The profession of engineering requires highly educated men and women dedicated to the betterment of society through technological innovation and creative problem solving. The faculty of the School of Engineering (SoE) offers accredited programs in Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering to meet an ever-increasing demand. Our programs are noted for first-rate classroom instruction, hands-on laboratory experiences, and extensive design project opportunities. Students may also participate — often in paid positions — in research projects with faculty mentors. Numerous cooperative education opportunities are also available to students wishing to gain practical experience before graduation.
Students wishing to take courses in any engineering major or minor must be accepted (by an engineering advisor sign-off) before enrolling in any engineering course. Applications for the major should be made through the University Admissions Office in UNF Hall, Building 53. Application should be made at least two months before the planned enrollment in any engineering program courses. All engineering majors are advised through the school office.
The engineering profession is enriched by a large number of professional organizations and many have student chapters at UNF. Students are encouraged to participate in activities of these chapters, including the following:

Academic programs in the UNF School of Engineering provide our students the maximum opportunity for leadership, innovation, and success in their careers and lives. We do this by:
All members of our learning community — students, faculty, staff, administrators, and our industry partners — foster individual and group success through continuous improvement, mutual respect and support, and the highest expectations. Only the most rigorous standards of ethical behavior and collegiality are acceptable. Each member of our learning community is expected to think critically and imaginatively, to be responsible for one’s own actions, to take the initiative to improve the common good, to have entrepreneurial spirit, and to work effectively in teams. We believe that only through exemplary service and leadership in the profession and society does the engineer become a true professional. [Go to top]
All undergraduate engineering programs in the UNF School of Engineering are transformational - this is the very nature of an engineering education at UNF. However, in addition to a rigorous, focused curriculum students have multiple opportunities to participate in significant research projects, regional and national design competitions, international travel and study, community and international outreach activities, student chapter leadership, cooperative education experiences, and internships.
Once admitted to an engineering program advising is conducted through the School of Engineering office (room 2500, Building 50). Initially, the SoE academic advisor assigns a faculty advisor and prepares a program of study outlining all graduation requirements. Thereafter, the student meets each semester with the academic and faculty advisors to develop a course schedule and track progress through the degree program.
