Located in the Heart of Florida’s High-Tech Corridor
Florida Tech is the perfect place for a civil engineering degree. The 130-acre campus is located on the Space Coast (so named because of the presence of NASA and the Kennedy Space Center on Cape Canaveral just north of us), minutes away from the Indian River Lagoon, the most diverse estuary in North America.
The area has one of the largest high-tech workforces in the country, with more than 5,000 high-tech corporations and government and military organizations located nearby. This workforce also provides an abundance of internship and employment opportunities. Many graduates of the civil engineering master’s program choose to work for a state or local government where they design and oversee the construction of roads, buildings, and bridges. Related work can also be found outside of government in the private sector at consulting or construction firms.
Enhance Your Civil Engineering Degree with Campus Organizations
Florida Tech’s chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is one of the most active organizations on campus. ASCE members take part in national competitions to test their engineering skills. The Chi Epsilon honor society gives civil engineering students an abundance of networking opportunities.
