Florida Technical College
Florida Technical College was founded in 1962 to provide post-secondary training in specialized business fields. The main campus in Orland opened in 1962, followed by the Lakeland campus in 1990, and the DeLand campus in 1997. Classes began at the Kissimmee, Pembroke Pines, and Tampa campuses in 2011, and the Cutler Bay campus opened in 2015. After 35 years of serving Florida’s educational needs, Florida-Technical College has merged with National University College (NUC), which until now had been a sister Institution. In addition, NUC brought two other colleges under its umbrella, The Digital Animation & Visual Effects (DAVE) School in Florida and IBC Institute in Puerto Rico, for a combined total of 28 campuses and 29,000 students in both Puerto Rico and Florida.
