Florida Institute of Technology is a national, doctoral-granting research university with a strong commitment to international education in an enriched technological environment, known worldwide for its excellent academic programs, outstanding faculty and alumni success. International students comprise nearly 30% of Florida Tech’s undergraduate student body and 49% of our graduate student population. They represent more than 100 countries from around the world. Ranked a Tier One Best National University by U.S. News & World Report, it is also the only independent technological university in the Southeastern United States. Times Higher Education recently named Florida Tech in the Top 200 Universities in the World. Florida Tech’s main campus spans 130 acres. Campus is located in Melbourne, just minutes from the Atlantic Ocean, one hour east of Orlando and a three-hour drive north of Miami. The area is home to the most concentrated high-tech economy in the state and the fourth-largest high-tech workforce in the nation. Melbourne’s attractive business climate is matched only by its natural resources including the Atlantic Ocean and Indian River Lagoon, which are ideal for scientific study and research. The climate is generally sunny and temperate; the average daily temperature is 76°F/24°C and severe storms are infrequent.
