The new doctoral program aligns with the University’s strategic vision for research that impacts Northwest Florida’s economic development and technology enterprise. It will serve the manufacturing, health care, defense and other high-tech industries, providing critical support to high-demand career fields.

I’ve envisioned a program like this for a long time. It will attract top young talent from the world. This is such a great move not only for UWF and IHMC, but also for Pensacola and the state.
