With a student body of nearly 46,000, we’re one of the 25 largest public universities in the nation. More than 110,000 FIU alumni live and work in South Florida.
Our colleges and schools offer more than 180 bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs in fields such as engineering, international relations and law. As one of South Florida’s anchor institutions, FIU has been locally and globally engaged for more than four decades finding solutions to the most challenging problems of our time.
FIU emphasizes research as a major component of its mission. The opening of the Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine in August 2009 has enhanced the university’s ability to create lasting change through its research initiatives. University Research expenditures are more than $100 million per year.
