Florida Tech is once again among the top universities in the United States, according to the U.S. News & World Report 2017 Best Colleges rankings released Sept. 13.
Named to the Tier 1 Best National University list as one of the top 220 four-year colleges and universities in the country – a group drawn from the magazine’s in-depth assessment of more than 1,600 institutions – Florida Tech reaffirmed its status as a premier university both nationally and closer to home.
Florida Tech was one of just six Florida universities in Tier 1 and the second-highest ranked private National University in the Sunshine State, behind only University of Miami.
For the second consecutive year, the Melbourne-based university earned the top spot in the magazine’s “Schools with the Most International Students” list. International students who were enrolled in 2015 came from 123 countries, the most in the last 10 years.
