As the largest and most research-intensive arm of Florida Tech, the College of Engineering and Science (COES) is what makes us Florida's STEM UniversityTM. The COES includes six departments:
The college is also home to the Harris Institute for Assured Information and the Human-Centered Design Institute.
Programs offered include aerospace engineering, applied mathematics, astrobiology, astronomy and astrophysics, biochemistry, biological oceanography, biological sciences, biomathematics, biomedical engineering, biomedical science, chemical engineering, chemical oceanography, chemistry, civil engineering, coastal zone management, computer engineering, computer information systems, computer science, conservation technology, earth remote sensing, education and interdisciplinary studies, electrical engineering, engineering management, environmental resource management, environmental science, flight test engineering, genomics and molecular genetics, geological oceanography, information assurance and cybersecurity, mathematical sciences, mechanical engineering, meteorology, ocean engineering, operations research, physical oceanography, planetary science, sustainability studies, software engineering, space sciences, systems engineering and teaching. Advanced degrees include the Specialist in Education.
The findings can be employed by coastal communities as part of coastal resiliency planning, so the reach of the study extends well beyond the research area.
There will be shifts in where coral reefs grow best, but rising global temperatures means cooler areas will be no more than a temporary refuge for corals.
Faculty members Kunal Mitra and Chris Bashur will use the funds to further study Alzheimer's disease screening and therapy for dementia, respectively.
