About the College of Engineering
and Computer Science
From the College’s start in 1965 with the
first degree program in ocean engineering,
it has grown to encompass three academic
departments and nine technical disciplines.
Known for strong teaching and advising,
diversity of the student body, K-12 outreach
programs, collaborations with business and
industry, and quality and quantity of research,
the College intends to be an institution of
choice in the southeast region of the United
Engineering East, the College’s 97,000-square-
foot green building on the FAU Boca Raton
campus is the first higher education academic
building in southeast Florida designed
and built to LEED
(Leadership in Energy
and Environmental Design) Platinum level
The building serves as a living-learning
laboratory for sustainable development.
Included in the laboratory is access to the
data collected by several different sensor
technologies embedded throughout
the building. Information regarding the
photovoltaic (solar) energy created,
energy consumed, geothermal well water
temperatures, temperature indicators and many
other systems data are collected and available
for all to research and study.
The College consistently encourages innovative
and critical thinking in the bachelor’s, master’s
and doctoral degree programs. The Innovation
Leadership Honors Program provides a select
group of students with enhanced background
and training in innovation, entrepreneurship,
leadership, sustainability and communication.
Twenty-one degree programs are offered by the
College on the FAU Boca Raton campus.
The College has extensive research programs
funded by business, industry and government.
These initiatives are the hallmark of the
College. Ten research centers provide focus for
College research activities.
Students can gain practical work experience
in their disciplines prior to graduation. The
College works with business, industry and
government to arrange internships, traditional
cooperative education and permanent
placement opportunities for undergraduate
and graduate students. There are many ways
that students can receive instruction, including
face-to-face, hybrid and online.
