What Students Are Saying

4.08 Average Rating
fit is a fantastic school for engineering and psychology! the professors are experts in their fields and they will personally help the students in any way possible. i have never met a person on campus who was mean or negative towards me, and a beach five minutes away is a nice catch too ;)!
Amy from Cincinnati, OH
Florida Tech is a great campus for those who are interested int he sciences and want a small well rounded school. Don't let the idea of it being a tech school fool you, we have sports and a Greek life system that brings you excitement when your not in the lab! 5 stars and 2 thumbs up! Join the panther family.
