This comprehensive degree program was developed in part by the Florida Advanced Technological Education
(FLATE) Center to give manufacturers and advanced technology industries
qualified, highly skilled workers. It is a model for colleges in Florida
and throughout the country.
This degree offers sub-plans in:
The subplan in Biomedical Technology prepares you for a potentially lucrative career as a
biomedical equipment technician. With a high number of medical device
companies, Florida has a tremendous need for skilled technicians
who can maintain and repair the sophisticated medical machines that take
care of us.
Our core classes for all subplans align with the national Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) Portable Production Technician Certification. If you have already earned the MSSC-CPT, you can receive 15 articulated credit hours toward this Engineering Technology degree.
Our areas of specializations in quality, digital design or biomedical systems can be taken as certificates that transfer to the 60-credit-hour A.S. degree.
To work in today’s manufacturing operations, employees need precise advanced technology skills. Locally
and nationally, employers have a hard time finding these skilled
workers, according to recent news reports.
With manufacturing firms returning to Florida, they bring with them a need for such highly skilled employees. Engineering technicians support engineering and manufacturing processes by solving technical problems in research and development, sales, construction, assembly, quality assurance and prototyping. Our programs help you get started as:
A long-time leader in workforce education, St. Petersburg College developed the Tampa Bay area’s first Collaborative Center for Emerging Technologies as an
open manufacturing factory work environment to simulate skills needed in emerging technologies in August, 2012.
SPC's SolidWorks Design Center was the first of its kind in Florida
developed through the collaborative efforts of local industry and makes use of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) equipment, 3-D scanners and 3-D printers.
In all, SPC has four state-of-the-art labs, including additive
manufacturing-rapid prototyping, quality measurement and electronic
