Associate in Science in Engineering Technology – Mechanical Design and Fabrication (MECH-AS): https://www.pensacolastate.edu/academic-programs/mech-as/

The Mechanical Design & Fabrication specialization prepares students for careers in CNC machining, mechanical design, and metal fabrication. The program offers unique technical skills and opportunities for employment in local and regional industries. The coursework provides the basis for employment in a variety of manufacturing areas some of which include Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), Computerized Machining (CNC), Production Welding; and Metal and Composite Fabrication. Industry standard software taught in this program includes AutoCAD, PlasmaCAM, MasterCam, and SolidWorks. A major objective of this program is to teach proficiency in CNC programming, set-up, and operation of CNC machining and turning centers to prepare students for employment in this high demand industry. To accomplish this task, the lab is equipped with Haas CNC milling and turning machining centers, Camtech CNC gantry router, CNC plasma cutting, metal fabricating, and welding equipment. Additional skills taught include precision measuring and Rapid prototyping using an EMS 3D printer. Included in the Engineering Technology A.S. degree are five college credit certificates, these “micro-degrees” are CNC Machinist / Fabricator, CNC Machinist Operator / Programmer, CNC Composite Fabricator/Programmer, Mechanical Designer Programmer, and Engineering Technology Support Specialist. Most can be completed in one semester. Students can also acquire practical working experience by participating in Co-op opportunities with local manufacturers.

The Associate in Science in Engineering Technology – Mechanical Design and Fabrication includes College Credit Certificates in:

  • CNC Composite Fabricator / Programmer
  • Machinist / Fabricator
  • CNC Machinist Operator / Programmer
  • Mechanical Designer / Programmer
  • Digital Manufacturing Specialist

Associate in Science in Electronics Engineering Technology (ELEC-AS): https://www.pensacolastate.edu/academic-programs/elec-as/

The Electronics Engineering Technology Program provides students with the fundamentals of electronics that will prepare them as technicians in a variety of fields including computer technology, networking, instrumentation, and biomedical. Selected specialty courses are available to provide detailed instruction in these technical areas. The content includes but is not limited to DC circuits, AC circuits, solid-state devices, analog circuits, digital fundamentals, and circuits. Integrated into this content will be communications skills, employability skills, safe and efficient work practices, use of circuit diagrams and schematics, and soldering. The program includes lecture and significant hands-on lab experiences. The program focuses on a common core of foundational, intermediate and advanced courses required of all students. Students will then specialize in one or more emphasis areas depending on their career goals.

The Associate in Science degree in Electronics Engineering includes College Credit Certificates in:

  • Electronics Aide
  • Electronics Technician
  • Robotics and Simulation Technician

Associate in Science in Engineering Technology – Advanced Manufacturing (ENGNR-AS): https://www.pensacolastate.edu/academic-programs/engnr-as/

This program offers a sequence of courses that provides coherent and rigorous content aligned with challenging academic standards and relevant technical knowledge and skills needed to prepare for further education and careers in the manufacturing career cluster; provides technical skill proficiency, and includes competency-based applied learning that contributes to the academic knowledge, higher-order reasoning and problem-solving skills, work attitudes, general employability skills, technical skills, and occupation-specific skills, and knowledge of all aspects of the manufacturing career cluster. The program consists of general education requirements and a set of Engineering Technology Core courses which leads to the college credit certificate, Engineering Technology Support Specialist.  The program Engineering Technology Core aligns with the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council’s (MSSC). MSSC skill standards define the knowledge, skills, and performance needed for manufacturing workers. After completing the Technical Core and the General Education requirements, students should be prepared to pass the MSSC – CPT Certified Production Technician (CPT) Certification. A student can also acquire practical working experience by participating in our Co-op opportunities with local manufacturers.

The Associate in Science degree in Engineering Technology – Advanced Manufacturing includes College Credit Certificates in:

  • Engineering Technology Support Specialist
  • Manufacturing Automation Specialist
