Who we are

Where we’re going

FIU Engineering & Computing faculty, students and alumni are impacting the world. They’re using nanotechnology to improve people’s health. They’re advancing sustainability of construction. They’re enhancing communities’ resistance to natural disasters. They’re building better bridges, solving crucial engineering problems and showing a new generation how to unlock the future through STEM education.

We are committed to offering our students an outstanding and rigorous education in an environment that supports intellectual growth. We conduct research that contributes significantly to the world around us and enhances the research capabilities and scholarly achievements of our faculty and students.

Our diverse student body has grown to almost 6,000 students, and our alumni are now more than 15,000 strong. FIU attracts students from all over the globe, and our graduates are effecting change from South Florida to Washington, D.C. and in places across the world.

We are responsive to the emerging challenges and opportunities that the new century and the global environments of research and economic activities present.

Programs With Influence to the computers that we use to do just about everything these days, few other disciplines impact the world so pervasively as

engineering.

What we’re about As the research engine of the university, and as a strong force for Miami’s economic development, we provide quality education, problem-solving research and community engagement through local involvement, national prominence and global exposure. Pursuing the discovery and application of innovative engineering ideas and technologies, we enhance the economic vitality and quality of life in our community, our region and the nation. Crossing the blood-brain barrier to deliver HIV-drugs, building telebots to assist disabled veterans, testing and designing structures to withstand strong winds and monitoring highway health with smart sensors are just a few ways we are working to make our community and our world better places to live.

We are here to provide the high quality foundation and research opportunities our students need to become tomorrow’s leaders, innovators and world-changers.

With a $250,000 gift from the state’s third largest building contractor, the OHL School of Construction is opening the Moss & Associates Built Environment Informatics Lab. The innovative facility will allow students to learn from real-world data and case studies using virtual simulations without having to make trips into the field. Through a partnership with global construction giant Obrascon Huarte Lain (OHL), we have launched FIU’s first international internship program, giving our students an extraordinary opportunity to work at the company’s headquarters in Madrid and receive assignments at OHL projects around the world. We have teamed up with Miami-Dade County Public Schools to offer training workshops for STEM teachers in computational thinking, algorithms and programming. We provide advanced programming and problem-solving workshops for talented high school students from Miami-Dade and Broward counties. FIU’s strong relationships with the information technology industry helped us rank No. 1 among universities that submitted for a pilot program in performance funding and secure $7.5 million in additional funding from the State University System – recognition of our success in computer science and information technology education. FIU’s online graduate engineering program is among the nation’s best, coming in at No. 41 in the latest rankings by U.S. News & World Report. FIU ranked third among all the schools ranked in faculty credentials and training.

Research That Matters • Faculty in Biomedical Engineering are developing a handheld device to detect breast cancer, as well as conducting research that aims to restore touch and feel to arm and hand prostheses. • Mechanical and Materials Engineering faculty are an integral part of a team of researchers from universities across the nation developing a retinal implant to restore functional sight to people who have gone blind due to certain diseases. • Electrical and Computer Engineering faculty are teaming up with surgeons to develop minimally invasive precision surgery on patients with epilepsy, and using nanotechnology to deliver cancer-killing drugs and life-saving drugs to the brain. • FIU’s Discovery Lab is using telerobotics – the combination of telepresence and robotics – to develop a prototype for a telebot that will allow disabled police and military veterans to serve as patrol officers. • Civil and Environmental Engineering faculty in the Lehman Center for Transportation Research have instrumented the busiest interchange in Miami with sensors to monitor its structural health and create an extended laboratory for FIU students. • The Accelerated Bridge Construction University Transportation Center (ABC-UTC) at FIU is working on one of the nation’s leading challenges—deteriorating bridges. The center is the first federally funded entity focused on developing technology and methods to improve and speed up the construction of bridges. • Students from the OHL School of Construction have created a tradition of excellence with their continued success in the Associated Builders and Contractors Student Chapter Construction Management Competition. Our team won the championship in 2012 and has finished second in the last two competitions. • The School of Computing and Information Sciences is creating a coordinated resource management framework that optimizes the allocations of cloud computing and storage resources according to application-desired Quality of Service. • FIU engineers are partnering with other universities on a national nanotechnology research effort to create small, wearable, self-powered devices that will help people monitor their health. • Engineers at FIU’s 12-fan Wall of Wind – the largest and most powerful university research facility of its kind – conduct full-scale testing of building and infrastructure components in wind and rain flows that replicate up to Category 5 hurricane conditions.
