Engineering technologists are implementers and problem solvers. Some help engineers and scientists with research and development. Some build or assemble equipment, do experiments, collect data or calculate results. Others are involved with quality control,
checking products, testing and finding
ways to produce products more efficiently.
As an engineering technologist, you may work
in a wide variety of industries depending
on your area of interest and specialization,
including aerospace, medicine, environmental
sciences, computer science, electronics
and software development, manufacturing
and construction virtually any industry in
which products are designed, developed or
Engineering technologists who have earned
their bachelor's degree often pursue graduate
study in engineering management, construction
management, business administration,
or similar programs in order to advance in
Coursework includes algebra, trigonometry,
applied calculus and science courses. The
level of required math and science study is
focused more on application than theory.
Advanced Technical Certificate in Cybersecurity & Cyberforensics
For IT professionals seeking special expertise, the college offers the Advanced Technical Certificate in Cybersecurity and Cyberforensics program consisting of 18 credits in protection and analysis of computer and network systems security and forensics.
Bachelor of Science in Information Technology
Prepares graduates for technical positions in the expanding fields of information technology, network security, digital forensics, databases, and programming. Graduates of this program will have a broad understanding of processes that support the development, delivery, management and security of information systems. The program includes detailed course work in all aspects of the IT field including operating systems, networks, programming, digital security and forensics, databases, and web systems.
Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology (BSET)
Prepares graduates for technical positions in
the expanding fields of industrial operations,
mechanical design, or construction design. The
primary objective is to provide a broad foundation
of theoretical and practical knowledge in the areas
of electrical and electronics circuits, mechanics,
computers, energy systems, programmable logic
controllers, technical economics, and quality
assurance. Some associated job titles for graduates
include systems engineer, process analyst, technical
sales engineer, project engineer and calibration
Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology - Electrical Engineering Technology Concentration
Prepares graduates for technical positions in the
expanding fields of electronics, electrical engineering,
digital computing and microprocessors, photonics
and lasers. The primary objective is to provide
a broad foundation of theoretical and practical
knowledge in the areas of electrical and electronics
circuits, digital circuits, computers, power systems,
programmable logic controllers, microprocessors
and control systems.
- Daytona State College's bachelor of science
degrees in Engineering Technology and Information Technology are offered
in a 2 + 2 format, meaning program applicants
must have earned an Associate of Science (AS),
an Associate of Applied Science (AAS), or an
Associate of Arts (AA) degree, with an overall
grade point average of 2.5.
Students with a grade point average of between
2.0 and 2.49 may be admitted conditionally. Those with
AA degrees who have completed all core general
education courses will be required to complete
a total of 18 credits in appropriate technical
prerequisite courses. AS/AAS graduates must
complete additional core general education
- Applicants who have not earned an associate
degree may be admitted to these programs if
they have earned at least 60 BSET transferrable
credits with a grade of C or better in all
core general education courses. Applicants in
this category must otherwise meet all other
requirements for admission, which will be
granted by approval of the program chair.
