About

A master’s in Conservation Technology from Florida Institute of Technology prepares students to start a career immersed in biological or ecological conservation practices, or to continue with further graduate study in a PhD program.

Overview

This interdisciplinary field examines genetics, geographic information systems and ecological modeling so students develop the expertise they need to create solutions for today’s most challenging conservation issues—such as climate change analysis, water quality and diseases among oceanic plants and animals. Conservation scientists and ecologists also manage, improve, and protect the country’s natural resources.

Graduates of the Conservation Technology program from Florida Institute of Technology possess quantitative and computer skills that are in demand from a wide variety of industries including environmental consulting and insurance companies, non-governmental organizations and local, state and federal agencies.

Why Pursue A Master's In Conservation Technology At Florida Tech?

The university has over 50 years of excellence in science and engineering education. The conservation technology master’s degree program prepares students for a career using the latest body of knowledge in the industry, while providing excellent research facilities for conducting state-of-the-art research.

Florida Tech’s conservation technology master’s degree program is not just something you study—it’s something students go out into the field and do. Central Florida’s proximity to the Indian River Lagoon, Atlantic Ocean, and Florida wetlands provide a wealth of natural laboratories that other universities simply can’t offer.
