Once again, welcome to our campus and the College of Engineering. I look forward to seeing you this fall either in my classroom or somewhere on campus. I invite you to explore the college beyond the classroom to see the many research and service opportunities that are available to undergraduate and graduate students. I look forward to another extraordinary year at the college.
Keya Sadeghipour, Ph.D.
