UCF and the College encourage all students to look into scholarships. There are literally thousands of scholarship programs, but locating, evaluating, and applying for them is entirely up to you. We urge you to research all possible avenues and to start the process early.
If you have not applied for financial aid at UCF, we urge you to do so. You may be considered for some additional scholarships just by having a current FAFSA on file in the Financial Aid Office.
Supporters of the College of Engineering and Computer Science are proud to offer a multitude of scholarship opportunities to our students. To apply for CECS Scholarships:
CECS Scholarship recipients are expected to send a thank you letter to the donor of the scholarship. A copy of the letter also needs to be submitted to the CECS Academic Affairs Office ENG 107.
If you have any questions related to the scholarship offerings or scholarship process, please contact the CECS Academic Affairs Office, ENG 107, email@example.com.
CECS has relationships with over 150 industry partners and 80 percent of engineering graduates have job-related experience in their chosen field before they graduate.
Our Orlando location is part of a high tech corridor with over 4,200 high tech companies. Adjacent to the main UCF campus, the Central Florida Research Park is home to some of the world’s top private research and development companies, including one of the largest laser and electro optical industries on the planet. The Research Park is also home to the high tech research arm for the Army, Navy and Air Force and a short drive to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.
If you are interested in an internship or co-op, our Career Services Office and our Office of Experiential Learning can tell you about these opportunities that are available.
Student organizations are a great way to get involved at UCF. These organizations allow students to network with major organizations, meet new people, and share common interests with other students in the college.
If you would like to find out more information, get involved, or contact these organizations, please visit our Office of Student Involvement website at: www.getinvolveducf.com.
Here are some of the organizations that students can be involved with:
The Florida Legislature found that it was necessary in the interest of public health and safety to regulate the practice of engineering in the state of Florida. The Florida Board of Professional Engineers (FBPE) is responsible for reviewing applications, administering examinations, licensing qualified applicants, and regulating the practice of engineering throughout the state.
The FE Exam is one of the requirements to obtain your professional engineering license. (These exams are overseen and administrated by the Florida Board of Professional Engineers and NOT the University of Central Florida or the College of Engineering & Computer Science.)
For official information regarding the FE and PE Exams, please visit the FBPE website at: www.fbpe.org.
The exam takes place twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall.
The registration deadline is SIX MONTHS before the actual exam.
The FE Exam is REQUIRED for Civil, Construction, Environmental, and Industrial Engineering majors.
For additional FAQ's please visit the FBPE FAQ's page.
Registration for the April Exam Dates closes in October*
Registration for the October Exam Dates closes in April*
*For exact application deadlines and requirements please view the exam dates document here.
After you have applied for the FE Exam with the FBPE you will need to register with The National Council of Examiners to select your testing location. For more information please visit, www.ncees.org.
Free Practice Exam!
The National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying has provided a free online, timed practice exam that will evaluate your readiness for the FE Examination. There is no cost to take the online exam but there is a cost for the actual exam.
