Florida Tech's programs at Hampton Roads originally operated under a military waiver from the Commonwealth of Virginia, with courses limited to the military and Department of Defense civilian employees.
In 1991, Florida Tech's graduate program received state approval to extend its service to dependents and members of the general public. Today, the student body is a richly diverse group from each of the military installations in the area, the NASA program at Langley Research Center, Newport News Shipbuilding and a variety of technological corporations and general businesses on both sides of Hampton Roads.
Courses are taught by well-accomplished faculty members recruited from business and industry, with most having terminal (Ph.D., D.B.A. or J.D.) degrees within their subject areas. Students study real-life applications of business subjects under the expert instruction and dedication of faculty who are leaders in the local business and education community, as part of the university's tradition of excellence.
Florida Tech at Hampton Roads is located in the Fort Eustis Education Building 1500 at the corner of Lee and Madison Streets. Fort Eustis is situated in the historical triangle between Yorktown, Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown.
