Engineering Technology: The Engineering Technology (ET) Associate in Science degree program provides the training necessary to work in the high-tech job market in the Florida Technology Corridor. Students enjoy hands-on learning, attentive instructors and fully equipped labs with the most up-to-date equipment. In EFSC's Engineering Technology program students can complete an Associate in Science degree or several college credit certificates, each with a different focus in areas of engineering and advanced manufacturing. These certificates then lead into the Associate's degree. The content prepares students for nationally recognized certifications.
Composite Fabrication: What do windmills, hockey sticks and explosion-proof military housing have in common? The answer is composite technology: an innovative method used to manufacture an array of products – from household goods to futuristic buildings. In this growing field, the EFSC Engineering Technology Program offers a Composite Fabrication and Testing College Credit Certificate (CFCC). This nationally-recognized certificate can be built upon toward an Associate in Science degree in Engineering Technology. The A.S. degree is transferable to a Bachelor’s degree at EFSC and many other Florida colleges and universities.
Robotics: The growing automation industry relies on trained experts in robotics and simulation. EFSC's Robotics and Simulation Technician College Credit Certificate (CCC) trains students to design, operate, test and repair robotic equipment systems. This certificate's courses may be part of the Engineering Technology A.S. degree.
