What is Gator Engineering Experience Day?

Gator Engineering Experience Day (GEE Day), hosted by the Engineering Ambassadors, is an event that aims to welcome admitted prospective engineering students to the University of Florida, where they will have the opportunity to spend a day in the life of a Gator Engineering student. During this event, guests will participate in panels led by student leaders and administration, tours led by the Engineering Ambassadors in collaboration with campus ambassadors, and an engineering showcase where student organizations from a variety of engineering disciplines will showcase their organizational activities and University of Florida resource departments will communicate information on their respective services. Additionally, the day will begin and conclude with motivating speeches delivered by our highly esteemed faculty and staff members and our accomplished Gator Engineering students.

Please join us for the sixth annual Gator Engineering Experience Day where we strive to offer our prospective students a focused view of all the opportunities and resources offered by the UF Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering. Experience a day in the life at the University of Florida and what it means to be a Gator – better yet, a Gator Engineer.
