Engineers on Wheels (EOW)
The Engineers on Wheels program is an initiative which brings FIU engineering students to South Florida K-12 schools. EOW provides students with hands-on activities and engineering experiments while exposing them to career opportunities in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).
The program features grade-appropriate, interactive lessons and presentations led by FIU students and overseen by FIU faculty. Subjects include mechanical and materials engineering, computer science and information technology, biomedical engineering, civil and environmental engineering, construction and engineering management, and electrical and computer engineering.

Program History & Highlights
The college offers several dual enrollment courses to high school students. These courses are free to students and provide an opportunity for them to earn high school and college credit simultaneously (grades will become part of permanent high school AND college transcripts).
FLAME (Florida Action for Minorities in Engineering)
ENLACE (ENgaging LAtino Communities in Education)
In its 18th year, the Engineering Expo is the college’s premiere community outreach event. In 2018, the college welcomed more than 1,800 K-12 students from Miami-Dade and Broward County schools to the FIU Engineering Center to engage FIU student organizations, researchers, and staff, and to explore degrees in engineering or computer science. In 2018, 30 labs and 18 student organizations represented each major within the college, and provided students with tours, demonstrations, and hands-on activities.
