Notable Alumni

The Making of an Anniversary Book

For over six decades, Florida Tech has been renowned for the quality of the education and research that takes place not only our Melbourne campus but throughout the fourteen extended study locations and via our community of online learners.

Within the achievements of our alumni, we see the breadth and depth of the engineers, scientists, astronauts, technology leaders, captains of industry, clinical researchers, athletes, and educators that stand out in nearly every field.

Celebrated artist, Derek Gores, created the stunning collage for the cover artwork from torn pages of Florida Tech magazines, brochures, photos, posters, yearbooks, and advertisements. The collage is an eight-foot by eight-foot replica of the Florida Institute of Technology university seal. Each of the alumni featured in the book appears within the artwork, along with a treasure trove of history to complete the insignia.

Currently, on display in the Evans Library on campus, the artwork’s future home is in the new Alumni Center. We encourage all alumni to stop by and take a selfie in front of this iconic artwork while on campus!

Most books have a beginning, middle, and end, but the chapters at Florida Tech will continue to unfold. We invite you to order a copy, view it online, and visit the Alumni Center for a photo to add to your experience here at our university. Without the vision of our founding president, Dr. Jerome P. Keuper, and all alumni who have passed through our doors, we would not be the great university we are today. Our heartfelt thanks to President McCay for encouraging the storytelling of Florida Tech with this anniversary publication!
