Last week the Florida Institute of Technology announced that it received a donation from Massachusetts-based software company PTC. What or who was behind this decision? Why did PTC choose FIT above other schools? Some of the influence may have come from several mutual connections and overlapping relationships between PTC board members and high-ranking constituents at FIT. The image from Prospect Visual displays some of these relationships.
Details of the Donation PackagePTC, who provide products aimed at the manufacturing and engineering sectors, made the donation in order to improve FIT’s courses in manufacturing technology. The package also includes access to its proprietary software and online training on the use of PTC products for a select group of Florida Tech students.
