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. 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.

Program Competencies

 
The program prepares graduates to have competence in the following curricular areas:
  1. the application of circuit analysis and design, computer programming, associated software, analog and digital electronics, and microcomputers, and engineering standards to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic(s) systems;

  2. the application of natural sciences and mathematics at or above the level of algebra and trigonometry to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic systems;

  3. the ability to analyze, design, and implement one or more of the following: control systems, instrumentation systems, communications systems, computer systems, or power systems;

  4. the ability to apply project management techniques to electrical/electronic(s) systems; and

  5. the ability to utilize differential and integral calculus, as a minimum, to characterize the performance of electrical/electronic systems.

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 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. Students may use PHY2048C or ETG3541 (Applied Mechanics and Physics) as a prerequisite to the required EGN3321 (Dynamics). 

    6. 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 EGN3046

    7. 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.

    8. Students may use MAP2302C (Differential Equations and Lab) to substitute for the program-required course EGN3046 (Engineering and Technology Calculus II). Students must still complete 48 hours of upper level course work and should seek advising to determine suitable upper level courses.

    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 program, students must complete a course in C language based Computer Programming (EGN3214, COP2001, COP2220, COP2800, CO2360 or equivalent). EGN3214 may be used as an upper level technical elective.
    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 electrical engineering, computers and microprocessors, and control systems.

    The bureau of labor statistics reported in 2017 that the median annual salary for Electrical and Electronics Engineering Technologist as $63,660. Median salary information for 2017 for Electronics and Electrical Technicians are available at http://www.bls.gov/oes.
