Engineering Technology Program Overview
Associate in Science in Engineering Technology 64 credits/ 20 courses
The Engineering Technology (ET) degree is a comprehensive two-year program focusing on a set of ET core classes that prepare you for the workforce and transfer seamlessly to a number of Bachelor of Applied Science Degrees offered at Florida’s universities, state colleges and community colleges by applying 60 credit hours of an A.S. Degree directly to a 4-year bachelor’s degree.
The ET core classes, combined with a second-year degree specialization, will prepare you for more than 307,000 jobs in the high-demand technology industries in Florida. Students interested in pursuing the degree should enroll in the ET certificate which feeds into the AS degree. This certificate is a core foundational element of the program and an industry-recognized certificate.
Relay/Substation Tech Specialization
The Relay/Substation Tech Specialization provides students with the skills and knowledge to maintain and manage the transmission and distribution of power through electric utility systems. Coursework will cover theory in three phase power, protective relaying, power transformers, high voltage breakers, and electrical utility print reading and miscellaneous substation systems.
Engineering Technology Specialist
The ET core classes also align with the industry-recognized Manufacturing Skill Standards Council Portable Production Technician Certification (MSSC CPT), which is one component of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) endorsed Stackable Certification System (SCS). As you work toward your two-year ET degree, you will earn an Engineering Technology Certificate and will be prepared to take the MSSC test.
