THE FAMU-FSU COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING IS IMPROVING OUTREACH EFFORTS

FSU Libraries provides research, citation management, and public access support to students at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. This joint program is located on a campus between Florida State University and Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University in Tallahassee, Florida. FAMU-FSU College of Engineering offers a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) program in chemical, civil, computer, electrical, industrial and mechanical engineering, as well as M.S. and Ph.D. programs. Over the past 20 years, the College has awarded more than 5,000 degrees.

This year, FSU College of Engineering Librarians Renaine Julian and Denise A. Wetzel are working to increase outreach and services for students, staff, and faculty. Through the production of targeted postcards for faculty, to a brown bag workshop series, to the overhauling of the College of Engineering Library webpage, Fall 2018 is the semester of big changes.
