FAMU-FSU College of Engineering



FAMU-FSU College of Engineering

The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering 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 Rattlers or Seminoles 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 Tier-1 research institution makes us a great place to learn cutting-edge engineering skills in a diverse environment offering real-world experience that employers value.

Engineering Departments and Degrees


Chemical & Biomedical Engineering  

Chemical engineers are involved in the manufacturing of products as varied as petrochemicals, plastics, textiles, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, biochemicals, metals and semiconductors. Biomedical engineers apply engineering to human health, often working on medical research. We offer BS, MS and Ph.D. degrees in both chemical and biomedical engineering.

Civil & Environmental Engineering  

Civil engineers play a vital role in creating man-made infrastructure and protecting the natural environment. They develop, improve, plan, design, construct and operate facilities essential to modern life ranging from buildings to transit systems. We offer a bachelor's degree in civil engineering with an option for environmental engineering, as well as several graduate degrees in civil engineering.

Electrical & Computer Engineering  

Electrical engineers develop circuits, systems and networks used for electrical power generation/distribution, machine and process control, wireless and satellite communications and more. Computer engineers apply the software skills of a computer scientist with the hardware skills of an electrical engineer. We offer a bachelor's degree in computer engineering, plus a bachelor's and several graduate degrees in electrical engineering.

Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering  

Industrial engineers bring innovation and efficiency to service and manufacturing industries including healthcare, transportation, food and pharmaceuticals. Skills in quality control, machine learning, manufacturing optimization and manufacturing of advanced materials are key. We offer a bachelor's and graduate degrees in industrial engineering. In addition, we have specialized MS programs in engineering management and systems engineering.

Mechanical Engineering  

Mechanical engineers analyze, design and control thermal-fluid systems, structural and materials systems or dynamic and mechatronic systems. These engineers are hired in every industry from automotive to biomedical. We offer BS, MS and Ph.D. in mechanical engineering, as well as a MS in sustainable energy.
