Engineering Technology is a growing field that involves a combination of math, science, design and communications skills to create and repair various devices and structures. An associate degree in Engineering Technology provides a versatile foundation from which students can pursue a variety of careers.
Warm sunshine, coastal breeze, and ocean all around. Such conditions make the Florida Keys a great place to visit, but at Florida Keys Community College, students are inspired to do much more than sunbathe on the beach. The College is using the powerful natural resources in its own backyard—sun, water, and winds—to generate green energy, wean the planet from its fossil fuel dependency, and train students for new, cutting-edge technology jobs.
Supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation, FKCC’s NEW Associate in Science degree in Engineering Technology features a unique specialization in Renewable Energy that focuses career training in solar, wind, and ocean power technologies. The new program supports the nation’s pledge to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and double the renewable energy workforce by 2025.
If you’re passionate about the planet and want a career that is exciting and rewarding, then your future begins at CFK.
