Graduates develop expertise for this scientific problem-solving with a master’s in Physics from Florida Institute of Technology.


Physicists are found in many aspects of society from space exploration, high-tech companies (telecommunications or semiconductors, for example), and research firms, to medicine, product development, manufacturing, oil and gas, and more. A master’s in Physics from Florida Institute of Technology can also give students a chance to find an area of interest for specialization such as space physics, astronomy, astrophysics, geophysics, or engineering.

Why Pursue A Master's In Physics At Florida Tech?

Choosing Florida Tech for a physics master’s degree gives students the expert faculty, tools, and resources they might expect to find at a larger university but at a smaller school with a more intimate learning environment. Students in the physics program are part of a university recognized as having the very first space sciences program in the world, and one that awards the largest number of physics bachelor’s degrees each year (according to the American Institute of Physics).

Florida Tech is strategically situated at the center of Florida’s high-tech corridor, home to more than 5,000 technological companies, including NASA. There is no better place to study for a physics master’s degree than in one of the most diverse science and technology-oriented areas in the country.

Core competencies include analytics mechanics, electromagnetic theory, quantum mechanics, and thermodynamics. Students apply their curriculum through world-class experiments such as the Compact Muon Solenoid at CERN by using our advanced Ortega .8-m telescope.
