Florida Polytechnic University
Florida Polytechnic University, started as a university of engineering and technology, is designed to be different so that graduates possess the talent and job-ready skills to stand out from the crowd. While other top engineering universities have centers of innovation, Florida Poly was established on April 20, 2012, as a wholly innovative university dedicated to the principle that innovation occurs when research and creativity are applied to real-world challenges. Florida’s only public university for engineering and technology dedicated to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) was created to be both a rigorous academic institution and a powerful resource for high-tech industries.
The mission of Florida Polytechnic University is to prepare 21st century learners in advanced fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to become innovative problem-solvers and high-tech professionals through interdisciplinary teaching, leading-edge research, and collaborative local, regional and global partnerships.
Florida Polytechnic University aspires to be one of the top engineering universities, a nationally and internationally recognized institution of higher learning serving the State by preparing students to lead Florida’s high-tech industries. The student learning experience will focus on practical and applied research, internships with industry partners, and hands-on leadership opportunities delivered by distinguished faculty who excel in their fields.
