If you’re looking for a competitive edge in your high-tech career, Florida Polytechnic University is where you start.
Florida Poly is dedicated exclusively to preparing students for a future in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). That means even your core classes—literature, humanities, philosophy—incorporate some aspect of STEM.
We use real-world examples to teach core concepts, then provide access to the latest technology so students can apply and test their knowledge. Students continue practical learning through internships and business connections built through Florida Poly’s more than 90 industry partnerships.
Reinforcing that strategy are small class sizes and professors who care about your academic progress and long-term future. We’ve assembled some of the top minds in their respective fields to share their knowledge and workforce experience. This is a school where you gain practical knowledge and a valuable insight on what to expect after college.
Whether you want to be the next startup CEO, the next world-changing problem solver, or the next to stretch the limits of high tech, this is where you come to make it happen.
