Welcome to the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE) at the University of Florida! MAE is the largest — by student enrollment — academic program on the University of Florida campus. At MAE, we focus on excellence in engineering education, which extends from our incoming freshmen to our PhD graduate students and post-doctoral researchers. We develop a strong foundation of core knowledge supported by hands-on research opportunities and development of soft skills such as leadership, communication, and teamwork.
This comprehensive philosophy is embedded in our undergraduate program, where the intellectual diversity of more than 60 faculty members empowers our students to explore multidisciplinary problems at the intersection of science and engineering. Our extensive focus on design laboratories in our undergraduate curriculum ensure that our graduates are competitive for industry positions.
