Founded in 1958, Florida Tech is rich in history with many fascinating links to the development of Brevard County and our nation's space program. Originally founded to offer continuing education opportunities to scientists, engineers and technicians at what is now NASA's Kennedy Space Center, the university's growth has paralleled the area's rapid development.
Known for a progressive business climate, excellent weather and a growing, vital population, our Melbourne location is ideal. Brevard County, on Florida's Space Coast, is home to space shuttle launches and landings, marine science research projects, alternative energy development and more than 70 miles of uncrowded beaches.
The Atlantic Ocean and Indian River Lagoon are just minutes away and provide unlimited research and recreational opportunities. It is about an hour's drive west to Orlando, which has world-famous theme parks, resorts and one-of-a-kind attractions.
