The chemical industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States. Its need for trained technicians in quality control, analysis, and research and development laboratories is extensive.
The Chemical Technology program prepares graduates to enter the chemical field in any one of a variety of capacities: chemical research technician, laboratory assistant, chemical production technician, junior chemist or analytical technician. The program is structured to develop a fundamental understanding of general, organic and analytical chemistry, with emphasis on laboratory applications and techniques.
Note: It is recommended that full-time students take a minimum of 15 credits each semester. Many courses require prerequisites, corequisites and/or testing. See course descriptions for details.
MATH 1200 meets the general education mathematics requirement only for the CHMT, DMSD, and XRAY programs.
This course starts in January and ends in August.
