Florida Institute of Technology: Passion for Applied Education

Located in Melbourne, Florida, the center of an internationally renowned aerospace hub known as the “Space Coast,” Florida Institute of Technology (Florida Tech) offers exceptionally strong STEM—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—programs, all of which include practical hands-on experience in the field and laboratories starting day one.

Florida Tech was founded along side NASA in 1958 and has since grown to become one of the leading national research universities in the country. With its roots in innovative rocket science, the Florida Tech experience has never been a typical classroom setting, but one that finds its students “working in the field and in research labs, creating, designing and building, during their entire undergraduate program,” said International Admission Counselor Marivi Walker. “True STEM education is about project-based learning and applied education and that’s part of who we are.

Many students come to Florida Tech through ESL partnerships that grant admission without the TOEFL requirement.

Integrative Learning and Internships

All of Florida Tech’s programs are designed to prepare students for the future, giving them the confidence and competence to succeed. The new Harris Design Center provides space for students to showcase interactive Capstone projects in front of companies such as GE and Rockwell Collins.

Florida Tech’s combined Civil Engineering and Construction Management program is a strong example of engineering balanced with business and it is particularly attractive to Florida Tech’s Latin American students.

Florida Tech connects students with internships at companies such as NASA, GE, Northrop Grumman, SpaceX, Harris Corporation, Blue Origin, Embraer, and many other global enterprises located in Melbourne. With strong ties between these companies and the university, “many students find themselves with job offers before graduation,” noted Ms. Walker.

Renowned Professors

Enticed by the university’s small class sizes, hardworking students, and research focus, professors from around the world choose to teach at Florida Tech. As renowned experts in their respective fields, they monitor nuclear explosions, study space weather, unlock the mysteries of autism, refine global climate prediction, and protect vital natural resources. Internationally recognized, these educators, scholars, and researchers serve the diverse needs of local, state, national, and international communities.

A Place for Those with Passion

Florida Tech’s strengths extend beyond its engineering roots to include aviation, behavior analysis, biological sciences, business, communication, computer science, education, mathematics, meteorology, physics and space sciences, and psychology. The university’s strong academic programs attract highly qualified students from more than 100 countries worldwide. This creates an exciting living/learning environment characterized by international diversity, entrepreneurism, innovation, research, and scholarship.
