Program Mission, Description, and Outcomes

Mission:

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

Description:

The Bachelors of Science in Engineering Technology prepares graduates for technical positions in the expanding fields of industrial operations, mechanical design, and construction design. The program has a strong commitment to maintain standards of excellence in content and to continuously upgrade curriculum to meet industry needs.

The Bachelors of Science in Engineering Technology uses a 2 + 2 model requiring the completion of an associates degree for entry into the program. The degree components are shown 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. Apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;

  2. Design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;

  3. Apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;

  4. Conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes; and

  5. Function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.

Financial Aid

    This program is eligible for federal financial aid and state Bright Futures Scholarship Program.

    Financing Options: All students are encouraged to apply for federal and state student financial assistance by completing their FAFSA at http://www.fafsa.gov. For more information on grants, loans and work programs available see the Office of Financial Aid webpage at http://www.daytonastate.edu/finaid. Students are also encouraged to apply for one of the many Daytona State College Foundation scholarships offered each semester. For more information see: http://daytonastate.edu/scholarships.

    Additional Admission Requirements

    1. Students must submit a separate application for admissions to the upper two years of this program.

    2. Applicants for the BSET 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, or higher.

    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 BSET program.

    4. Applicants who have not earned an associate degree may be admitted to the BSET 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. Students may use PHY2048C or ETG3541 Applied Mechanics and Physics as a prerequisite to EGN3321 Dynamics. ETG3541 may be used as an upper level technical elective.

    6. Students have two options for the required mathematics sequence; the engineering technology applied math sequence or the traditional engineering math sequence.  The engineering technology applied mathematics sequence consists of EGN2045 (Engineering and Technology Calculus I) and EGN3046 (Engineering and Technology Calculus II). Students may take MAC2311C or EGN2045 as a prerequisite for EGN3046. Students who complete the traditional engineering math sequence will take MAP2302 and do not need to take EGN3046, but are still required to fulfill 48 hours of upper level courses and should seek advising to find substitute courses.

    7. Students intending to continue to a graduate program in Engineering or other technical majors should complete the traditional engineering math sequence which consists of MAC1140, MAC2311C, MAC2312C, and MAP2302 (and optionally MAC2313C). The prerequisite math classes for this sequence are MAC1114 and MAC1105. Students taking math through differential equations (MAP2302) may substitute the required EGN3046 (Engineering and Technology Calculus II) for another upper level technical elective to help complete the requirement for 48 hours of technical coursework.

    8.  Students that wish to continue to a graduate engineering program should also complete the engineering core courses Statics-EGN3311, Dynamics-EGN3321, Thermodynamics-EGN3343, Engineering Economics-EGN3613, and Principles of Electrical Engineering-EGN3373 in addition to math through differential equations (MAP2302) as noted in item 6.

    9. Students transferring from an AS Engineering Technology program will have substitute courses for specific BSET Required courses. Students must complete 48 hours of upper level course work and should seek advising to determine substitution courses for courses completed in their specific AS degree.

    Additional Completion Requirements

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. Specific to the graduation requirements of the BSET, students must complete a course in Computer Programming (e.g. EGN3214, COP2800, COP2360, or equivalent). Students planning on doing technical computing as part of their career should take EGN3214 (Programming for Engineers).
    4. 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.

    Careers

    Some associated careers are technical positions in the expanding fields of engineering and technology including but not limited to: systems engineer, process analyst, technical sales engineer, project engineer, field engineer, and calibration engineer. 

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported in 2013 that the annual salary for the median 50% of engineering technologists was between $ 59,440 and $ 90,560. Information on engineering technology careers (both 2 year and 4 year degrees) are available at http://www.bls.gov/oes/current/oes173029.htm#nat.
