Engineering Technology

Engineering technology is a field that covers a wide array of industries and jobs that have a direct hand in shaping the world around us. Engineering technicians help design and plan the buildings and machines we use to ensure they are sound and functional. They do this through a mix of creativity, technical skills and a detail-oriented mindset to invent effective solutions to everyday problems.

As part of Seminole State College's Department of Engineering Technology, you’ll benefit from expertly developed courses, award-winning facilities and standards of excellence.  Plus, as in real-life engineering, our program features frequent hands-on experiences with community projects and personal support from the area’s design and construction leaders. By using project-based learning, our students will deepen their understanding and appreciation for complex engineering topics.

Through the department’s programs you’ll develop your technical skills to become an effective Engineering Technology professional. Are you a problem-solver with an inventive insight into math and science? If so, a career in engineering technology may be the right fit for you.
