Sustainability Research

Research data are central to adaptively managing systems for long term sustainability. To learn more about sustainability research at Florida Tech visit the Florida Tech Research Portal, you can search sustainability and related fields across many disciplines. Research often aids the identification and implementation of best practices - routines that improve intermediate-term efficiency and long-term production.

Measuring and analyzing sustainability metrics requires research capabilities in many potential fields (examples include data-processing for Geographic Information Systems, carbon accounting, endangered species and extinction risk, agricultural analyses, energy efficiency, etc.).  

Companies, non-profits, academia, and government employers seek sustainability professionals to research and refine system management to improve long-term resilience.  Examples of such positions are in Table 1 within Sustainability FAQs.
