Summer Semester 2021 Catalog

Chemical Technology, Associate of Applied Science Degree

Overview

Offered at the Augusta campus

Entrance Dates: Fall
Length of Program: Six Terms (Day)
Credit Hours Required for Graduation: 64

Program Description: Chemical Technology students will be competent in the areas of math, communications, and the principles of chemistry; the techniques, instrumentation, and analysis used in chemistry; chemical and radiation safety; and industrial processes. Courses in chemical and process instrumentation, analytical chemistry, and quantitative analysis will provide techniques and knowledge for success in a career as a technician. Protocols, safety, and quality control will be emphasized throughout the program.

Employment Opportunities: Technologists operate and control many kinds of equipment and instrumentation, use various apparatus for chemical reactions, prepare compounds, monitor industrial processes, and purify and analyze samples. Technicians, while conducting various procedures from routine protocols to complex research projects, also work in data management and quality control. Greater interest in environmental issues, such as pollution control, clean energy, and sustainability, are expected to increase the demand for chemistry research and development (Bureau of Labor and Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2011-2012 ed.). Program graduates could be employed in a number of fields including governmental organizations, research labs, environmental labs, quality control, and chemical production.
