Increase your earning potential and open the door for specialized career opportunities with a Master of Science in Engineering from UWF.

Why Study Engineering at UWF?

The Master of Science in Engineering degree is a joint venture between the Dr. Muhammad Harunur Rashid Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

We offer one-on-one interaction with highly trained faculty and a flexible course schedule. You can choose to attend live lectures at the Pensacola campus, UWF Emerald Coast in Fort Walton Beach, watch a live feed of the lecture anywhere in the world or watch recorded lectures at your convenience.

What You Will Learn

You will choose one of three high-demand areas of specialization—power, robotics or advanced materials—and mix in a wide variety of elective courses to develop a program that best suits your needs.

Regardless of which specialization you choose, you will enroll in Principles of Engineering Analysis, which covers topics in advanced engineering analysis, including linear algebra, partial differential equations, Fourier series, complex variables and vector calculus with numerical techniques. You will take three courses in your area of specialization, concluding with a thesis or an engineering project.

A limited number of graduate research and teaching assistantships exist for highly qualified students.

UWF programs offered at the Pensacola campus or UWF Emerald Coast may require online courses. Please discuss the program requirements and planning with your academic advisor.


The Smart Power Systems with Data Analytics concentration focuses on operation and control problems and solution techniques, including the current and advanced technologies and trends in development that will shape future electrical power systems.

The Robotics and Systems concentration focuses on the mathematical and algorithmic principles underlying intelligent systems and robotics. Topics include knowledge representation and reasoning, perception and sensing in agents and efficient methods of search, as well as ethical issues of intelligent systems.

The Materials and Manufacturing concentration focuses on the microstructure of high-strength fiber materials (glass, carbon, polymer, ceramic fibers) and matrix materials (polymer, metal, ceramic and carbon matrices) with various applications in mind.
