The College of Engineering at the University of Miami is home to the next generation of innovators and forward-thinkers working together to solve real-world problems. This year, as we celebrate our 75th anniversary, we welcome new, bold strategic initiatives that will change the course of the college. We look forward to celebrating our many accomplishments alongside innovators and problem-solvers, just like you. We have unmatched resources explicitly designed to meet your personal, academic, and professional goals at the College of Engineering. Our faculty is also leading the way, cultivating tomorrow’s leaders with technical and scientific skills and resources to be innovative in the academic, nonprofit, private, and public sectors.

Welcome to the College of Engineering, University of Miami “Engineering The Future”

Since its founding in 1947, the University of Miami College of Engineering (CoE) has participated in extraordinary technological, industrial, and societal transformation. We have prepared leaders with the scientific and technical skills, ethical and moral grounding, to drive positive change in industry, government, health care, academia, and allied sectors. From modest beginnings—our first graduating class was a single student—we have grown into a five-department (now expanding to six-departments) College with a presence on all three (Coral Gables, Virginia Key, Downtown Miami) University campuses and degree programs at the undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral levels. In 2020 we graduated about 300 students, 33% of whom were female—a notable achievement in a discipline where women have historically been significantly underrepresented.

As we approach our 75th year (in 2022) celebrations, we are moving forward with a boldly ambitious plan for our future that holds the promise of significant impact in the region, nation, globe—and with an outreach to space. Programs in advanced materials, aerosol science and technology, biomedical engineering, energy and environment, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, space sciences and engineering, sustainable construction, innovative educational programs among others, give us a strong platform for excelling in 21st-century discovery and problem-solving. We hope to accomplish this with high impact by collaborating with researchers and educators across the University - in the Arts & Sciences, Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, Business, Medicine, Nursing, Architecture, Law, Communication, and other disciplines, to extend and deepen our understanding of these global challenges and holistically impart the skills needed to solve them.

Through the confluence of industry partnership, specialized research, and a thriving South Florida entrepreneurial ecosystem, the CoE is well positioned to drive innovation in South Florida and in the hemisphere, collaborate with industry to solve real-world problems in South Florida and around the world, and to educate the next generation of engineers to solve existing and as-yet-unimagined problems. We will achieve our goals through support from like-minded, ambitious individuals, our alumni, foundations, and industry partners who support our students, faculty and research as we embrace the challenge and promise of “Engineering Miami for the Future” – a future we have only begun to imagine.

The COE has been led by visionary Deans – Einspruch, Becker, Temares, Tien, Bardet and Berg in the recent past 50 years. The current Dean, Dr. Pratim Biswas, member of the NAE, has taken charge to continue advancing the College forward to the next level of excellence.

Mission & Vision

The College of Engineering is focused on educating the next generation of engineers to prepare societal leaders with strong scientific and technical skills combined with an ethical and moral outlook to impact academia, business, government and/or the non-profit sector. Through discovery of new knowledge and its application we tackle global challenge problems, and create opportunities through innovation and entrepreneurship. We do this with a deep commitment to excellence, demonstrated meritocracy, transparency, inclusiveness, and diversity.

The College of Engineering transforms lives by:

  • Creating new knowledge
