Welcome to Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) at the University of Florida is the largest academic program on campus, by student enrollment. Our Mechanical Engineering program celebrated its 100 year anniversary in 2009 and is one of the founding departments of the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering. Now more than a decade beyond the successful merger of the mechanical and aerospace programs, MAE remains a vibrant and intellectually diverse program at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
In this section we provide an overview of MAE’s history, vision and mission along with some facts about UF’s largest department, our accreditation, and our Advisory Board.
Inclusive Excellence is the active process of including and respecting everyone as we strive for excellence and equitable outcomes in all we do at the University of Florida. Daily actions toward Inclusive Excellence are the responsibility of every one of us.
ABCs of fostering Inclusive Excellence at UF:
- Advocate for everyone’s success.
- Be an ally to others as you partner with your colleagues on DEI work.
- Celebrate your successes!
