The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering occupies offices and teaching laboratories on the fourth, sixth, and seventh floors of Temple University’s Engineering and Architecture Building on 1947 North 12th Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We occupy a small amount of research space in a co-located building, Anderson Hall.
The primary classrooms, used by our program, are on the third, sixth and seventh floors of the Engineering and Architecture Building. Virtually all of our classrooms are equipped with computer presentation equipment and a computer connected to the Internet. These classrooms typically hold between 25 and 40 students and are equipped with student desks for seating. As enrollment has grown, we are increasingly teaching classes outside our building. Fortunately, most classrooms in the university are now equipped with computer projection equipment.
Other resources available for classroom instruction include a large multimedia lecture hall on the ground floor that holds 120 students. This auditorium is used for large lecture sections, such as our senior design and seminar classes, as well as for special events. We also have an exhibit room on the first floor that is used for special programs, such as poster presentations for senior design. In addition, due to the recent growth of our college, we make use of classrooms and lecture halls outside of our building for about 20% of our engineering classes that are offered during peak busy times.
The Department Chair and administrative assistant’s offices are located on the 7th floor. The administrative offices of the College are located on the 3rd floor. These include the Office of Undergraduate Studies, which provides advising for first and second-year students, as well as tutoring services. The 3rd floor also houses a seminar room equipped with videoconferencing technology that is used for department meetings and other significant events.
Our active student branches are also given office space. Our IEEE Student Chapter (http://www.temple.edu/students/ieee/home.html) is located on the 7th floor and serves as an important social center for the students. Other affiliated student activity offices are on the second floor including the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE, http://www.temple.edu/students/nsbe/) and the Society for Women Engineers (SWE). Finally, our department’s radio club, TUARC (www.temple.edu/k3tu) is located on the 9th floor in proximity to the roof where they maintain their antennae.
