College of Engineering                          and Computer Science

The College of Engineering and Computer Science has extensive research programs funded by business, industry and government. Leading these initiatives is the Center for Ocean Energy Technology, which explores innovations that will extract energy from the ocean’s Gulf Stream current. This research initiative involves many of the Engineering and Computer Science disciplines and is just one of the many projects establishing the groundwork for innovation and technology. The college now calls a 97,000-square-foot, LEED platinum-level building “home.” The building was designed to achieve platinum-level certification — the highest in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards from the U.S. Green Building Council. The building is the first in a new engineering complex on the Boca Raton campus and will be a living/learning laboratory for sustainable development, featuring all areas and disciplines of the college. The data collected by different sensor technologies embedded throughout the building such as photovoltaic (solar) energy created, energy consumed, geothermal well water temperatures and temperature indicators will be used to teach, learn and observe. All of the collected information will reinforce the groundwork for new innovation and technology to be fostered within the college. For more information, visit www.eng.fau.edu.
