Mission

The mission of Global UCF is to foster cultural diversity, create access to UCF for international students, and promote the University of Central Florida’s internationalization strategy by recruiting talented students from around the world and providing them with comprehensive English language, academic exchange and acculturation programs that lead to student success.

By the numbers

UCF is one of the most dynamic universities in the country. Forty-five years ago, there were less than two thousand students enrolled at UCF. Today, there are 63,000. That’s just one reason why we were named a top "Up-and-Coming" university by U.S. News and World Report.

But it’s not all about the numbers. What is most important about UCF is our pioneering spirit, our commitment to making life better in the classroom and the community and our student-centered approach to everything we do.

Aerospace Engineering

Campus Full time September 2017 USA Orlando

The Aerospace Engineering program prepares graduates to have knowledge covering aeronautical engineering, and some topics from astronautical engineering. The program also prepares graduates to have design competence that includes integration of aeronautical or astronautical topics. [+]

Aerospace Engineering The Aerospace Engineering undergraduate program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of www.abet.org. The Aerospace Engineering program prepares graduates to have knowledge covering aeronautical engineering, and some topics from astronautical engineering. The program also prepares graduates to have design competence that includes integration of aeronautical or astronautical topics. The students of MAE have ample opportunities for internship and co-ops in the metropolitan area, with corporations such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Mitsubishi Power Generation, and Siemens. Although our degree programs do not require internships or co-ops to meet graduation requirements, a good percentage of our students enjoy the possibility to participate in these experiences. Our students also enjoy the chance to participate in faculty’s funded research, gaining hands-on experience in the laboratory that will strengthen their academic foundation, and enhance their personal skill sets. Many of our undergraduate students have been recognized at the university and national levels for their research, publications, and conference participation. The MAE pupils are very active in extracurricular activities, through membership in student organizations and clubs, such as American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). Admission Requirements Students wanting to declare a major in an engineering discipline must be in good academic standing and must have a “C” (2.0) or better in each of the following courses or their equivalents: MAC 2311C, MAC 2312, PHY 2048C, and CHM 2045C or CHS 1440. Students wanting to declare a major in an engineering discipline must complete a change of major after the withdrawal deadline in... [-]

Computer Engineering

Campus Full time September 2017 USA Orlando

Computer Engineering (CpE) advances humankind by improving the underlying digital hardware, computing networks, and production software systems that impact our everyday lives. As an Engineering discipline, it focuses on the tradeoff of Execution Throughput versus Hardware/Software/Energy costs of all types of computers from portable embedded devices and miniature sensor nodes, up through supercomputers.

Computer Engineering Computer Engineering (CpE) advances humankind by improving the underlying digital hardware, computing networks, and production software systems that impact our everyday lives. As an Engineering discipline, it focuses on the tradeoff of Execution Throughput versus Hardware/Software/Energy costs of all types of computers from portable embedded devices and miniature sensor nodes, up through supercomputers. Thus, fundamental computing components and the theory underlying their operation are emphasized, and then reinforced through laboratory design projects. This degree program prepares graduates for successful, profitable, and lifelong careers in computer systems design, mobile and embedded computing devices, sensor networks, reconfigurable logic, software engineering, and machine intelligence applications. The Undergraduate Catalog is the official source of degree requirements for all undergraduate programs based upon the year you are accepted to UCF. Computer Engineering students at UCF experience several advantages: In 2014, U.S. News and World Report ranked CpE programs at UCF as 58th out of 94 schools nationally. State-of-the-art hardware laboratories, software design projects, embedded systems kits, and design tools are utilized throughout the UCF CpE program. A two-semester sequence of Senior Design for UCF CpE undergraduates enables participation in a realistic multi-disciplinary hardware and software team to design an exciting real-life operational system, as a capstone learning experience. UCF's CpE faculty offer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs) in a variety of topics including Intelligent Systems and Machine Learning. An Accelerated BS - MS degree program in CpE is available to qualified UCF students. UCF student organizations such as Eta Kappa Nu (the Electrical... [-]

Computer Science A Computer Science degree is the foundation for many of the world’s most exciting and profitable careers. Computer Science emphasizes the mathematical and theoretical foundations of computing, rather than teaching specific technologies. A tremendous number of opportunities in a variety of fields awaits computer science graduates, including robotics, computer gaming, virtual reality, computer vision, media convergence, digital, evolutionary computing, computer architecture and so much more. COMPUTER SCIENCE ADVANTAGES The UCF Programming Team is one of the best in the world! CS teams compete annually in the ACM’s International Programming Contest, and our CS team has an unmatched record — finishing in the Southeast region’s top three every year since 1982! CS teams have earned five Top-10 finishes out of 6,000 teams world-wide. CS has prestigious research programs for undergraduates (REUs). CS has been an NSF REU site in Computer Vision since NSF started the program in 1987. The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) student chapter, additional Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs), IEEE Computer Society and UPE Computer Science Honor Society and the CS Foundation Exam all provide real-life benefits including networking, face-to-face meetings with experts and career experience. The Department’s new home is the Harris Corp. Engineering Center — an ultra high-tech building with revolutionary equipment, computers and labs for students. The Computer Science Foundation Exam is a qualifying test all CS majors must pass to advance to upper-level CS courses. Nationally, only UCF’s CS Program uses a test this way to qualify its students. The exam covers... [-]
