The Florida Engineering Education Delivery System (FEEDS) delivers academic programs to engineers worldwide. Delivery sites include university FEEDS centers, industry and government agency sites, and the internet. Course materials originate at FEEDS centers, which are located in the colleges and schools of engineering of Florida institutions having accredited degree programs. Florida Agricultural and Mechanical – Florida State Universities (FAMU – FSU), Florida Atlantic University (FAU), Florida International University (FIU), The University of Central Florida (UCF), The University of Florida (UF), The University of South Florida (USF), University of Miami (UM), Florida Institute of Technology (FIT), and Embry Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU), and the University of North Florida (UNF) are the institutions housing these FEEDS centers. Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU), and The University of West Florida (UWF) serve as FEEDS centers, facilitating the delivery of degree programs and courses in their respective geographic areas. Many participating industry and government agency receiving locations make up the remainder of the FEEDS sites.
FEEDS was developed in response to the need of engineering graduates working in industry for access to quality graduate programs and extended studies in engineering. FEEDS, in effect, provides a unique university experience for place-bound engineers. The innovative use of electronic, computer, and telecommunications media brings students and professors together intellectually, regardless of location.
Graduate engineering courses are available to support degree programs (Master of Engineering or Master of Science). Non-degree certificate programs and courses are available to support professional development. Degree programs are available in the following disciplines:
Civil Engineering Civil EnvironmentalStructures/Mechanics Structures Transportation Water Resources
Computer Science and Engineering Computer and Information Sciences Computer EngineeringComputer ScienceComputer SystemsInformation Systems
Electrical Engineering Biomedical Communications Computer EngineeringControls Digital SystemsElectromagneticsElectronic CircuitsElectro-opticsNetworksPowerRadar SystemsRoboticsSignal Processing Solid StateSuperconductors VLSI
Industrial EngineeringEngineering Management Operations Research Robotics Simulation Systems
Mechanical Engineering Automatic Controls and Robotics Biomedical Computational Mechanics Electronic Packaging Energy Analysis Energy Systems/Mechanical Systems Fluid Mechanics Heat Transfer HVAC Machine Systems/Thermal Systems Manufacturing Systems Engineering Manufacturing Methods: CIM and Robotics Mechanical Mechanical Systems Analysis
Courses in other engineering disciplines (aerospace, chemical, coastal, engineering sciences, materials and ocean) are offered to meet the needs of engineers in these areas. Other engineering disciplines may be added as the demand arises. Students at any of the Centers, in principle, have access to the graduate programs of any of the other Centers. FEEDS is committed to delivering programs that meet the needs of the community it serves.
Each center has a director or coordinator responsible for supervision of the FEEDS operation at that center and for coordination with the academic Schools.
The terms and policies for admission vary slightly from university to university. Prospective students must refer to the admission procedures and the catalog of the primary university of interest for specific information.
There are two student classifications for FEEDS participants: graduate degree-seeking and non-degree-seeking.
State University System minimum requirements for graduate degree seeking students:
Notes: The total number of credits, which may be transferred to a degree program, is limited (normally six to nine credit hours); approval is never automatic. Students not meeting graduate admission requirements may be admitted in a conditional or provisional status. Requirements in addition to the minimums stated above may be specified for some degree programs.
Students enrolled in distance learning sections (including FEEDS) of video-based courses conducted in the Donald D. Farshing Video Production Facility will be assessed a fee of $125 per course to defray some of the costs involved in delivering these classes.
The allowed transfer of credit varies between institutions and individual degree programs. In general, only graduate level courses may be transferred into a degree program, with a grade of “B” (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) or above, from a regionally accredited institution; the credits allowed will apply to the degree program but the grades earned will not be included in the student’s GPA. The maximum number of credit hours normally allowed ranges from six to nine hours; consult the graduate advisor for possible exceptions to this rule for credits transferred within the SUS.
All students, degree and non-degree seeking, must register each term to enroll in one or more courses. Registration takes place approximately 30-60 days prior to each semester at selected centers throughout Florida. Contact the UNF FEEDS Center, telephone (904) 620-2695, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org for detailed information. Each student is responsible for submitting adds, drops and withdrawals within the published deadline, using the proper forms.
