State College Partnerships

The Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering is home to both the Gator Engineering at Santa Fe and the Gator Engineering at State College of Florida programs. These programs, collaborations between the University of Florida and Santa Fe College and State College of Florida, are innovative B.S. engineering degree programs. These programs allow a cohort of students to begin their coursework at a state college, gain admission to UF as early as the first semester, continue coursework at the state college for two more semesters (or until completion of all math and science critical tracking courses) and then matriculate to UF campus to continue their engineering study in their chosen major.
