Florida's newest university is celebrating its launch weekend.

Florida Polytechnic University introduced its futuristic Innovation, Science and Technology building to the public at a ceremony Saturday morning.

Gov. Rick Scott was among the dignitaries to attend and speak.

The ceremony gave members of the public a first look at Florida Polytechnic University.  That first look made quite the impression on David Brandt and his teenage son.

"Just awesome, unbelievable from the outside architecture," he said. "Even coming in here. All the architecture is great but this is really where the future is."

During his speech, Gov. Scott said the future is now a lot brighter thanks to the new university, which is set to open its doors this fall.

"We're doing this for one reason," he said. "Our kids deserve great jobs. In order to get great jobs, we need to have great educational institutions."

Florida Polytechnic President Randy Avent said students will receive an education at the school that is like no other in the state.

“We’re creating something that has a focus on economic development," he said. "It’s built in the same tradition as a MIT or a Stanford."

Students will learn in a building that's like no other in the world, thanks to famed architect Dr. Santiago Calatrava.

“I’m very proud," he said. "First of all, we built the building on cost and on time, and second, we also built it without having any accidents."

s the school prepares for the launch of the new school year Brandt said his family is already preparing their high school freshman for the all the 3-D printers, high-tech microscopes and advanced technology this school has to offer.

Classes start at Florida Poly on Aug. 25. More than 500 students are enrolled in the incoming class.
