The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering is the unique combination of two outstanding universities with overlapping but distinct missions - the Nation's top Historically Black College/University with a Tier-1 research university. As such, we provide exceptional research and entrepreneurship-driven education to one of the most diverse student populations in the US. Faculties are employed by one of the two partner universities but hold joint faculty privileges at both universities.
