EDGE enables engineering professional, military members, and students worldwide to participate in courses, certificates, and degree programs from the UF College of Engineering. Engineers can earn a master’s degree at a time and place convenient to them through programs from UF EDGE.  The Mechanical Engineering (Dynamics, Systems & Controls) program is offered at University of Florida.


As an EDGE student, you view the same course lectures, complete the same assignments and exams as University of Florida campus based engineering students.

The Mechanical Engineering (Dynamics, Systems & Controls) programme

UF EDGE offers online master's degrees from seven of our gator engineering departments with multiple degree program tracks (emphasized areas of study) available in these seven majors. Each master's degree program consists of 10 courses. Courses are offered on a semesterly basis, with various course offerings for the fall, spring and summer terms. You can begin a degree program in any one of these three semesters and are free to take as many or as few courses as your work and life schedule permits each semester.

Master's degrees can be completed in as little as 24 months. The courses you will be taking in the master's degree program are combined classroom courses where local UF graduate students are participating in the same courses that you will be watching online and you will be able to communicate with these on-campus students through the UF online eLearning environment. Course lectures are captured daily from these live lecture classrooms and are posted online the same day in an interopable format both for download or immediate playback. 

All course assignments are submitted are returned electronically and exams are administered at your place of work using a proctor and are emailed or faxed in for grading. You are never required to travel to campus. Also, since the classes you are completing are the exact same courses our on-campus graduate students take, your degree earned is the exact same de gree as our on-campus students, with absolutely no mention of "distance learning" on your diploma or transcript.
