Association of Computer Engineers (ACE)

UF-ACE-LogoSmallThe Association of Computer Engineers (ACE) is a new student organization at UF that was established for the purpose of creating an environment where students from computer engineering and other related majors can collaborate and effectively work together and further their professional development. After becoming a UF student organization in the Fall of 2014, ACE has already grown to 61 official members (on GatorConnect) and over 130 members on the ACE Facebook. Activities include computer-related projects, presentations, tutoring, mentoring, and special events such as Hackaton (Fall 2014). The ever popular HackerU workshops (Spring 2015) involve building a facial tracker using a Raspberry Pi and servo motors. Don’t miss the opportunity to be involved with a unique and dynamic organization.

Computer Engineering at UF

uf-towerComputer Engineering (CpE) is a discipline that embodies the science and technology of design, construction, implementation, and maintenance of software and hardware components of computer systems and computer-controlled equipment. At the University of Florida, Computer Engineering (CpE) brings a core competency and unique value of integrated knowledge in both computer software and hardware; along with the engineering analysis, design, and implementation skills necessary to strike a balance among computer systems, hardware, and software as well as theory and application. Studies in Computer Engineering integrate fields from both Computer Science (CS) and Electrical Engineering (EE).

Propective students should follow the admission procedure described below. Also given below is an overview of the CpE curriculum with a link to the curriculum details. Finally, information is provided for career opportunities, including opportunities for internships to provide CpE students meaningful industrial experience and opportunities for undergraduate research, with the ultimate goal of graduation and employment at top companies and/or graduate studies at top universities.
