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 States.
The College's 97,000-square-foot green building on the Florida Atlantic University Boca Raton campus is the first higher education academic building in the State of Florida designed and built to LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum level standards.
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 (ILHP) provides a select group of students with enhanced background and training in innovation, entrepreneurship, leadership, sustainability and communication.
Programs and DegreesTwenty-one degree programs are offered by the College on the FAU Boca Raton campus.
