Prados, John W.; And Others
This report presents the results of a review of engineering programs offered at the universities governed by the Board of Regents of the State University System of Florida conducted by a team of engineering consultants. It begins with comments on recent and current trends in engineering employment and education, followed by a discussion of several significant system-wide issues, reviews of the individual campuses, and a summary of major findings and recommendations. The individual campuses include: University of Florida (UF), Florida A&M University and Florida State University joint engineering school (FAMU/FSU), University of South Florida (USF), Florida Atlantic University (FAU), University of Central Florida (UCF), Florida International University (FIU), and University of North Florida (UNF). Information listed under individual campuses includes educational programs, students, faculty, facilities and resources, responses to previous program review recommendations, strengths and needs, and recommendations. The report does not include Computer Engineering programs. Although the review was not conducted at the level of detail of a professional accreditation review, reference is made from time to time to the potential impact of certain features of a particular program on its continued accreditation by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
