Corporate Roundtable

Investing in the World’s Future STEM Leaders

Corporate Roundtable Logo

An all-STEM curriculum, including 10 bachelor’s degrees and two master’s degrees, with 31 programs of study designed to prepare graduates for careers in today’s fastest-growing fields, Florida Poly is ranked as a top 40 public undergraduate engineering university (without a doctorate) by US News World & Report and the third best public university in Florida. With STEM job growth estimated at approximately 25% over the next two years due to an underdeveloped pipeline of high-tech professionals, Florida Poly is providing the kind of graduates Florida needs to impact the global innovation marketplace.

Mutual Success Through Partnerships

Engaging corporations in support for research programs, interaction with students and faculty, and participation in a range of university-wide opportunities exemplifies the convergence of industry and academia. While protecting its intellectual vitality and integrity, Florida Poly seeks to maximize opportunities for partnership and collaboration with industry.
