Florida Atlantic University’s Broward County-based campuses were created by Florida Statute in the early 1970s to serve Broward residents with access to courses for completing baccalaureate, master and doctoral degrees. Since FAU was first designated in 1989 as the lead state university serving Broward County, FAU's Broward campuses have grown dramatically. During the 2013-2014 academic year, the Broward campuses located in Davie, Fort Lauderdale and Dania Beach served over 6,179 students.
Davie is the largest partner campus of the university with six of FAU’s nine colleges offering courses in 34 “2+2” undergraduate degree programs, and 18 graduate programs. The Dania Beach campus, known as “SeaTech,” houses the Institute for Ocean and Systems Engineering, and complements the academic programs of the Department of Ocean and Mechanical Engineering. The Fort Lauderdale campus is home to the professional degree program in Architecture (B.Arch.), and the School of Accounting Executive Programs (SOAEP).
