College, one of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities
(HBCU) and founded in 1904 by Mary McLeod Bethune, joined the ranks
of HBCUs offering degrees in engineering. Through a grant from
the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Historically Black Colleges
and Universities Undergraduate Program (HBCU-UP), Bethune-Cookman
developed thirteen new courses and put the required personnel in
place resulting in the granting of two bachelors degrees in computer
engineering at the spring 2006 graduation.
