The Engineering programs at UWF equip students to excel in various forms of engineering or pursue graduate studies. There are three specialization choices offered: electrical, computer and mechanical engineering.
UWF engineering students are taught in well-equipped facilities by energetic and approachable professors dedicated to superior teaching and hands-on experience. With two locations (Pensacola Campus and Emerald Coast Campus at Fort Walton Beach), students have many opportunities to engage in internship and research activities as well as three specializations to choose from.
Electrical Engineering (EE) utilizes all phases of development and properties of electric energy. Our ABET accredited BSEE degree prepares students to specialize in areas such as electronics, robotics, electronic-based communications, signal and image processing, controls, and power systems
Computer Engineering (CE) employs the development of computer hardware and software solutions for today's emerging technologies. Our ABET accredited BSCE provides students with a strong background in engineering analysis, design, and the implementation skills necessary to succeed in the workplace.
Mechanical Engineering (ME) is the design, manufacturing, analysis, and maintenance of mechanical systems. The BSME prepares students for either grad school or a career in various industry sectors, including aerospace, manufacturing, energy, environment, transportation, materials, and/or structures.
Our Electrical Engineering program and our Computer Engineering program are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET. ABET is the recognized global accreditor of college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering and engineering technology and is among the most respected accreditation organizations in the United States.
ABET accreditation is assurance that a college or a university program meets the quality standards established by the profession for which it prepares its students. For example, an accredited engineering program must meet the quality standards set by the engineering profession. An accredited computer science program must meet the quality standards set by the computing profession.
