Florida Tech’s many centers and institutes offer graduate students a wealth of research opportunities spanning several disciplines, including human spaceflight, Mars, the Indian River Lagoon, autism, cybersecurity, climate change, corrosion and biofouling, cross-cultural management and many more.

“The most important lesson I learned at Florida Tech, outside of academics, would be that you can turn your passion into your career. I have been fascinated by animals as long I can remember—I am living my childhood dream!” — Cassie Vergason ’16 BS Psychology, ’18 MS Applied Behavior Analysis and Organizational Behavior Management 

“Being at Florida Tech, I was able to get involved with a lot of programs very easily that taught me real-world experience, real-world project management, and allowed me to do things on campus before going out into the professional world.” — Zach Eichholz ’16 BS Sustainability studies, ’19 MS Interdisciplinary Sciences 

“Something I experienced as a Florida Tech student was a continuous push by my professors to think beyond plugging and chugging numbers into various equations. They taught me to think critically about the effects my work would have on people.” — Shayna Begay ’10 BS Aerospace Engineering, ’11 MS Aerospace Engineering  

“Early in my career, I would run into people who had gone to Duke, MIT and other well-known engineering schools, and they would ask, “…Where did you get exposure to program management?” I attribute Florida Tech and its faculty.” — Larry Hall ’79 BS Management Science, ’80 MBA,  ’83 MS Computer Science
