What’s next for you? Ready for

a university that puts next in front of now? At Florida Poly, we’re two steps ahead and constantly evolving. After your time here, you won’t just be a graduate. You’ll be today’s answer to tomorrow’s questions.


When you think about the next few years, what do they look like Are you sitting in a big lecture hall, mindlessly copying notes? Are you wondering when you’ll get to classes about “the good stuff”?

~OR~ Are you rolling up your sleeves in a nano lab, ready to get to work?


If you’re ready for something different, here it is. This is your opportunity. This is what’s next. Get a first look at Florida’s newest and most innovative state university, one that stretches the boundaries of traditional education. Imagine taking part in a hands-on college experience that gives you control over your own career destiny. Picture yourself taking classes that arm you with intellectual skill and practical ability, where learning and doing are inseparable. What’s next? Groundbreaking ideas. Breathtaking innovation. Boundless success. YOU.

Sick of precedents? Then set them yourself.

The traditional academic experience leaves a lot of post-recession graduates wondering what college really did for them. That’s why focus, relevance and real-world interaction define our dynamic approach to education.

Our goal is to produce confident graduates who hit their stride as soon as they enter the work force.

BLUR THE LINE BETWEEN COLLEGE & CAREER


We don’t believe in making a distinction between what you have to learn for college and what you have to learn for your job. And we don’t think learning should be restricted to the classroom or campus, either. Florida Poly students will have unrivaled access to industry professionals through internships, co-ops and applied research opportunities. Not only will students see their education in action, they’ll graduate with a strong network of employers who already recognize the value of their degrees.

“Florida Polytechnic is addressing a critical need by developing graduates who have an impressive depth of knowledge as well as the skills to apply it in the real world. Those are the future employees we’re looking for at Cisco — creative innovators who know how to assess, develop a strategy and then execute against it.” – Patrick S. Finn Cisco Systems Senior Vice President, United States, Public Sector


Engineered to be Extraordinary. State-of-the-art isn’t just a buzzword to us – it’s a philosophy reflected by all aspects of our university, including our campus. Our Innovation, Science and Technology Building was designed by world-renowned architect and polytechnic graduate, Santiago Calatrava.

Designed with experiential learning in mind, the building has 37 labs, 11 of which are dedicated to research in robotics, information technology and the sciences. Classrooms are equipped with the latest in interactive technologies, and our Student Information Systems enable you to stay in constant contact with advisors, counselors and mentors on and off campus.

“My first aim is to make an inspirational environment for the students, the professors and everyone working here. I want them to feel that the day, the building and the world are full of opportunities.” – Santiago Calatrava

Meet your professors at

LEARN FROM EXPERIENCE Expect to get your hands (or your nitrile gloves) dirty. Experiential learning is the hallmark of Florida Poly, because true mastery happens by putting ideas into practice. Twenty-six of our 32 classrooms are teaching labs. Why shouldn’t you learn on the same technology that you’ll be using on the job? We believe that a truly comprehensive education goes beyond theory. That’s why our faculty is composed of scholar-practitioners who bring real-world experience to the table. Students will benefit from the industry expertise of professors like Dr. Rob MacCuspie, a research chemist from the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Specializing in nanotechnology and materials chemistry, he has more than seven years of experience working in government labs, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Air Force Research Lab.


Small class sizes mean your professors will be your mentors, not just your instructors.

Cutting-edge curriculum The connection between education and industry extends to Florida Poly’s curriculum as well. Our professors worked hand-in-hand with Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) business leaders to develop a curriculum that’s rigorous and relevant, tailored specifically to the industry’s evolving needs. Entrepreneurship, finance and leadership classes are also part of our core curriculum, giving you the know-how to make your STEM degree really work for you.

“In ten years, I hope to see Florida Poly building its reputation on the national stage as a leading polytechnic university, with an exciting research portfolio, student leaders on campus and a young alumni base beginning to influence the world in their careers.” – Dr. Rob MacCuspie Florida Poly’s first faculty member

Did you know?

Our tuition is the lowest in Florida’s State University System.


DOWNTOWN IS YOUR DINING HALL Why settle for a campus when you can have a whole city? Florida Poly is located in Lakeland, FL, a vibrant community with a wide variety of things to eat, see and do.

City living Check out world-class exhibits at the Polk Museum of Art, hit the shops at Lakeside Village or pull up to the Silver Moon drive-in for an old-school night out. And whether you’re looking for down-home barbecue or a waterfront wine bar, Lakeland delivers. You can always find something to do downtown, from farmers markets to food truck rallies. Our free shuttle service to and from campus will get you there quickly and easily.

Outdoor recreation If the outdoors is your thing, try biking the 29-mile Van Fleet trail or hiking among wildlife at Circle B Bar Reserve. Watersports almost go without saying. We have 554 lakes in Polk County and a boatload of ways to enjoy them, from kayaking in Lake Tenoroc to paddleboarding through the Winter Haven Chain of Lakes. Visiting the beaches on either coast is another great way to make the most of the Sunshine State. And if you hear the big city (or your favorite theme park) calling, we’re less than an hour drive from Tampa and Orlando.
