DSC to Launch Online Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology Starting Fall Semester

In Fall 2024, Daytona State College is set to launch a new program that will prepare graduates for technical roles in the growing fields of industrial operations. The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology, Industrial Engineering Technology concentration (BSET-IET) degree will be offered fully online, making it accessible to students across Volusia and Flagler counties.

Dr. Tom LoBasso, President of Daytona State College, emphasized the importance of offering this program in the region, where manufacturing hubs are rapidly expanding. This initiative underscores the college’s commitment to meeting the educational and workforce needs of students and business leaders in Central Florida.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there is expected to be a 12% increase in demand for Industrial Engineering graduates over the next decade, which surpasses the average growth rate for engineering-related careers. This demand is driven by factors such as technological advancements and increased focus on efficiency and cost-effectiveness in industrial operations.

The BSET-IET program builds upon the success of Daytona State College’s Angela and D.S. Patel School of Engineering Technology, which already offers Bachelor of Science degrees in Engineering Technology, Electrical Engineering Technology, and Information Technology. Graduates from these programs are equipped with in-demand skills for roles in data analytics, decision making, optimization, process improvement, quality control, and project management.

The BSET-IET program follows a 2+2 model; applicants must have completed an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree from a regionally accredited institution or have completed 60 credits of transferrable college-level coursework. Financial aid is available for eligible students interested in pursuing this program.
