Daytona State College Launches a New High-Tech Degree

For students interested in high-tech industries and the rapidly evolving world of manufacturing,
Daytona State College (DSC) announces a new Engineering Technology Associate of Science (AS) degree. The program pathway features specializations in Digital Design, Modeling and Electronics, along with college-credit certificates for Applied Technology Specialist, Computer Aided Design and Drafting, Electronics Aide, and Engineering Technology Support Specialist. With its 18 credit-hour core aligned closely with the national Manufacturing Skill Standards Council’s Certified Production Technician certification, the new program prepares students for critical industry credentials, as well as for transfer to a baccalaureate program.

All Engineering Technology A.S graduates can transfer seamlessly to DSC’s Bachelor of Science in

Engineering Technology (BSET) and similar programs at Florida universities and colleges, including Valencia College, Miami Dade College, University of West Florida or Florida A & M. Several opportunities for degree specializations are available at each insitution. 
Graduates from the AS degree also can transfer to a number of Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) programs offered across the state. The 2+2 agreements apply 60 credit hours of the AS degree directly into 4-year bachelor’s programs. The number of BAS-degree offerings across the state is growing rapidly.

Additionally, DSC’s AS degree in Engineering Technology will transfer to the BAS in Operations
