Sustainability professionals manage and create linked environmental, economic, and social systems using interdisciplinary skills across a wide array of careers. Of 750 global CEOs, 91% report their company will employ new sustainability technologies within 5 years (UNGC, 2010).
As campus members of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education, Florida Tech students, faculty and staff have access to many benefits to advance career tracks in sustainability studies through courses, campus projects, and research.
Sustainable systems can be created and maintained with well-designed best practices - management routines that improve resiliency and long-term production. As an international leader in education and research, Florida Tech is itself an engine of sustainability. Every day, the university serves to inform, propel and sustain:
- Best practices in sustainability studies and associated initiatives through capstone research projects that connect and multiply Academic, Campus, and Research programs,
- The discovery and application of new information and tools through the innovative work of our student body, faculty, staff, and centers of excellence,
