A degree in Chemical Technology prepares the student for immediate employment as a chemical technician in industry or for transfer to a baccalaureate program with credit toward a degree in chemistry, pharmacy, toxicology, biochemistry, clinical chemistry, or environmental health science. Previous high school training in chemistry or physics is not required. The curriculum presents the general concepts of chemistry, physics and mathematics using methods and equipment that are currently employed in industry and the professions. Lecture and laboratory instruction and directed research projects are designed to maximize each student's understanding of the principles of chemistry and the methods of scientific discovery. Because these principles and methods have great significance in contemporary discussions of energy, environment, and health, education in chemistry serves the needs of the entire College community.
