Where academic programs include real experience ...
We let our students—yes, even freshmen—use the really sensitive instruments. Our students build concrete canoes, fly planes, pie professors for charity, and design electric cars, mini baja vehicles, rockets and Rubik’s Cube-solving robots.
We have a botanical garden we call “The Jungle,” the largest research-grade telescope in Florida, and a top 10 nationally ranked surfing team. Our graduates are offered jobs at an alarmingly high rate (yes, even during down times) and we are home to a really, really popular ice hockey club (it’s true).
Where you can build an education around
your passion ...

If you’re undecided, that’s okay, too. We offer specially designed programs for students who aren’t yet sure which field of study they love the most.
This is a place where all students—including freshmen—are treated as capable scholars. We won’t make you wade through two years of “general” requirements. You’ll get started right away, diving into relevant courses in your major from day one.
In dedicated labs (e.g., lasers, robotics, surf mechanics) and fieldwork that takes you out of the classroom, you’ll build skills and savvy that will ensure your future success.
