Program Mission, Description, and Outcomes

Mission:

To prepare students for successful employment in the field of Engineering Technology and Electronics through quality education and advisement.

Description:

The program prepares graduates for technical positions in the expanding fields of electrical, digital, computers and microprocessors. The primary objective is to provide a broad foundation of theoretical and practical knowledge in the areas of electrical and electronics circuits, digital circuits, computers, power systems, programmable logic controllers, microprocessors, and control systems.

The program uses a 2 + 2 model requiring the completion of an associates degree for entry into the program. The degree components are below.

Program Educational Objectives

The educational objectives of the BSET program are as follows.

  1. Career: Graduates will have a broad understanding of the key principles and practices of engineering technology, the written and oral communications skills, and the ability to work with others to apply these skills and knowledge to the design, implementation, and maintenance of systems.
  2. Skills: Graduates will have an understanding of the mathematical and scientific concepts that underlie engineering technology applications, will apply this understanding, and acquire new skills and knowledge necessary to analyze technology problems and develop suitable solutions.
  3. Professionalism and Ethics: Graduates will have an understanding of the ethical, human, and social issues of their field and will be involved members of the local and global communities acting as responsible technical professionals.
  4. Life-Long Learning: Graduates will be active contributors to their profession with a strong commitment to continuous individual and organizational improvement, effective communication, teamwork, quality, and timeliness.

Program Outcomes

Graduates of the program will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate an ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined engineering technology activities. 
  2. Demonstrate an ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies.
  3. Demonstrate an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes.
  4. Demonstrate an ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives. 
  5. Demonstrate an ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team..
  6. Demonstrate an ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems.
  7. Demonstrate an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature.
  8. Demonstrate an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development. 
  9. Demonstrate an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity.
  10. Demonstrate a knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context.
  11. Display commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.

Note: This program is eligible for federal financial aid and state bright futures.

Additional Admission Requirements


  1. Students must submit a separate application for admissions to the upper two years of this program.
  2. Applicants for the program must have earned an Associate of Science (AS), an Associate of Applied Science (AAS), an Associate of Arts (AA) degree, or previous Bachelor of Science (BS) with an overall grade point average of 2.5.
  3. Students with a grade point average between 2.0 and 2.49 may be admitted conditionally. AA graduates may be admitted to the program with the approval of the Chair of the program.
  4. Applicants who have not earned an associate degree may be admitted to the program if they have earned at least 60 transferable college level credits with a grade of "C" or better in all core courses. Applicants in this category must otherwise meet all other requirements for admission which will be granted by approval of the Chair. Students gaining admission through greater than 60 hours must have completed a class in College Algebra (MAC 1105) or equivalent with a grade of C or better for admission.
  5. Prior to graduation, students must complete: a) at least 48 hours of approved upper level technical courses, b) 36 hours of general education course work and, c) 44 hours of approved lower level technical course work.
  6. Students must have completed two years of the same foreign language in high school or two semesters of the same college level foreign language to graduate.
  7. Specific to the graduation requirements of the program, students must complete a course in C language based Computer Programming (COP2001, COP2220, or equivalent).
  8. Students must complete the State mandated 36 hours of general education core prior to graduation: Communications - 9 hrs; Mathematics - 6 hrs; Natural Sciences - 6 hrs; Humanities - 6 hrs; Social Sciences - 6 hrs and an additional three (3) hours from any of the five categories.
  9. Students should take the engineering technology applied mathematics sequence which consists of EGN 2045 (Engineering and Technology Calculus I, 4 hours) and EGN3046 (Engineering and Technology Calculus II, 3 hours). Students may take MAC2311C or EGN2045 as a prerequisite for EGN 3046. COP 1000 or other programming language is also a prerequisite for EGN3046 as it includes MATLAB programming in the course. 
  10. Students intending to continue to a graduate program in Engineering or other technical majors may alternatively take the engineering math sequence which consists of MAC1140, MAC2311C, MAC2312C, and MAP2302C. The prerequisite math classes for this sequence are MAC1114 and MAC1105. With Department Chair approval, students completing this sequence may use MAP2302C (Differential Equations and Lab) to substitute the program-required course, EGN3046 (Engineering and Technology Calculus II). Also, some courses in the engineering math sequence are not required to complete the BSEET program and therefore, may not be eligible for financial aid assistance. For more details, contact the Office of Financial Aid Services, financialaid@DaytonaState.edu.

Careers

Some associated careers are technical positions in the expanding fields of electrical engineering, computers and microprocessors, and control systems.

The bureau of labor statistics reported in 2012 that the annual salary for the middle 50% of engineering technologists was between $ 57,850 and $ 83,120. Median salary information for 2013 for Electronics and Electrical Technicians are available at http://www.bls.gov/oes.
