Independent Technological University

Founded at the dawn of the Space Race in 1958, Florida Tech is the only independent, technological university in the Southeast. PayScale.com ranks graduates’ mid-career median salaries in first place among Florida’s universities, and lists Florida Tech among the top 20 universities in the South-both public and private. The university has been named a Barron’s Guide “Best Buy” in College Education, designated a Tier 1 Best National University in U.S. News & World Report, and is one of just nine schools in Florida lauded by the Fiske Guide to Colleges. In 2016, Times Higher Education ranked Florida Tech one of the top 20 small universities in the world and named it one of the top universities in the United States. Florida Tech offers undergraduate, master’s and doctoral programs. Florida Institute of Technology’s mission is to provide high-quality education to a culturally diverse student body in order to prepare students for entering the global workforce, seeking higher-education opportunities, and serving within their communities. The university also seeks to expand knowledge through basic and applied research and to serve the diverse economic, cultural, and societal needs of our local, state, national and international constituencies. Florida Institute of Technology is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award associate, baccalaureate, master’s, education specialist and doctoral degrees. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of Florida Institute of Technology.

The Quadrennial Technology Review

ACCESS ALL OF THE QUADRENNIAL TECHNOLOGY REVIEW 2015 CONTENT. The last four years have been defined by dramatic change in the nation’s energy landscape. Domestic production of oil and natural gas has boomed, causing the United States to become the world leader in combined oil and natural gas production for the last three consecutive years. Looking forward, the United States faces significant energy-linked economic, environmental, and security challenges. The rapidly evolving nature of energy technology and scientific capability to address these challenges demands rigorous analysis to inform DOE’s strategic decisions-a need that the Quadrennial Technology Review will address. The 2015 Quadrennial Technology Review examines the most promising research, development, demonstration, and deployment opportunities across energy technologies to effectively address the nation’s energy needs. Specifically, this analysis identifies the important technology RDD&D opportunities across energy supply and end use in working toward a clean energy economy in the United States. The insight gained from this analysis provides essential information for decision makers as they develop funding decisions, approaches to public-private partnerships, and other strategic actions over the next five years. BACKGROUND. QTR 2015 builds upon the first QTR in 2011, focusing on DOE energy technology RDD&D activities and complements the work of the Quadrennial Energy Review, which focuses on energy infrastructure and government-wide energy policy. The 2011 QTR was developed in response to the Report to the President on Accelerating the Pace of Change in Energy Technologies through an Integrated Federal Energy Policy by the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology. The first QTR defined a framework for understanding and discussing energy system challenges, established a set of priorities for the Department, and explained to stakeholders the roles of DOE and the national laboratories, the broader government, the private sector, academia, and innovation in energy transformation. QTR 2015 describes the nation’s energy landscape and the dramatic changes that have taken place over the last four years. Specifically, it begins by building on the first QTR and identifying what has changed in the technologies reviewed within it since 2011. It then identifies the RDD&D activities, opportunities, and pathways forward to help address our national energy challenges. QTR 2015 approaches the analysis from a strong systems perspective to explore the integration of science and energy technology RDD&D with cross cutting technology RDD&D, and conducts an integrated analysis of RDD&D opportunities.

What is Information Technology?

Information technology is the use of any computers, storage, networking and other physical devices, infrastructure and processes to create, process, store, secure and exchange all forms of electronic data. The term information technology was coined by the Harvard Business Review, in order to make a distinction between purpose-built machines designed to perform a limited scope of functions and general-purpose computing machines that could be programmed for various tasks. Storage is any kind of technology that holds information as data. Information can take any form including file data, multimedia, telephony data and Web data, data from sensors or future formats. The information technology profession is extremely diverse: IT workers can specialize in fields like software development, application management, hardware – desktop support, server or storage administrator – and network architecture.
