Program Description:

The Engineering Technology Associate in Science degree programs prepare students for employment or provide additional training for persons employed in manufacturing and high technology industries. SFSC offers the Advanced Manufacturing specialization along with six college credit certificates: Mechatronics, Engineering Technology Support Specialist, Automation, Lean Manufacturing, Pneumatics, Hydraulics, and Motors for Manufacturing and CNC Machinist.

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 degree program is fully transferable to four-year degree-granting institutions. This degree will fully transfer to Daytona State College’s Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology (BSET). That program prepares graduates for such jobs as systems engineer, process analyst, technical sales engineer, project engineer, and calibration engineer.
