Active Classrooms

Active classrooms reverse the lecture and homework elements of the class. Faculty use a variety of tools to disseminate information outside of the classroom, including PowerPoint presentations, videos and other resources. Students utilize those tools to learn information they would typically receive in class, with the flexibility to work at their own pace and location.

The College of Engineering (CoE) is committed to provide students with internship opportunities as well as career options upon graduation. Here are a few resources for both students and recruiters to help great future engineers meet wonderful firms. The University of Miami is known internationally as a highly selective, diverse source of bright and talented students, taught by a distinguished faculty involved in today’s cutting edge research. The CoE is a preferred recruiting partner for many of the world’s leading firms, including GE, IBM, Allstate, FPL, Lockheed Martin, NASA, Cordis, UPS, and many others.

ViAComp

ViAComp – Virtual Academic Computing – is a cloud computing platform for the CoE students. ViAComp provides free remote access to educational software programs anytime and anywhere. ViAComp also works on mobile platforms like an iPhone. ViaComp was developed for the benefit of students, who needed access to software in their research and academic projects. ViAComp contains over 50 software modules including Solid Works, Labview, ProEngineer, and Minitab

Maker Space

The J&J Collaboratory and its supporting Prototyping Facility offer world-class prototyping facilities.

Research Opportunities for Students:

  1. NSF-REUs (National Science Foundations, Research Experiences for Undergraduates). There are 2 types of NSF-REUs which are typically paid positions. One type is associated with single research grants that are awarded to the University through an individual Professor’s efforts. The other type are “site” REUs which are awards made to a particular University to host a larger group of students for work on several different research projects. The “site” REUs typically take place during the summer and usually require that the undergraduate student travel to the University hosting the site. The “site” REUs typically provide stipends that help offset the cost of housing. Announcements for “site” NSF-REUs are typically released between the December and February preceding the corresponding summer. Additional details about site REUs is available in the Powerpoint presentation and fact sheet.
  2. NSF-GRFP (NSF – Graduate Research Fellowship Program). These awards fund graduate school, including MS and PhD degrees. These awards are highly prestigious and are awarded to the student and can “follow” the student depending upon where they go to graduate school. To be competitive, students are highly recommended to work with a faculty member in developing their application. Deadlines for applications is typically in November. More details are available at: the NSF web site. The announcement for the competition is available at NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program site
