Best Mechanical Engineering colleges in Florida for 2021

University of Florida
Gainesville, FL

The Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering

When the University of Florida Athletic Association wanted to fix the permanent seat backs for their season ticket holders at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium but discovered that replacement parts were no longer available, where did they turn for help? They contacted the mechanical engineering department, of course. A team of innovative students there reverse-engineered the original parts, improved the design, and manufactured them in their laboratory. Cheering the Gators to victory is now more safe and comfortable than ever! With 1,600 undergrads and more than 450 graduate students (including 200 PhD students), UF has more aspiring mechanical and aerospace engineers than many colleges have total enrollees. As might be expected at a place this large, something exciting is always happening. Five dedicated undergraduate teaching labs provide ample space for students to test out their ideas, and a full-time mechanical engineering faculty of 50-plus ensures plenty of guidance. Outside the classroom, students get involved in discipline-related extracurriculars such as the UF chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. Whether you’re into building a robot, designing a human-powered vehicle, or coming up with the next advancement in biomedical technology, there’s a team waiting for you. Football players definitely aren’t the only great competitors at UF!
