About the College

Unique. Collaborative. Relevant.

The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering, established by the Florida Legislature in 1982, is the joint engineering school for Florida A&M and Florida State universities, the only shared college of engineering in the nation. We are located less than three miles from each campus. Our students enroll (and graduate) as Seminoles or Rattlers and start their college experience on the home campus. Once prerequisites are complete, they learn together at our engineering building.

We are surrounded by eight partner research centers and a national laboratory. This unique collaboration between a top Historically-Black University and a Research-1 institution makes us a great place to learn cutting-edge engineering skills in a diverse environment offering real-world experience that employers value.

2019 Diversity Recognition Badge - Bronze

The college is a leading academic institution with excellent records of achievement in research and public service. We offer Bachelor of Science (B.S.) programs in chemical, civil, computer, electrical, industrial, biomedical and mechanical engineering as well as M.S. and Ph.D. programs. We have attracted an outstanding faculty from all over the world. Our graduates are a diverse group of engineers, from many races, ethnicities, and nationalities.

The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering earned a Bronze award and Exemplar status from the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) in the inaugural year of the ASEE Diversity Recognition Program.

The college is one of only two engineering programs in Florida to earn the distinctions.

The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering has been widely hailed for taking the initiative to create programs to align academic curriculum with industry needs. We ensure that the students learn what they need to learn through quality teaching and research.
