Overview

In this three-year advanced diploma program, you will be training for an exciting career as a chemical technologist with specializations in chemical analysis, applied chemical engineering and environmental chemistry. This program will provide you with hands-on experience and a solid background in basic biology, chemistry and mathematics. You will further focus on analytical and instrumental chemistry, organic, industrial and polymer chemistry, metallurgy, ceramics, composites and environmental analysis, health and chemistry.

Your academic progress will be monitored during the first two semesters. As the number of seats in the third semester is limited, if you do not maintain a semester GPA of at least 2.5 during the first year and subsequent semester, you will be transferred to an alternate program within the School of Biological Sciences and Applied Chemistry.

Common First Semester

The following programs have the first two semesters in common, allowing you to transfer between programs before the second year:

Skills

Throughout this program you will develop the following skills:

  • Implement and evaluate quality control procedures
  • Perform and validate laboratory procedures to conduct tests
  • Improve industrial or chemical processes and laboratory equipment
  • Prepare and purify compounds using standard chemical procedures

Affiliations/Associations

  • Chemical Institute of Canada (CIC) through the Canadian Society for Chemical Technology (CSCT)

Optional Work Term

Students meeting all academic requirements may have the opportunity to complete an optional work term(s) in a formal work environment. The work term(s) is similar in length to an academic semester and typically involves full-time work hours that may be paid or unpaid.

Eligibility for participation does not guarantee a work position will be secured. Additional fees are required for those participating in the optional work term stream regardless of success in securing a work position.
