Program Overview

The goal of Engineering Technology at a Distance is to deliver Engineering Technology programs to students any place and any time.

The Engineering Technology at a Distance program at the University of Central Florida gives more students an opportunity to complete upper level courses in Engineering Technology and obtain a Bachelor of Science at a distance. This program is designed for students who have completed an Associate of Arts degree, an Associate of Science degree, or the equivalent. Courses are offered via video streaming with Internet Enhancement.

What are the advantages of distance education?

  • Convenient and flexible scheduling
  • Do not have to drive to campus daily for classes
  • Do not have to relocate to complete a degree program

What are the disadvantages of distance education?

  • Require more planning than traditional courses
  • Often spend more time communicating with faculty
  • DL courses usually require as much or more time per week than traditional face to face courses

Engineering Technology Programs at a Distance

The department offers two degree programs at a distance:

  • The Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering Technology, Operations Concentration is an ABET accredited degree program. It provides an orientation for professional careers in technical management and operations in manufacturing, sales, service, and construction industries.

Graduates in this concentration find careers in a number of areas including product development, manufacturing, quality assurance and logistics, sales and field engineering, and occupational safety.

  • The Bachelor of Science in Information Systems Technologyis a highly technical degree program geared primarily for students with an Associate of Science degree in Networking or a specific certificate (CCNA or MCSE) that wish to expand their knowledge of the field of information technology.

Courses in IST are primarily hands-on and prepare students for jobs running hardware and software systems that handle information within an organization. Students can choose elective courses to specialize in databases, local and wide area networks, software design and implementation, and computer and network security.

  • Fast Internet hook-up: Roadrunner, DSL, or broad bandwidth. No dial-up connection.
  • Windows Media Player 7.1 or higher
  • Adobe Acrobat Reader
  • Active email account

taking transient courses
Taking Transient Courses

Students enrolled in distance learning programs may need to take General Education, math, science, or lower level required courses at a local community college. If you are an admitted UCF student you must follow these procedures to take transient courses.

  • Check with Student Financial Assistance for any restrictions on scholarships, grants, or loans regarding transient coursework.
  • Check with your academic advisor for equivalency of transient courses to UCF courses.
  • A transient student form will need to be filled out and signed by your academic advisor. This can be done by fax.
  • Once the course is completed, a transcript from the transient institution will need to be sent to UCF.

Road to Success

Distance Learning courses require a high level of self-motivation and self-discipline. Here are some tips to assist you in a successful journey to a Bachelor’s degree at a distance.

  • Be self-motivated. You will be working on your own. Practice time management.
  • It is not enough just to view the video stream lecture. Take advantage of course resources in WebCT.
  • Avoid trying to view the lectures or cram material for a test at the last minute.
  • Contact your instructor with questions.
  • Contact your academic advisor before registration. It is important to have a plan of study to keep on track for graduation.
