Southeast Volusia has a great deal to offer technology-oriented manufacturers and other enterprises engaged in aviation, aerospace, power and other emerging industries. Its proximity to Florida’s Space Coast is just the beginning. The region also anchors Central Florida’s High Tech Corridor, which economists have branded a hotbed of advances in tech-driven products, systems and research. And speaking of research, the world’s leading aviation and aerospace university, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, is located in nearby Daytona Beach, as is Daytona State College’s Advanced Technology Center. Volusia County high schools feature many embedded “academies” for concentrated studies in Technology, Engineering, Information Technology, Robotics, Design and Manufacturing and Computer Science. North West Lineman College is an industry-leading educational institute providing advanced field training and consultation nationally and globally. Add to this the fact that Daytona Beach International Airport, a teaching airport, is a site for the Federal Aviation Administration’s NextGen air traffic control test bed. Also located nearby in Melbourne is Florida Institute of Technology, a comprehensive, research-intensive institution known as Florida’s STEM University™. These resources not only support aviation and aerospace, but also are equally important to any company engaged in the engineering and manufacture of high-tech products or systems.
