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.
