Chemical Engineering Technology (fast-track)

We all want a better, more sustainable world. To achieve this, our rapidly evolving world needs innovative products, processes and materials and this is at the heart of chemical engineering technology. Material science, nuclear energy, new fuels and fuel cell production, solar energy, pharmaceutical production, food preservatives and additives and green chemical products all have one thing in common – the chemical engineering technologist.

Program Description

If you are a domestic or internationally educated student with a Bachelor of Science (BSc), you may be eligible for this compressed, fast-track opportunity to complete your advanced diploma requirements in only two semesters.

This fast-track option is designed to complement the post-secondary education you have already received and provide you with skills specific to the field of chemical engineering technology.

Chemical engineering technology is about creating value through chemical conversions, all the way from lab-scale processes to optimizing full-plant operations. This program will provide you with training for these skills including manufacturing of high-tech polymers, water treatment operations, catalytic conversions, nuclear power and other fuel sources and the roles that chemical engineering technologists play in each area.

It will provide you with a solid background in analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, nuclear physics and instrumental analysis including chromatography and spectroscopy. Working alone and in teams, first-hand experience is emphasized through the college's fully equipped Analytical Instrumentation laboratory. The core of the program will give you training and experience in the handling, analyzing, monitoring, processing and properties of a wide variety of chemicals.

Safety and environmental compliance are both emphasized in the course and a field placement component provides valuable contacts and experience.
