About the Program
The Chemical Technology certificate (CHT) is a three-semester (two regular semesters and one summer session) program that prepares students for employment as technicians playing a major role in the synthesis, manufacture, and analysis of engineered materials, and basic chemical constituents and intermediates. Chemical technicians work primarily as assistants to engineers and chemists doing basic research, manufacturing, analyses, and quality control. There is a significant need for qualified technicians to assist chemists and chemical engineers, and the allied materials industries, to implement new technological advances, and to development new materials and new analytical techniques. The program is designed to admit qualified students who need a basic introduction to Chemical Technology and others who desire to pursue a degree in chemistry, chemical technology, or chemical engineering.
Certificate curricula are reviewed and updated periodically in response to community and industry demands. The student is cautioned to discuss certificate choices and course selections with an Engineering Advisor before each registration cycle.
Learning experiences for students in Engineering Technology programs are provided at the Northeast Campus in classrooms and state-of-the-art labs in the Engineering Technology and Science Classroom Building.
