ABOVE VIDEO: Founded at the dawn of the Space Race in 1958, Florida Tech is the only independent, technological university in the Southeast. The university has been named a Barron’s Guide “Best Buy” in College Education, designated a Tier One Best National University in U.S. News & World Report, and is one of just nine schools in Florida lauded by the 2012 Fiske Guide to Colleges and recognized by Bloomberg Businessweek as the best college for return on investment in Florida.

MELBOURNE, FLORIDA — Florida Institute of Technology is again one of the best colleges in the Southeast according to the nationally known education services company, The Princeton Review.

Florida Institute of Technology is an independent technological university that provides quality education, furthers knowledge through basic and applied research, and serves the diverse needs of our local, state, national and international constituencies.

Florida Tech is one of 138 institutions The Princeton Review recommends in its “Best in the Southeast” section of its Web site feature, “2014 Best Colleges: Region by Region,” that posted recently on PrincetonReview.com.

The Princeton Review also takes into account what students at the schools reported about their campus experiences through a student survey. Only schools that permit The Princeton Review to independently survey their students are eligible to be considered for the regional ‘best’ lists.

The survey asks students to rate their own schools on several issues. These range from the accessibility of their professors to the quality of campus food.

Founded in 1958 as Brevard Engineering College, Florida Tech has been known by its present name since 1966.

The 138 colleges The Princeton Review chose for its “Best in the Southeast” designations are located in 12 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. Collectively, the 644 colleges named “regional best(s)” throughout the country constitute about 25 percent of the nation’s four-year colleges.
