We Are Florida Tech!!
Founded at the dawn of the Space Race 50 years ago, Florida Tech is the only independent, technological university in the Southeast. With nearly 15,000 students enrolled on main campus, extended campuses and online, Florida Tech has been listed as a Tier 1 Best National University by U.S. News & World Report, and ranked as one of the nation’s top technological institutes by the Fiske Guide to Colleges. The university offers undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs. Fields of study include science, engineering, aeronautics, business, humanities, mathematics, psychology, communication and education.
Florida Tech is a proud member of the NCAA, the Sunshine State Conference, Gulf South Conference (football) and Peach Belt Conference (men's and women's cross country), competing in 22 intercollegiate sports. The Panthers also field a competitive cheerleading team.
In the Panthers’ short but storied history, they have captured multiple national, regional and conference championships. Along with being champions in the athletic arena, Florida Tech student-athletes excel in the classroom.
While forging our leaders of tomorrow, Florida Tech is striving to provide its student-scholars with state-of-the-art athletic facilities. The spacious Charles and Ruth Clemente Center is home to the Florida Tech Athletic Department, men’s and women’s basketball and women’s volleyball. The Clemente Center also houses a vast array of weight and aerobic training equipment, used by Panther student-athletes to make the best, better. Florida Tech also boasts some of the top athletic fields in Central Florida, including the F.W. Olin Sports Complex, featuring Rick Stottler Field (soccer), Andy Seminick-Les Hall Field (baseball) and Nancy Bottge Field (softball). Future plans to enhance the F.W. Olin Sports Complex include adding field lighting and a locker room facility. A campaign is underway consisting of alumni, friends and corporate partners to help make those plans a reality.
