UCF Pegasus in the Clouds - Stars, Space and Astronomy

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.

A Next-generation Research University

Founded in 1963 with the mission to provide talent for Central Florida and the growing U.S. space program, UCF has been making an impact on our state, our nation — and outer space — ever since. UCF faculty are part of several NASA missions, including OSIRIS-REx and New Horizons. UCF scientists developed research-grade simulants that replicate soil on the moon, Mars and asteroids. And UCF leads the science mission at the Arecibo Observatory, a National Science Foundation-supported facility that is home to one of world’s largest radio telescopes. Together, we are truly reaching for the stars.
