Chemical Engineering Technology, A.A.S.

 

This program is a two-year curriculum leading to the Associate’s of Applied Science (A.A.S.) in Chemical Engineering Technology (CHET) and prepares the graduate to enter the workforce as a chemical technician or process operator. Typical employers will be chemical industries, energy utilities, and manufacturing industries. Successful completion of this program does not guarantee employment with any specific industry or company. Therefore, to be competitive for scholarships and to be competitive in the job market, the student should complete all classes with at least a grade of “C” or better. The student must complete prerequisite courses (CHEM 1010/1011 , CHEM 1040/1041 , CHEM 1310 , CHEM 1320 , MATH 1110  or MATH 1530 , PHYS 1020/1021 ) and complete the CHET program application process to be admitted into CHET courses.
