Inspiring Success, Impacting the World

Welcome to the University of Central Florida’s College of Engineering and Computer Science.

We are one of the nation’s largest producers of engineering and computer science talent. In fact, UCF is recognized as the nation’s #1 workforce supplier and a top-preferred supplier to the aerospace and defense industry.

Our graduates are getting hired, and they’re making a real difference for our nation, for society, and the world.

Innovation and a strong entrepreneurial spirit abound in our college, where our 13,000 diverse, academically-talented students thrive in a culture of opportunity created by our world-class faculty, our alumni, our powerful industry sponsors large and small, and hundreds of employers located right here in Orlando.

In this college, success inspires success. I see examples every day:  a student club wins a national competition; a student and professor transform their lab discovery into a promising technology startup; a student is named one of the world’s best in her academic field; a faculty member wins a highly-competitive national research award with potential for wide societal impact; and so much more.

I encourage you to visit this website’s newsroom where you’ll see our most recent stories of inspiration and achievement.

The UCF College of Engineering and Computer Science now has more than 41,000 alumni. Many have become leaders in their industries, successful entrepreneurs, pioneering researchers, and world-changing problem solvers. Enjoy reading about our brightest and most distinguished alumni on this website.

I invite you to follow UCF CECS on social media, and to check our events calendar for upcoming dates and opportunities, such as our must-see Senior Design virtual+live showcase every fall and spring. Each showcase features more than 100 engineering and computer science projects made by collaborative teams of  graduating seniors. It’s a great opportunity for hundreds of alumni, industry partners, recruiters and friends to see firsthand the energy, innovation and entrepreneurial spirit of our graduates.

On behalf of our students, faculty and alumni, thank you for stopping by and, as always…

Go Knights and Charge On!
