On Mission – High-Tech with a Human Touch

 We are ‘On Mission’ to continue our trajectory to impact our worlds. The fact that you are looking at this site is an indication that you are interested in better yourself and your organizations.

 We all know we live in a technology dominated world. At Florida Tech we know Technology. Technology is the human ability to impact the world by forging or manipulating resources, labor and capital to meet current and future needs. Technology itself implies obsolescence for those that do not push the future. Technology is more than hardware; it is also software and “humanware.” Education is part of the process of transferring technology from humans and organizations to humans and organizations. At Florida Tech, you will be more than just users of technology, you will learn how to develop and shape technology and hence your world. You will become leaders in your fields.

 Beyond the high-tech processes, we offer a “human touch” by providing a genuine caring atmosphere and personalized attention to your needs. Our staff and faculty understand the demands of a fast paced world.

 Our university has a solid history of offering quality degree programs to members of the military, government service employees and other working professionals. Students can study at any one of 11 off-campus sites in five states including distance learning programs that are taught through our Virtual Site.

 Quality does matter. Florida Tech is consistently ranked as one of America’s best colleges by U.S. News & World Report, and is listed as a “Best Buy in Education” by Barron's. Examine our excellent history and the success of our many alumni, including those with notable careers in all branches of the military; public and private sectors. From astronauts, to four star generals, to leaders on Wall Street and beyond. We develop exceptional leaders.

 I invite you to join the growing number of Florida Tech students who have chosen a quality university with a respected reputation for excellence in education and technology.

 From the Eglin Site, Off-Site Locations, we want to help extend your reach. Call or visit with us to learn more how a Florida Tech degree can help you stay “On Mission.”
