Individuals interested in a career in engineering technology can start their studies now at College of Central Florida. CF offers a new associate degree program in Engineering Technology Quality Specialization for employment in the medical and manufacturing industries. Students can make themselves even more attractive to local employers by becoming certified by the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council. CF is an authorized test site for the exam. Students who earn an associate degree in Engineering Technology can begin work in the manufacturing industry or continue their studies at colleges or universities that offer bachelor's programs.
This program is an excellent educational opportunity for students interested in starting, or looking for new career growth opportunities in the field of manufacturing," said Brian O'Conner, site director at Lockheed Martin's Ocala plant. "Graduates of the program will be highly employable by local manufacturing companies who are always competing for the most qualified people for their workforces. Linking the associate degree in Engineering Technology to bachelor's degree programs, the forecasted shortage of graduating engineers, and the tuition reimbursement programs offered by many of the local businesses make this program a great way for students to get their career off on the right track," O'Conner said.
