Chemical Engineering

Although chemical engineering has existed for only 100 years, its name is no longer completely descriptive of this dynamic profession. The work of chemical engineers is not restricted to the chemical industry, chemical changes or chemistry. Instead, modern chemical engineers are concerned with all the physical, chemical and biological changes of matter that can produce an economic product or result that is useful to mankind.

Chemical engineering degrees are offered through the Department of Chemical Engineering.

Graduate

Civil Engineering

Civil engineering is the oldest and most diverse branch of engineering. Broadly defined, civil engineers adapt the physical features of the earth to the needs of society. Approximately one out of four engineers is engaged in civil engineering.

Civil engineering degrees are offered through the Department of Civil & Coastal Engineering.

Undergraduate

Graduate

Coastal & Oceanographic Engineering

Coastal and oceanographic engineering is closely tied to other marine disciplines such as marine biology, oceanography, and marine geology, Ocean engineers design and develop equipment that functions in the harsh conditions of the ocean environment to allow the collection of valuable data. As changes to the climate continue to raise sea levels, coastal engineers’ work will be increasingly valuable in the construction and energy industries.

Coastal and oceanographic engineering degrees are offered through the Department of Civil & Coastal Engineering.

Graduate

Computer Engineering

Computer engineering is the design, construction, implementation and maintenance of computer hardware and software. Studies in computer engineering integrate fields from both computer science and electrical engineering. Specialization in Computer Engineering is provided via technical electives with software or hardware emphases from the Department of Computer and Information Science (www.cise.ufl.edu) and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (www.ece.ufl.edu).

Computer engineering degrees are offered through the Department of Computer & Information Science & Engineering.

Undergraduate

Graduate

Computer Science

The computer science program combines a strong engineering-oriented technical basis with a flexible interdisciplinary component and an emphasis on communication skills. This versatility will be increasingly important as computers become essential tools in an ever-increasing number of disciplines.

Computer science degrees are offered through the Department of Computer & Information Science & Engineering.

Undergraduate

Digital Arts & Sciences

The Digital Arts & Sciences program crosses college boundaries between engineering and fine arts, integrating engineering and design, with a core computer science curriculum that places special emphasis on human-centered computing.

Digital arts and sciences degrees are offered through the Department of Computer & Information Science & Engineering.

Undergraduate
