Explore & Discover Florida Tech

The Office of Undergraduate Admission holds many on-campus events throughout the year. These events take one of two forms: Exploration Days and Discovery Days.

Discovery Days

Discovery Days are Florida Tech's largest "open house" style admission events. These structured, full-day events are your chance to dive in, learn about, and get a true feel for Florida Tech's campus and community. Discovery Days are offered on two Saturdays annually, one in the Fall (November) and one in the Spring (April).

Discovery Day Features

Each Discovery Day includes:

  • Admissions and financial aid presentations
  • Student-led campus tours
  • Meetings with faculty who teach in your area of study
  • Tours of laboratories and facilities associated with your department
  • The chance to talk to current students
  • Lunch in our award-winning Panther Dining Hall

When you register for a Discovery Day, you will recieve information regarding parking, directions and other pertinent information via email. Upon check-in on the day of the event, you will receive a personalized itinerary, campus map, and important information about your visit.

Typical Discovery Day Schedule

The following is a typical, general Discovery Day schedule. Your schedule will depend in part on your major of interest.

Exploration Days

Exporation Days are generally held one Friday (or so) per month between January and August annually. Exploration Days are very similar to Discovery Days in terms of content but they tend to be smaller.

Florida Tech Exploration Day is a Friday, on-campus visit event focusing on students interested in attending Florida Tech for any of our world-class programs of study. Students and their families will have a chance to experience all that Florida Tech has to offer, including talking with admission staff members, meeting current students and speaking with faculty while on campus. Exploration Day is a great way to "explore" the Florida Tech campus and experience the Florida Tech way of life, for a day.

Exploration Day will allow you to hear about and better understand the admission and financial aid processes, take a campus tour, meet with faculty members in your area of study, tour labs and facilities associated with your department, and experience our beautiful sub-tropical campus.

Registration is mandatory. Information regarding parking, directions and other pertinent information will be provided in a return email. Upon check-in, we will provide your specific itinerary, campus map, and important information about your visit. You'll also have a chance to receive information about the university, program of interest, admissions and financial aid.
