We Are Space U

When the U.S. returns humans to the moon in the coming years, there’s a good chance that UCF research will have played a role in the return, whether from landing there safely, harvesting its resources or training the next generation of space scientists.

At the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, our researchers are leading the charge, with several innovative research projects that support NASA’s Artemis program. From hypersonic travel to the development of new materials for spacecraft, our students and faculty are ready to take space exploration to new heights. 

Find how our students contributed to the Artemis mission through M-STAR fellowships and the NASA MINDS event. And meet our alumnus who worked on Artemis and captured the launch through stellar photography.
