Think astronauts and engineers are the only ones who make an impact on the space industry? Think again. Earning a degree in the arts, business and hospitality, as well as engineering and science, can help you make a giant leap toward a career that bridges the gap between the humanities and space technology.

“So much progress is being made in space, and students are in a position now where they can really create the future.”

— Professor Joshua Colwell

A Next-generation Research University

The University of Central Florida was born in 1963, just as NASA was getting ready to do the impossible — send astronauts to the moon. Educating students with unrelenting curiosity and the drive to turn big dreams into reality is a core UCF mission. Through programs in planetary sciences, aerospace engineering, and modeling and simulation, we are educating today’s students to create the innovations that are fueling NASA’s and private industry’s deep space missions to Mars and beyond. And we’re just getting started.
