The innovative spirit at the heart of Florida Poly starts with our renowned faculty.

Guiding Florida Poly’s students to STEM success are distinguished experts, leaders from industry, and educators on the cutting edge of their field. 

Their dedication to innovation is evident in the patents they secure, the research they publish, and the awards they earn. But it’s perhaps most present in the intensive, one-on-one education they provide to students.  

Florida Poly’s faculty members take full advantage of the University’s small class sizes to deliver thoughtful, rigorous courses that are targeted to the changing needs of industry. The result is students who are prepared and determined to meet the demands of today and the challenges of tomorrow.
