Florida Poly was established on April 20, 2012 to advance the state’s economy. We’ve established a name for ourselves as a university with a rigorous curriculum, advanced research equipment, and a focus on solving industry problems with creative solutions.
Florida Poly offers STEM minded high school students like you an alternative — a dynamic, research-based and hands-on science, technology, engineering, and math education delivered with the small-campus, one-on-one attention you'll find at a selective private college.
Applied research is more than a buzzword at Florida Poly. From classroom demonstrations to our open laboratories, we believe solutions to today’s problems are just a big idea away.
Renowned University researchers partner with industry and tech leaders to advance knowledge and technology in growing, in-demand fields.
Florida Poly’s Academic Success Center puts on a semi-annual career and internship fair for students to connect with employers from across the country. This is a networking opportunity for students to land an internship or a job after college.

Established in 2014, the Student Government Association (SGA) acts as the students’ voice to the University’s leadership, campus community, and public at large. In order to provide a positive college experience for all students at Florida Polytechnic University, the association approves funds, regulates campus-sponsored clubs, and advocates for students and their rights.
On-campus living and dining are an essential part of the University experience. They literally fuel education and growth. At Florida Poly, the supportive, family-like environment extends to the residence and dining facilities and helps boost academic and personal success.
Two modern residence halls are central to the growing Florida Poly campus. They are an equally easy walk to the iconic Innovation, Science, and Technology building where classes are held and the dining and fitness facilities. Students enjoy the latest technology and accommodations in a setting that’s prime for continuous learning.
The library includes a digital collection of more 150,000 full-text e-book volumes that are a mixture of owned and licensed materials. The collection would require more than 15,000 linear feet of stack area for shelving of books if they were not in digital format.
