print entire profile



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 for complete requirements)
