The College of Engineering was established as a joint program serving two universities in Tallahassee, Florida: The Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, which received recognition from the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering in 2010 for ranking number one as the institution of origin for African Americans earning Doctorates in Natural Science and Engineering; and, The Florida State University which has gained worldwide recognition for its extensive graduate and research programs.

The College is a leading academic institution with excellent records of achievement in research and public service. It offers Bachelor of Science (B.S.) programs in chemical, civil, computer, electrical, industrial and mechanical engineering as well as M.S. and Ph.D. programs. The College has attracted an outstanding faculty from all over the world. Thousands of young, intelligent and self-motivated men and women have attended the College in the last two decades, receiving over 5000 degrees. These graduates are a diverse group of engineers, from many races, ethnicities, and nationalities.

The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering has been widely hailed for taking the initiative to create programs to align academic curriculum with industry needs. The College ensures that the students learn what they need to learn through quality teaching and research. All programs offered by the College have been accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Our primary goal is to provide a challenging and educational experience for our students that will enable them to become effective engineering professionals in an increasingly technological society in which engineering jobs are expected to grow by 11% over the 2008-2018 decade, and starting salaries are among the highest of all college graduates.*
