Polk State College offers a two-year Engineering Technology Associate in Science degree program that prepares students for employment or provides additional training in advanced manufacturing and high technology industries. PSC currently offers the Advanced Manufacturing specialization as part of the program. The Engineering Technology Associate in Science degree program is fully transferable to four year degree granting institutions.
The 18 credit hour technical core of this degree is closely aligned with the national Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) Certified Production Technician (CPT) industry certification. After completing this core, students will be prepared to take the MSSC assessments for the CPT Certification. Students who have already earned the MSSC-CPT will receive 15 articulated credit-hours towards the Engineering Technology degree. Students that have completed their Journeyman Apprenticeship program at Mosaic as either Electrical-Instrumentation-Automation Technicians or as Mechanic-Millwright will receive 16 additional articulated credit-hours towards the Engineering Technology degree.
