General Admissions

Entrance Requirements and Recommendations

Requirements

Required High School Course Units
Specific high school course units are required for admissions to the freshman class. An academic unit is the equivalent of a year-long course that is not remedial in nature. Upon graduation from high school, applicants must have earned four (4) units of English (at least three (3) with substantial writing requirements); three (3) units of mathematics (algebra I level and higher); three (3) units of natural science (at least two (2) with laboratory); three (3) units of social science (includes history, civics, political science, economics, sociology, psychology, and geography); two (2) sequential units of the same foreign language; and three (3) elective units (preferably from the English, mathematics, natural science, social science, or foreign language areas). The units listed above represent the minimum required for admission consideration. Most students accepted to the University exceed the minimum.
Academic Qualification
Most Florida students accepted to the University present at least a 'B+' average in all academic subjects (grades 9 through 12) and test scores of at least 24 (composite on the ACT or 1100 (critical reading and mathematics sections) on the SAT. Non-Florida applicants will be held to higher standards. In addition to academic grade point average and test scores, a variety of additional factors are considered. These include a written essay, the pattern and quality of courses and curriculum, grade trends, class rank, and educational objectives. Applicants who bring to the University community other important attributes may also receive additional consideration. These applicants include visual and performing artists and skilled athletes.

Recommendations

See current catalog for application procedures. Application information is also available at web sites http://www.fsu.edu and http://www.famu.edu. Additional admissions requirements for the College of Engineering is available at http://www.eng.famu.fsu.edu/prospective/undergraduate/

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering is a joint program of The Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) and The Florida State University (FSU). Available courses of study lead to the Bachelor and Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. Students matriculate in one of the two Universities and receive their degree from that University. Undergraduate students take their liberal studies and core science courses at the university in which they are enrolled, and their engineering courses at the college of engineering.

Undergraduate

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Entrance requirements to the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering are the same as for the university in which the student matriculates. Students indicating preference for engineering enter a pre-engineering program and are not enrolled in an engineering major until they have completed specified science, math, and liberal studies courses.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Students must have an overall GPA of 2.0 or better and achieve a grade of ‘C’ or better, from any institution attended, in First Year Engineering Laboratory, Calculus I, Calculus II, General Chemistry I and General Physics I to be admitted to an engineering major. Intended Chemical Engineering students shall replace General Physics I with General Chemistry II. A single repeated attempt in only one of the five (5) courses listed above with no more than one grade of “C-” is allowed. Students completing a second bachelor’s degree, or who have completed a similar course at another institution, or who transfer into the College already with credit for all of the other pre-engineering courses listed above may be eligible to receive an exemption from having to complete the First-Year Engineering Laboratory course. (See the Student Guide, at http://www.eng.fsu.edu/current/undergraduate/guide.html for complete requirements)

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Minimum score of 550 TOEFL (paper-based) or 80 (computer-based).
Certificate of financial responsibility.
See catalog for other requirements.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

See University Catalog

Residency Requirements

Completion of at least 30 credit hours in residence at FAMU or FSU.
Maintain a legal residence in Florida for 12 months immediately prior to the term in which they are seeking Florida resident classification. Students' residence must be as bona fide domiciliary rather than for the purpose of maintaining a mere temporary residence or abode incident to enrollment in an institution of higher education.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.

The Center is supported by a research team comprised of dedicated and highly skilled researchers, scientists, faculty, engineers, and students, recruited from across the globe, with strong representation from both the academic/research community and industry.

Center for Applied Superconductivity

The Applied Superconductivity Center is a multidisciplinary research center that sits at the interface of the science and the applications of superconductivity. Historically it has occupied itself with the global design of large magnet systems, including their cooling and the superconductor. In recent years, it has concentrated on the understanding and application of superconductors for magnets, electric power applications and for superconducting radio frequency uses. The center personnel have made major contributions to all of the present materials used for magnets: Nb-Ti, Nb3Sn, (Bi,Pb)2Sr2Ca2Cu3Ox, YBa2Cu3O7-x and MgB2 and have graduated over 100 students and postdocs who are widely distributed around the community. The Center is highly collaborative with industry, the national laboratories and academia and has been well supported over many years by several arms of the Department of Energy, the Department of Defense, the National Science Foundation and others. It celebrated its 25th year in 2006 and also moved from the University of Wisconsin to become a division of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory and the College of Engineering at Florida State University.
