President’s Welcome


This institution was founded at the dawn of the space race as a scientific and technological university designed to educate the early engineers and technicians of the U.S. space program. Florida Tech relies on its unique history to inform who and what we are today—a comprehensive national research university that has provided interdisciplinary educational experiences to more than 70,000 prominent alumni, including five space shuttle astronauts, the first female four-star general in U.S. military history and a National Teacher of the Year.

A Florida Tech education prepares students for exciting and challenging careers where they make important contributions to improve our world. We are proud of that legacy and proud of our students and alumni. Our commitment is to continue developing as a premier institution for improving the human condition through innovative research and excellent education for those who are relentless in their pursuit of understanding and solving the critical challenges of tomorrow.

I think that’s higher education’s highest calling. Thank you for joining us on this shared journey and trusting us to support you as you chart your own path.

From here, anywhere.

John Nicklow, Ph.D.
President
