Innovation Labs

About Our Labs

Florida Poly’s commitment to teaching through doing becomes easier with the high quality of our Innovation Labs. These labs bring textbook learning to life and give students the chance to test their big ideas on some of the most advanced equipment available.

Supercomputing Lab

In this high-performance lab, students perform complex calculations, run simulations and create detailed data maps using a high-speed, high-capacity IBM processor that’s similar to the Watson supercomputer.

Entrepreneurship Lab

Research is transformed into real-world success in this collaborative workspace that blends technology and business to help students, faculty and industry partners bring new innovations to market.

Cyber Gaming & Digital Media Lab

Wearable computers, media production, game development and simulated environments are just some of the innovations to come out of this lab, which features a multisensory communications center that’s continually updated with new technologies.

Visualization and Technology Collaboration (VTC) Robotics Lab

This lab combines the digital realm of programming with the tactile world of mechanical engineering and gives students the opportunity to get hands on with the latest technology in robotics, drones, remote management and advanced 3D graphics.

Rapid Application Development (RAD) Makerspace Lab

This hybrid manufacturing systems environment holds 55 3D printers and digital object scanners, making it one of the largest MakerBot Innovation Centers in the world.
