NSF Grantees Poster Session
Obtaining feedback from industries is vital to reviewing curriculum content of schools preparing a competent workforce to meet industries’ needs. In 2017, a survey was developed by FLATE (Florida Advanced Technological Education Center of Excellence) in partnership with Polk State College (PSC), the Florida Forum for Engineering Technology (ET Forum) and FloridaMakes, the NIST Manufacturing Extension Partnership organization in Florida to check the alignment of the statewide curriculum frameworks for the Engineering Technology Associate of Science Degrees with the skillset (competencies) that industry identified as critical for their engineering technician and advanced manufacturing workforce needs. The results showed strong alignment and differences will be addressed in the next statewide review of the standards and benchmarks defined in the Curriculum Frameworks. This poster will share the background of the survey, previous work to define the competencies within the A.S. Engineering Technology Degree and the survey results and next steps for the educators.
