Florida Tech Remains One of the Top Computer Engineering Schools
Proximity to High-Tech Employers and Numerous Internships
As one of the top computer engineering schools in the country, Florida Tech's academic environment fosters innovation and exploration. Florida Tech boasts small classes and low student-to-faculty ratios with most classes taught by Ph.D. level professors whose greatest interest is helping students succeed.
Because of our small classes, Florida Tech professors can offer students personalized attention and are easily accessible for assistance and advice, something not all computer engineering schools can offer. We have a diverse faculty with specialties in a variety of areas who are active in teaching and research, and also occupy important roles in professional organizations. Many of our faculty members have won Florida Tech teaching and research awards, served on national and international committees and worked with institutions around the world.
The Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
The United States Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics also reported that job applicants with a computer engineering degree from an accredited program will have better chances of finding a job, which is another reason to choose Florida Tech among other top computer engineering schools.
Undergraduate Research Opportunities
Another way that Florida Tech remains one of the top computer engineering schools is by offering quality research experiences to undergraduate students. The computer engineering faculty is diverse, with research interests that include wireless communication, image processing, speech recognition and more. In addition, students have access to a 10-week summer research experience funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
The Student Design Showcase gives our seniors an opportunity to display their projects before local industry judges who examine and evaluate each project and give constructive feedback. Often underclassmen are invited to work on the senior project teams, that also gives them valuable project experience.
State-of-the-Art Facilities with Cutting-Edge Technology
Another advantage Florida Tech may have over other top computer engineering schools is its facilities. The F. W. Olin Engineering Complex epitomizes Florida Tech's commitment to academic excellence and cutting-edge technology. This state-of-the art facility provides students with an outstanding learning environment. The complex has three levels linked by the latest electronic and communications technology, a 142-seat multimedia auditorium and 26 specialized research and teaching laboratories, all supporting multiple departments within the College of Engineering.
Great Florida Location Surrounded by High-Tech Companies
One of the many reasons students choose Florida Tech over other top computer engineering schools is our location. In the heart of Florida's Space Coast, Florida Tech's campus is near the nation's fourth largest high-tech workforce and over 5,000 high-tech companies. What's more, we are an hour drive away from the NASA Kennedy Space Center.
Students can also enjoy year-round beautiful weather and close proximity to 72 miles of Atlantic Coast beaches and the Indian River Lagoon. The area boasts many outdoor activities and is a short drive to Orlando attractions such as Disney World and Universal Studios. Whether it's to learn, work or play, our students can do it all at one of the top computer engineering schools.
