Prospective Engineering Students

The College of Engineering is full of excitement, discovery, and opportunity. It's the perfect place to bring your interests and curiosity. The engineering community is characterized by a diversity of people, ideas, experiences and opportunities that will broaden your knowledge and understanding.

USF engineering students are involved in many activities that help fuel their education. From jet car racing to developing a tool that picks up rock samples on asteroids for NASA, USF engineering students are nothing short of amazing.  



The Makecourse teaches the basic skills for engineering design projects. In 15 weeks students learn using CAD software, realizing their designs with 3D printers, building control systems using a microcontroller (Arduino), and writing code in C++.  


SOAR  USF Society of Aeronautics and Rocketry
USF students participated in the NASA Student Launch Initiative at NASA's Marshall Space Center in Huntsville, AL, April 2016. They competitively built and launched a 12-ft. rocket that traveled one mile.  Join SOAR and help to build the next Bull-istic rocket.


NASA Micro-g NExT Challenge
In 2015, three USF teams of engineering students competitively earned a place among 19 university groups to participate in this challenge at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston.  USF sent more teams than any other university and were the only Florida university teams selected.  

SAE Racing

USF Racing Society of Automotive Engineers
SAE is an organization of students who collectively design, fabricate, and race Formula SAE® cars. The team is comprised of freshman, sophomores, juniors, seniors and graduate students from across the nation including international students.
