About Torin Robinson
As we travelled south down I-95, we met another promising STEM talent, Torin Robinson. Torin is a computer engineering major at Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University (FAMU). Torin was born in Miami, FL and raised in Lake County. He is a young man dedicated to furthering his education by currently working as a crew member in the fast-food industry while being a full-time student in the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering (COE). FAMU-FSU COE is unique in that it is the only shared college of engineering in the nation (Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, 2021). FAMU students are extremely lucky to partake in the HBCU experience while also comingling with other engineering students at Florida State University.
When asked what does attending an HBCU mean to him, Torin’s response was, "being around black excellence, and a family-oriented environment." Family is something that is important to Torin and we are so glad he has found his tribe at FAMU. In addition to pursuing his own STEM passion, Torin is inspired by helping the next generation of African American students get involved in STEM. Re.engineer can certainly align with that inspiration, as it is one of our guiding principles as well! Torin lives by the mantra "when striving for perfection, you'll obtain excellence." We are joyfully cheering for Torin to cross the finish line as a STEM graduate and can't wait to see the positive impact he will make in the STEM community!
