ICC

Welcome to Florida Tech's Internationalizing the Campus Committee website!

Did you know?

  • International students now consti­tute 28 percent of the 3,587 students currently enrolled on the Melbourne campus. Of these students, 233 are female and 767 are male.
  • The Florida Tech majors with the largest representation from the total international student enrollment are electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science, aerospace engineering and computer engineering.
  • There are 562 undergraduate international students currently enrolled. Of the total, 160 are freshmen, 100 are sophomores, 116 are juniors and 186 are seniors.
  • International students who were enrolled in 2010 came from 106 countries, the most in the last 10 years.

Why Internationalize?

  • Greatest challenges of today are global, e.g. sustainability, war and terrorism, the economy, cyber crime and no one country can solve them
  • As businesses go global, they need a workforce who thinks globally and is prepared to work across cultures and countries
  • Students need to be equipped to function in the global context
  • U.S. institutions need to continue to draw globally mobile students to remain competitive, especially as global comparisons and ranking exert more influence.

The findings of the Internationalizing the Campus Committee are three-fold:

  • Academic
  • Communication
  • Development

Directions and plans are being formed to enhance all three areas to have a more internationalized campus at Florida Tech.


The foundations of the ICC are based on components from "Internationalizing the Campus" by the American Council on Education (http://www.acenet.edu/Content/NavigationMenu/ProgramsServices/cii/tool/index.htm)
