Chemical Process Engineering Program

Chemical Process Engineering Technology program focuses on the operation, monitoring, control and basic design of chemical processes and maintenance of process equipment. Chemical Process Engineering is a branch of Engineering that applies physical sciences together with mathematics to produce, transform, transport, and properly use chemicals, materials and energy.

The one-year program equips graduates with both the knowledge and practical skills necessary to begin their career as competent process operators and chemical process engineering technologists.
