Hands-on, industry-relevant skills
In Chemical Technology, you'll learn to work independently and in teams to design experiments and solve unique problems. You'll also use computers and software for data acquisition, analysis, literature searches and to prepare oral and written reports.
Throughout the program, you'll perform audits to identify safety hazards, and apply WHMIS principles to the storage, handling, preparation and disposal of hazardous materials.
First-year chemistry courses include chemical safety, laboratory techniques, organic and inorganic chemistry, quantitative analysis and physical chemistry. Additional courses in computers, math, physics and communications complete the first year.
Second-year courses include instrumental analysis, environmental chemistry, applied biochemistry, industrial chemistry, oil, gas, and coal chemistry, and project management.
