Engineering

Welcome to FAMU’s Engineering Community! 

About Engineering:

The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) defines engineering as “that profession in which knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences gained by study, experience, and practice is applied with judgment to develop ways to utilize, economically, the materials and forces of nature for the benefit of mankind.” An engineer’s goal is to solve a problem or design a new product according to specifications to meet a predetermined set of needs or requirements. For example, electrical engineers working for a company that designs an electronic consumer product may perform tests on the electrical components of that product to ensure they meet safety standards and perform according to goals. They may also be asked to recommend new designs or materials for products under development. A civil engineer may be asked to design a new bridge, road, or overpass that will remain structurally sound for many years.

What does Professional Development (PD) look like for Engineering:

Meet with your Career Liaison and Academic Adviser as much as possible. Please attend the workshops and webinars that are hosted by the Career and Professional Development Center. In addition to that, please join student organizations related to engineering as well as others on campuses. Start seeking internships as early as your first year and attending the STEM and FAMU all majors’ career expo. In addition to that, begin to network and find mentors. Get involved with doing research as well. Get to know your professors.
