Dedication to Excellence

Welcome to the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) at UCF: where highly motivated students –supported by an esteemed international faculty and dedicated staff– experience a unique engineering education par excellence. Graduating MAE students discover that the ability to learn on their own is the key to a rewarding career.

Our learned instructors provide the necessary inspiration for students to understand important topics. These pupils are encouraged to develop the skills to inquire about, and explore, new ideas on their own. They are also trained to develop the ability to think and innovate, based on a strong scholastic foundation. They gain a broad understanding of technical possibilities, sensitivity to societal needs,  and the vision to perceive solutions.  In essence, they are well-prepared for a life of continuing education, which is vital for future success. They attain the knowledge, the methods, and the confidence to excel in a profession that promises many challenges, and many rewards.

For information about our graduate programs and research areas, watch the MAE Graduate Program video. For questions about applications, GRAs, GTAs, and Fellowships, please email the MAE Advising.
