Join us at one of the events below as we celebrate our 30th anniversary. This is an opportunity for us to reflect on our past, celebrate our present and share our hopes for the future. Thirty years ago, our college was established with the promise of public access to the best public engineering education in South Florida, the dream of serving as the engine for economic development of Miami-Dade, and the hope of engineering a better future for our community. Over the last 30 years, the college has graduated nearly 20,000 engineers and computer scientists; and has contributed over $3 billion to the economy of South Florida through research and development and workforce development.
