Conservation Technology (MS)
A master's in conservation technology from Florida Tech prepares students for a career immersed in biological or ecological conservation practices, or to continue with further graduate study in a Ph. D. program. 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 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.
