The Engineering Technology Associate in Science degree program prepares students for employment or provides additional training for persons employed in manufacturing and high technology industries. FSCJ offers the Advanced Manufacturing specialization along with three college credit certificates: Engineering Technology Support, Mechanical Design and Fabrication and Pneumatics, Hydraulics and Motors for Manufacturing. The 18 credit hour technical core is aligned with the Manufacturing Skills Standard Council’s (MSSC) skills standards. After completing this core students will be prepared to take the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC) assessments for the Certified Production Technician (CPT) certification. The Engineering Technology Associate in Science degree program is fully transferable to four year degree granting institutions.

The Engineering Technology (ET) degree program was developed by the Florida Advanced Technological Education (FLATE) Center with Community Colleges and industries across the state and in close partnership with the Florida Department of Education Division of Adult and Career Education to address a growing need to supply manufacturers and high technology industries with qualified, highly skilled workers in the foreseeable future.
The new ET degree program is a cohesive, comprehensive degree program that focuses on a set of core classes that cover introductory computer aided drafting, electronics, instrumentation and testing, processes and materials, quality and safety. These core skills align with the national Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) Portable Production Technician Certification. The ET Core coupled with a second year degree specialization prepares students for many jobs in manufacturing and many other high-technology industries.
A valid MSSC CPT credential articulates to 15 credit hours of the ET Technical Core in any of colleges offering the degree in the state. The MSSC CPT is also one component of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) endorsed Stackable Certification System (SCS). This SCS system aligns industry validated credentials with academic programs and occupations supporting all manufacturing sectors.
