The University of Central Florida has been recognized as a most-admired company by a spectrum of publications that cover the impact of minorities in critical scientific areas. The list includes surveys of readers and editors of U.S. Black Engineer & Information Technology, Hispanic Engineer & Information Technology, Women of Color and Science Spectrum Online magazines regarding their impressions of diversity programs at today’s top organizations.

UCF and the other recipients were recognized last week at the 24th Black Engineer of the Year STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Conference in Baltimore.

“Our recognition as a most-admired employer is a testament to the importance of diversity and mentoring to the faculty, staff and students at the College of Engineering & Computer Science and throughout our university,” said Marwan Simaan, the college’s dean. “We are constantly working hard to enhance the diverse and inclusive environment that helps to make us one of the most dynamic engineering and computer science colleges in the country.”
