The Dania Beach site (SeaTech) is FAU's Institute for Ocean and Systems Engineering, located on eight acres between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway in Dania Beach, Fla., with valuable access to the ocean and seawater.
Established in 1997 as a state-funded Type II research center, the institute is part of FAU's Department of Ocean and Mechanical Engineering.
Its team of world-class faculty members, engineers, technicians and students are engaged in federally and industry-sponsored ocean engineering research and technology development in the areas of acoustics, marine vehicles, hydrodynamics and physical oceanography, marine materials and nanocomposites.
SeaTech builds on and complements the academic programs of the Department of Ocean and Mechanical Engineering and forms the means for technology advancement, collaboration with academia, industry and government, and transition of research projects to applications.

To the FAU Community,
I wanted to make you aware of recent changes at the Broward campuses. The academic programs that have been located in Fort Lauderdale all continue to serve students and are poised for growth, though some have changed location:
The College for Design and Social Inquiry School of Architecture’s Bachelor of Architecture program remains in Fort Lauderdale and has been consolidated to newly renovated spaces in the Higher Education Complex. The new administrative office for the School is HE Room 607.
The Second Avenue Studio at 220 SE 2ndAvenue is the new site for the School of Architecture’s MetroLAB. In addition to functioning as an academic space it will remain an exhibition space and site for community engagement programs.
The College of Business Executive Masters in Accounting programs remain in Fort Lauderdale and have been relocated to the Higher Education Complex. The administrative office is HE 1008F.
The Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters Graphic Design program has moved to the third floor of the Liberal Arts (LA) building in Davie.
Multimedia Studies is now based at the fourth floor of the LA building at Davie.
The College for Design and Social Inquiry School of Urban and Regional Planning has moved to the Social Sciences (SO) building in Boca Raton.

In addition, the main office of the Associate Provost for the Broward Campuses is in the Liberal Arts (LA) building at Davie, Suite 212. The telephone number is x61280. The downtown satellite campus administration office is located in HE 1007.
Three units with community outreach missions remain in Fort Lauderdale at the Higher Education Complex: the Small Business Development Center in HE 1009 H; the Florida Public Archaeology Network HE 1008 D; and Upward Bound in HE 1008 P.
The Askew Tower and Higher Education buildings at Fort Lauderdale are now managed by Broward College. All requests for use of meeting or event space at both FAU Fort Lauderdale and Broward College should be directed to Jane Morgan, x61282; or Charlotte Walker, x61280.
FAU parking is still available in Fort Lauderdale in the ground lot adjacent to the Higher Education Complex or on the rooftop of the City Park parking garage.
On behalf of FAU Broward Campus Administration and the Office of the Provost I welcome your questions and look forward to working with you in the 2013-2014 academic year!
