Florida Polytechnic University 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 find at a selective private college.
Florida Poly is an affordable public university—engineered from the ground up to bring great faculty, industry partners, and like-minded students together. We inspire you—with award-winning buildings and facilities, and state-of-the-art labs. We dare you — through student competitions, high-end internships, and a senior capstone. We invest in you as our best hope for finding technology to solve immediate, real-world challenges.
The world’s fastest growing companies — Google, Apple, IBM — look for recent graduates who can balance big-picture thinking (business savvy) with core data analysis skills. You will build upon foundational math and quantitative econometrics knowledge and grow to master logistics and supply chain efficiency.
Concentrations: Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Health Informatics, Intelligent Mobility, Quantitative Economics and Econometrics
As computing power gets engineered into everything we own — from communications tools to the buildings we occupy and the vehicles we pilot — industry looks for skilled computer engineers. These high-salary, high-responsibility careers call on your training in Embedded System Design, Digital Logic Design and Machine Intelligence.
Concentrations: Advanced Topics, Digital Design, Embedded System Design, Machine Intelligence, Autonomous Robotic Systems
If you have the aptitude and interest to learn the most relevant core computer science ideas and skills, you will enjoy an almost endless variety of career opportunities — from cybersecurity to gaming to digital product development and management.
Concentrations: Advanced Topics, Game Development and Simulation, Information Assurance and Cyber Security, Software Engineering
Behind every corporate profit and loss statement, and every new product idea, is a deep set of data that helps companies and engineers make better choices. As a data scientist, you will build the tools that turn big data into real-world insights.
Concentrations: Big Data Analytics,
Health Informatics, Intelligent Mobility
Quantitative Economics and Econometrics
In a digital world, electrical engineers design solutions, keep the power running and innovate technology improvements. You gain the engineering skills and analytic tools required to solve real-world problems dealing with Electrodynamics, Embedded Systems Design or Digital Hybrid Systems.
Concentrations: Advanced Topics, Control Systems, Electromagnetics and Communication,
Engineering Mathematics combines mathematical theory, scientific computing and practical engineering and sciences to address today’s complicated real-world problems. It emphasizes the intrinsic unity, through mathematics, of the fundamental problems of applied and engineering science. Students typically go on to jobs in medicine, bioengineering, computer technology, energy conversion, software engineering and even financial consulting.
Concentrations: Complex Systems, Mathematical Medicine and Biology
Engineering Physics, which directly supports Florida Poly’s vision to prepare 21st Century innovators, focuses on the use of physics principles in the analysis and evaluation of engineering problems such as sustainability, medicine and nanotechnology. Engineering physicists are critical to technological advances which, in turn, drive economic development and enable innovation in medicine, national security, energy, transportation and other critical components of our economy and quality of life.
Concentrations: Physics of Space, Physics of Medicine, Physics of Energy
Environmental Engineering focuses on protecting the environment through the design of technologies that reduce pollution, mitigate existing contamination and reduce future environmental impact. Professionals in this field work across a number of industries to increase sustainability through alternative energy, water reclamation, waste treatment, recycling and more.
Concentrations: Modern Techniques in Sustainability, Water
Apply the principles of design, analysis and manufacturing to create and test mechanical systems ranging from massive to microscopic in size. Choose a focus in Nanotechnology, Operations Research or Materials and Advanced Manufacturing.
Concentrations: Advanced Topics Electives, Aerospace, Materials and Advanced Manufacturing, Mechanical and Thermal Systems, Nanotechnology, Operations Research
