Florida Tech is among the top 20 percent of colleges and universities in the United States, according to a new ranking released in late September from The Wall Street Journal and Times Higher Education that examined learning environment, alumni earning power and more than 100,000 survey responses from students to develop the comprehensive list.
Beyond its strong overall position among the more than 1,000 colleges and universities included in the ranking, Florida Tech excelled in key individual categories.
The Melbourne-based university’s 9:1 student-to-faculty ratio was tied for fifth best in the country and earned the top spot among the 25 Florida-based schools in the ranking.
Additionally, Florida Tech was the No. 2 university in Florida for graduate salary, No. 2 for school resources, and the No. 3 private university overall in the Sunshine State.
