We’re focused on you.

UCF provides you a top-notch educational experience. Your undergraduate experience will teach you to analyze, question, discover, and achieve excellence. No matter what your area of study, there are research programs and work opportunities that enhance your education.

Researching

the future

Last year, UCF received nearly $123 million in research funding. The Central Florida Research Park, adjacent to the main campus, is ranked as one of the top research parks in the nation. It is home to more than 90 high-tech companies that employ more than 9,000 people.

Undergraduate Research at UCF offers paid research positions to students. One million dollars is allocated annually to support student research. This means hundreds of research opportunities for you.

It’s not just what you know

— it’s who you know.

UCF’s partnerships with industry, organizations and Central Florida communities continue to grow and enhance instruction, research and service. Contacts made as a student can lead to job offers after graduation. Our faculty and administrators work closely with the region’s leaders. In turn, the region’s leaders provide curricular advice and financial support to UCF.

While at UCF, my research projects and internship played a significant role in earning my current position as safety analyst with JetBlue Airways.
