The UF EDGE is the distance learning program of the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering at the University of Florida. This program is a viable option for the graduate student who cannot participate in on-campus classes due to a multitude of reasons. Courses are offered via online delivery of all course lectures and materials. Information on the tuition & fees directly associated with the EDGE program can be found HERE.

Students interested in completing their Master of Science (M.S.) or Master of Engineering (M.E.) (both non-thesis) degrees via UF EDGE, must be admitted into the graduate program in the Industrial and Systems Engineering program. For program requirements, click HERE.
