Interdisciplinary Science Master's with Thesis/Non-Thesis Option

Train for Careers in Nanotechnology, Medicine and Engineering

Florida Tech's interdisciplinary science major is a broad individualized educational program with a thesis and non-thesis option. One of the very first programs of its kind in the country, Florida Tech's interdisciplinary science master's degree combines advanced scientific study with advanced knowledge of communications and business, giving students considerable flexibility in their career. With a close-knit academic community with peers and professors, interdisciplinary science students collaborate to explore their interests and develop a personal career path.

A Program Offering Career Options

With the creation of the interdisciplinary science program, Florida Tech recognized the need for students to develop expertise in a variety of science and engineering disciplines, while also expanding communication and business acumen. This interdisciplinary approach gives students a variety of career options that can include jobs in nanotechnology, environmental protection, medicine, engineering, teaching and research (both private and the government). Many students with an interdisciplinary science master's degree achieve leadership roles in the military or choose to enter a doctoral program.

Research Opportunities

Because research is a part of every degree earned at Florida Tech, students in the interdisciplinary science master's degree program conduct advanced research projects with professors and fellow students on relevant topics to the field that are of most interest to them. Past research topics have included sustainable coastal management, aviation safety, computers in education, neurochemistry and industrial symbiosis. Because students work with professors in various departments on campus, research opportunities span the entire spectrum of science, engineering, business, psychology, aeronautics and humanities.

High-Tech Laboratory Facilities

State-of-the-art facilities and laboratories are another reason students earning an interdisciplinary science master's degree choose Florida Tech. The F.W. Olin Engineering Complex houses 26 specialized research laboratories, and The F.W. Olin Life Sciences Building is home to an aquaculture facility, climate change institute, eight teaching laboratories and 12 research laboratories -- all equipped with 21st century technology. The Harris Center for Science and Engineering serves the research needs of our aquaculture and fish biology programs. Florida Tech research centers, institutes and laboratories also include:

  • Laser, Optics and Instrumentation Laboratory
  • Biomaterials Laboratory
  • High Resolution Microscopy and Advanced Imaging Center
  • Wind and Hurricane Impacts Research Laboratory
  • Vero Beach Marine Laboratory
  • Center for Entrepreneurship and New Business Development
  • Virtual Climate Library

Strategic Location

Another of the benefits to attending Florida Tech for an interdisciplinary science master's degree is its location within the Florida High Tech Corridor – home to more than 5,000 high-tech companies and the fifth largest high-tech workforce in the nation.
