Engineering at Florida Gulf Coast University was originally established as the School of Engineering in Fall 2005 and became the U.A. Whitaker College of Engineering (WCE) in August 2011. The WCE is located in Holmes Hall, a building that was specifically designed for student-centered teaching of engineering and computing courses in an active and collaborative learning environment. The College currently has 30 faculty and staff and over 850 students and offers undergraduate engineering degree programs in Bioengineering, Civil engineering, Environmental engineering, and Software engineering (as well as an undergraduate degree in computer science for students who were on campus before Fall 2011).
The BS in Bioengineering, BS in Civil Engineering, BS in Environmental Engineering, and BS in Software Engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org/.
