Florida Polytechnic University’s reputation for providing a rigorous, STEM-focused
education continues to attract top-quality students who are driven to excel in their
academic endeavors while contributing to a vibrant and forward-thinking campus culture.
An innovative instruction philosophy that supports our academic mission and centers
on the merits of project-based learning is at the heart of the University’s course
delivery. In a small class environment, students are encouraged to explore and test
the boundaries of their STEM ambitions. They’re supported by a stellar group of faculty
who bring their knowledge and industry expertise to work through the rigorous curriculum.
We are proud of these superior, accomplished faculty members and our hundreds of graduates
who have gone on to secure coveted positions at renowned companies like Lockheed Martin,
Northrup Grumman, SpaceX, and the Walt Disney Company, just to name a few.
As our strong academic offerings continue to grow and evolve, so too will the successes
of our highly desirable graduates and their real-world technology solutions.
Florida Poly’s Capstone Design Showcase is the largest student design event of the year. The event is the culminating activity of
theCapstone Design course, giving the university’s graduating seniors the opportunity to showcase their inventions
to a panel of judges, invited guests, and their peers.
The Capstone Projects give students an opportunity to apply the knowledge that they
have learned in a real-world setting. Students can touch, see and feel the impacts
of their work while companies absorb the benefit of the skills these students bring
to the table.
