FIU rises in rankings, remains committed to social mobility

From an abandoned airfield of 344 acres to a school of 56,592 students. “FIU has expanded over the past five decades opening law and medical schools since 2000, among other programs — it has risen based on its academic heft and its track record of educating first-generation college students. That record led to its No. 6 ranking in social mobility among all U.S. universities, No. 5 if you include only public schools, according to U.S. News & World Report’s latest rankings of colleges and universities. And it led FIU to leap 17 spots in the overall 2022 rankings for public universities, landing at No. 78, up from 95 in 2021.”

FIU online programs continue to achieve top rankings in U.S. News & World Reportthat brought great momentum to FIU’s College of Engineering and Computing.

As we celebrate the year’s end, we are proud of our engineering and computer science accomplishments at Florida International University (FIU). We are leading impactful research, producing innovative patents, and celebrating the entrepreneurial skills of our students.

Undeterred, he continued his studies and in 2018 walked across the commencement stage using an exoskeleton to receive his bachelor’s degree from FIU’s College of Engineering and Computing. On Dec. 12, 2021, he did it again and graduated with a master’s degree in biomedical engineering from FIU. Aldo hopes to enter the biomedical industry to help others like him suffering from severe spinal injury. He also hopes to pursue a Ph.D.
