Florida Tech has been recognized as a top tier National University by U.S. News & World Report for the fourth straight year. In the just-released 2014 edition, the university was named a Tier 1 Best National University. U.S. News assesses more than 1,500 of the country’s four-year colleges and universities in its annual study. Florida Tech was again listed as the second-highest ranked private National University in Florida, behind only the University of Miami. Lesser rankings in the report include Tier 2 and unranked schools.
Florida Tech is classified by the Carnegie Foundation as a Doctoral Research Intensive university, which distinguishes it from institutions that only offer degrees at the bachelor’s or master’s level.
Also significant in the rankings, Florida Tech was recognized as the #2 National University in the country for fostering international student experiences, behind only New School in New York. U.S. News states: “In a global culture, befriending and learning to collaborate with students from other countries can be rewarding personally and professionally.”
