Program Mission, Description, and Outcomes

Mission:

The mission of the Engineering Technology program is to prepare students for employment or provide additional training for persons employed in manufacturing and high technology industries. The program has two specializations - Electronics and Digital Design and Modeling. The program prepares students for entering into the manufacturing career cluster.

Description:

The Engineering Technology Associate of Science degree program at Daytona State College prepares students for employment or provides additional training for persons employed in the highly evolving manufacturing (embedded with new technology) and high technology industries. The program also provides specialization in Digital Design and Modeling and Electronics along with embedded college credit certificates in Applied Technology Specialist, Computer Aided Design and Drafting, Electronics Aide, and Engineering Technology Support Specialist.

The 18 credit hour technical core of this degree is closely aligned with the national Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) - Certified Production Technician (CPT) industry certification. After completing this core, students will be prepared to take the MSSC assessment for the CPT certification. Students who have already earned the MSSC-CPT will receive 15 articulated credit-hours towards the Engineering Technology degree. The Engineering Technology Associate in Science is fully transferable to four year BSET degree granting institutions.

AS Certificates That Lead To This Degree:

The following AS Certificates are embedded within this degree. You may pursue the AS degree and also earn the AS certificates while completing the requirements for the degree, or pursue the AS certificates to develop or upgrade your skills. Contact your faculty or academic advisor for details and course options.
