Our Common Bond Is More Than A Rallying Cry. It’s A Calling.

At the University of Florida and the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering, we ask not about what we’ve achieved, but what we can accomplish. Fueled by the work of New Engineers, outstanding engineering faculty, and students who are both technically excellent and capable of leading and innovating in a world that is increasingly global and interdisciplinary, UF Engineers have transformed the state and begun to make a national and global impact on education and society.

Armed with passion and driven by purpose, UF engineers face limitless horizons, turning everyday opportunity into uncommon reality. Together, we go further, we go stronger, we Go Greater.

How Can You Make An Impact?

By Powering the New Engineer. By powering the people who will make life-changing discoveries and develop technologies and solutions that will change the way we live, work and play. When forward-thinking people invest in engineering education and research, and the facilities that support them, it changes the landscape of possibilities for our students and our faculty.

With your support, UF engineers can innovate, design and create solutions to solve the world’s greatest challenges. With new institutional leadership at the helm and the power of The Gator Nation at our back, there’s never been a better time in our journey to continue making history.
