with expert faculty, and the excitement of a diverse and dynamic campus life.

hurricane research.

Since 2008, when the university celebrated its 50th anniversary, Florida Tech has

engaged in extensive new construction on the Melbourne, Fla. campus. Recent

additions include a new student services building, state-of-the-art dining

facility, aquatic center and residence village, as well as two new centers of

excellence, the Scott Center for Autism Treatment and Harris Center for Science

and Engineering, both designed to enhance student learning-and have a positive

impact on society as a whole-through basic and applied research.

Florida Tech's proximity to the Atlantic coastline of Central Florida in Brevard

County, better known as the "Space Coast," places the university in the state's

High Tech Corridor, which is home to Kennedy Space Center, United Space Alliance,

Harris Corporation, and many other significant government agencies and technology

companies. The area has the most concentrated high-tech economy in the state and

one of the largest high-tech workforces in the nation, which results in ample

opportunity for students to network with top employers and find internships, co-op

positions and careers.

Report. Florida Tech has also been ranked by Times Higher Education as one of the
