Our students are fueled from within. They have big, bold ideas and come to Florida Polytechnic University looking for ways to make their visions a reality.
When you choose to become a Phoenix, you’ll be welcomed by students and faculty who share your passion for pushing the boundaries of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Small classes and professors who work side-by-side with students on real-world projects in some of the most advanced technology labs available make for a unique and rewarding experience.
Florida Poly opened in fall 2014 and is the only state university dedicated exclusively to preparing students for careers in STEM. That means even your core classes—humanities, literature, and philosophy—incorporate some aspect of science and technology. At Florida Poly, you don’t have to wait until you’re an upperclassman to secure valuable time in the lab. Freshmen can expect hands-on, real-world projects during their first semester.
Florida Poly is strategically located in Lakeland, the heart of the Sunshine State’s High Tech Corridor along I-4. Our campus is a short drive from the theme parks of Orlando and the beaches of Tampa and positioned so you can take in everything Florida has to offer.
A unique experience
Our students have access to the latest technology in our labs, including a supercomputer, 3D printers and scanners, isolated servers for cybersecurity training, and robotics development. We also have the world’s first all-digital library. Joining a young university means you’ll have a strong voice in creating the traditions and culture that will last for generations.
If you’re driven to achieve the impossible and overcome challenges, you’re fueled from within. Your success is our priority. The possibilities are endless at Florida Poly.
