Particle Engineering Research Center (PERC)

Information about the centerís research, education and technology transfer programs is available at 352- 846-1194 or

Engineering and Industrial Experiment Station (EIES)

The EIES research program provides opportunities for undergraduate students to participate in an exciting research environment. Activities range from specially designed credit-earning research projects to field and laboratory experiments in concert with nationally recognized faculty. Many of these research activities also offer financial benefits through part-time employment on sponsored projects.

Division of Student Affairs

Engineering student services are provided through the Division of Student Affairs located in Weil Hall rooms 312 and 204. The division is responsible on a college-wide basis for coordinating academic advising and developing and implementing other student support services, including career/lifestyle counseling, success workshops, study halls, tutoring and mentoring.

The division informs students of educational opportunities such as scholarships, tuition waivers, co-op and internship opportunities and available campus resources. The division also serves as liaison between the College of Engineering and university-wide student services and facilities.

Multicultural and Diversity Programs

These programs provide focused support to under-represented groups in the engineering profession. Students receive the personal, academic, social and cultural support they need to achieve academic success.

Services include orientation to UF and the college, academic and career advice, leadership development, engineering success skill development, counseling, financial assistance and tutoring.

Pre-Collegiate and College Transition Programs

The College of Engineering is involved in a wide range of programs that support student preparation in grades K-12. These include the Gator Engineering Outreach program, High School Outreach, SECME and Engineering GatorTrax.

The college also offers transition programs for incoming freshmen and community college transfer students to help them adjust to college life at the university.

Successful Transition through Enhanced Preparation for Undergraduate Programs (STEPUP) is a program with residential and nonresidential components designed to provide incoming freshmen with success skills and preparation in engineering foundation courses. The Engineering Freshman Transition Program (EFTP) also supports this objective.

The Transfer Student Transition Program (TSTP) highlights college expectations and eases the transition from community college to university life.

Information about these programs is available in the Division of Student Affairs Office in Weil Hall, Rooms 204 and 312.
