Welcome students 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.  

Our focus within MAE is on excellence in engineering education, which extends from our incoming freshmen to our PhD graduate students and post-doctoral researchers. At the undergraduate level, MAE has made a commitment to teaching both theory and practice, which is reflected in our classroom lectures and our five state-of-the-art laboratories. We accomplish this vision through our wide range of courses, labs, undergraduate research, student societies, design and build project teams, and our community service projects.

This comprehensive philosophy carries to MAE’s graduate program, where the intellectual diversity of more than 70 faculty members allows our MS and PhD students to explore multidisciplinary problems at the intersection of science and engineering, pursuing their interests in experimental, theoretical and computational aspects.  MAE’s leading-edge research provides the opportunity for our graduate students to grow and prosper, becoming tomorrow’s thought leaders in industry, government and academia.
