U.A. Whitaker College of Engineering

Our value proposition is hard to beat

We aren't simply committed to producing graduates with superior technical and professional skills. We believe in a more personal approach, with smaller class sizes and full-time faculty who work closely with students in an innovative and entrepreneurial atmosphere.

Holmes Hall

Holmes Hall is strategically designed for student-centered teaching of engineering and computing courses in an active and collaborative learning environment, including a high bay for large-scale projects. With access to industrial ovens, gyratory compactors, a two-ton overhead gantry crane, a pressure chamber and mobile work tables, Holmes Hall provides an inspiring environment for students. The college is led by Dr. Richard Behr. 

The Emergent Technologies Institute

The Emergent Technologies Institute

The Emergent Technologies Institute (ETI) is the first project in the Innovation Hub, a 240-acre development planned as a magnet for technology and research companies. Classes met for the first time in fall 2016 at the 25,000-square-foot building, which was designed to support new educational initiatives, enhance the regional workforce and economic development and foster collaboration involving higher education, government, industry and the local community. Dr. John Woolschlager leads the ETI team.

We engineer community connections 

To encourage the exploration of education and careers in engineering, FGCU holds a variety of annual outreach programs. Project Lead the Way empowers middle and high school teachers to enhance teaching in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Hundreds of area students get revved up each year for our Sunchase Solar Go-Kart Challenge. And FGCU partners with Hertz for a Hackathon in which our students work together to develop solutions to problems using software algorithms, mobile applications and analytical insights.
