Preparing a Workforce for Advanced Manufacturing

The Engineering Technology (ET) Associate of Science degree and certificate programs--conceived, engineered, and coordinated by FLATE--focus on a set of core courses covering introductory computer-aided drafting, electronics, instrumentation and testing, processes and materials, quality, and safety. These core skills support the Florida workforce, and align with the national Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) Certified Production Technician certification, providing value-added benefits to industry. The ET core, coupled with a second-year degree specialization, prepares students for jobs in manufacturing and high technology industries. The ET degree also provides students with accelerated pathways to four-year degrees.
