Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering (ME) is among the oldest and broadest of all engineering disciplines.  ME applies the principles of engineering, physics, materials and engineering science for the analysis, design, manufacturing, testing and maintenance of mechanical systems.  ME is an interdisciplinary major that involves the production and usage of heat and mechanical power, encompasses mechanical and systems design, testing and manufacturing, controls and optimization, and overlaps into the discipline of aerospace engineering, as well as metallurgical, civil, electrical, petroleum, manufacturing, chemical and biomedical engineering.

Mechanical Engineers lead the way in nearly every product you might interact with, impacting how we move from automobiles to artificial hips, and how we see from novel displays to state-of-the-art contact lenses.  We do it all!       

The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) at the University of Florida administers the Bachelor of Science, Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Mechanical Engineering.

Please explore our Prospective Students page to learn more details about our undergraduate and graduate programs, as well as our Research page to learn about our research projects and faculty interests.

Students are the lifeblood of any university.  As you consider your future educational plans, we thank you for exploring MAE at the University of Florida.
