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 certificate 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. The certificate program consists of the four core Chemical Technology courses, an English course and mathematics proficiency.
Note: Students must take the ACCUPLACER test to ensure proficiency in mathematics. If the ACCUPLACER test indicates, MATH 0100 (3 credits) or MATH 0101 (3 credits) is required. Many courses require prerequisites, corequisites and/or testing. See course descriptions for details.
