We Are Florida Tech
What we are is a private, coeducational, residential, research-intensive, doctoral granting university located in the beautiful City of Melbourne on Florida’s sunny “Space Coast.” But who we are is so much more. We are a community of researchers, scholars and learners hailing from all around the world. We are engineers, aviators, innovators, leaders, educators, athletes and astronauts. We have the brains of rocket scientists and the hearts of Panthers. We are Florida Tech. Join us as we celebrate 60 years of ambition and achievement!
