LAKELAND, FL (WFLA) - A Lakeland school is in the national spotlight, but it's not because of its outstanding sports programs or its students' good grades.

Florida Polytechnic University is getting national attention because of its unique look.

The school's Innovation, Science and Technology (IST) Building was recently featured in a Dodge Ram commercial. The commercial shows a truck moving materials at the school, which is still under construction.

“The building’s cool architecture and the ruggedness of the construction site were just the right combination for this production,” said commercial producer Ken Rosen on the Florida Polytech website.

The building, which is scheduled to be completed in June of this year, was designed by famed Spanish architect Dr. Santiago Calatrava. The building features a 160,000-square-foot domed structure that can be seen by motorists on Interstate 4 and has already become a regional landmark, according to the Florida Polytech website.

Florida Polytech has a college of engineering and a college of innovation and technology. The university offers bachelor of science and master of science degrees in multiple subjects. Classes are scheduled to begin this August.
