University Rankings

Florida Poly is the nation’s leading institution of change, engineered from the ground up to push the boundaries of education in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

After only six years in existence, Florida Polytechnic University made its first appearance in the national rankings of the prestigious U.S News and World Report as a top 75 engineering college without a doctorate degree.

In its national ranking debut, Florida Poly breaks out at 72 among more than 230 undergraduate engineering colleges without a Ph.D., and in the top 40 of those that are public. The University is also the only top undergraduate engineering program in the state of Florida to appear in this category.

Florida Poly had a remarkable 2019-20 academic year, having achieved ABET accreditation in record time, assuring its programs meet essential standards to produce graduates ready to enter the STEM fields.

The University also had a significant increase in student applications at the beginning of 2020, contrasting the trends in postsecondary enrollment throughout the nation. Later, despite the challenges caused by COVID-19, the University was able to grow its incoming class to nearly 500 in fall 2020, with gains in both quantity and quality of students.
