Student Activities and Organizations


Dream Team Engineering (DTE)

Dream Team Engineering is a group of engineering and non-engineering students alike that are dedicated to making novel technologies to enhance the lives of the patients at UF Health Shands, the surrounding Gainesville community, and beyond. Our teams are split across three divisions: Design, Software, and Research, and work alongside physicians, nurses, and child-life specialists to create engineering devices that positively impact the overall healthcare experience.

Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Student Council (NNSC)

Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Student Council (NNSC) is a student-run organization developed to enhance knowledge in the areas of nanotechnology and nanoscience. We encourage the participation of students from all disciplines and backgrounds. Every year we hold Nanoday to celebrate nanoscale engineering, science, and technology, to recognize researchers advancing the field, to applaud innovators translating outcomes into valuable products and services, and to increase understanding of its potential to positively impact lives. We are excited to host the NanoFlorida Conference 2021 on our gator home!
