The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering is the nexus of two major public universities, each with a distinct mission but focused on world-class engineering education and research. Created by the Florida Legislature in 1982, the joint institution is the college of engineering for both Florida A&M and Florida State universities. This unique combination of focus, resources and mission from our parent institutions has created on our campus a truly innovative atmosphere that leverages the benefits of the traditional HBCU model with the innovations of an R-1 public research university. After completing pre-requisites at their home institution, FAMU and FSU students learn, study and research together at our independent campus with joint-appointed faculty and staff. Students graduate from their enrolling university and from the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. Both FAMU and FSU are part of the State University System of Florida and are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. Additionally, all six of the college’s eligible undergraduate degree programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
Suitable applicants must possess an earned PhD degree in chemical engineering or a closely related engineering discipline. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, as well as the ability to motivate and inspire students are essential. While not required, ability and experience in teaching bioengineering related courses is also desirable.
