There are some excellent engineering programs at the universities in Florida, and for some disciplines they are the best programs in the world. The engineering colleges doing the most research and those with the best reputation among their peers are described below.
Hands down the best engineering college at engineering schools whose highest degree is a doctorate in the state is at the University of Florida. Their graduate degree program is ranked 35th in the country by U.S. News & World Report in their 2014 listings. The UF College of Engineering is particularly strong in the biological/agricultural and material engineering fields.
All of the engineering programs offered at UF are as follows: aerospace, agricultural, biomedical, chemical, civil, computer engineering, computer science, electrical, engineering management, environmental, manufacturing, materials, mechanical and nuclear.
The undergraduate engineering program is listed among the best in the nation. In the U.S. News rankings from 2014 of top prgrams at engineering schools whose highest degree is a backelor’s or master’s, it comes in at #10, the highest in the state on that list. Its aerospace/aeronautical/astronautical program is in particular very good. In fact it’s known as the number one such program in the country!
Probably second overall to UF for engineering programs is UCF. Their graduate engineering program ranks 70th in the nation. Their civil, computer engineering, electrical, environmental, industrial and mechanical engineering programs were also noted in the rankings.
FSU and FAMU have a joint engineering college. Their graduate engineering program ranks 92nd in the country. Their graduate civil, electrical, industrial and mechanical engineering were also noted in the rankings.
USF’s graduate engineering program ranked 112th in the nation. Their strongest engineering programs are civil, electrical and industrial/manufacturing engineering.
The engineering school at the Florida Institute of Technology was listed among the best undergraduate and graduate engineering colleges in the country. Its graduate aerospace/aeronautical/astronautical is FIT’s strongest engineering program.
Though not receiving a numerical rank, FAU’s and FIU’s undergraduate and graduate and UNF’s undergraduate engineering programs were still listed on U.S. News & World Report’s most recent ranking.
