Research and innovation at the College of Engineering at the University of South Florida are focused on creating local, national and global solutions to society's most difficult challenges.  From developing sources of clean energy and drinking water to enhancing the quality of life for people with disabilities, USF engineering researchers seek to make the world a better place.  

The college offers an intellectually challenging environment with a diverse student and faculty population.  We accept applications on an ongoing basis and doctoral appointments typically include tuition waiver and sponsorship for the academic year.

It is also home to many outstanding faculty, such at mechanical engineering Professor Autar Kaw, 2012 U.S. Professor of the Year, electrical engineering Distinguished University Professor Richard Gitlin, a National Academy of Engineering member, and civil engineering professor Rajan Sen, a Jefferson Science Fellow, just to name a few.
