Your formula for success starts here. In the Chemical Engineering Technology program you’ll study engineering design calculations, chemical process unit operations, process simulation and control, industry safety, and environmental engineering. Upon graduation you may find yourself working as a chemical technologist, an environmental technician, a process engineering technologist, or a process designer.
Graduates find work as engineering design assistants, production operators, technologists, technical sales, environmental field technicians and production technologists. Career opportunities exist in engineering design, computer-based process simulation, technical sales, field operations and environmental work.
An interest in science and mathematics would be an asset. Specific interest in physics and chemistry are desirable.
