The Research and Engineering Education Facility (REEF) is a partnership between UF and the Eglin Air Force Base (EAFB) and the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL/RW), and is located adjacent to the EAFB in Shalimar, Florida. The REEF offers courses that may lead to Masters and Doctorate degree programs in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Industrial and Systems Engineering.

REEF supports the greater Eglin Air Force Base (EAFB) community and responds to Air Force research needs. UF-REEF students gain valuable experience while working with world class researchers from UF and the Air Force on a wide range of relevant and challenging research topics. REEF provides graduate engineering education, geared particularly toward the needs of the EAFB community.
