Chemical Engineering

Students have initial coursework in math and technical foundation skills, then tackle analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, thermodynamics, unit operations (filtration and distillation), qualitative and quantitative analysis, and instrumentation.

Ideal for professional Chemical Engineers, the curriculum is also suitable for Research and Development Engineers, Chemical Production Managers, Chemical Plant Engineers, and Field Sales/Service Technicians for chemical equipment.

Prior to enrollment, students must be high school graduates or possess a GED Equivalency Certificate. Program graduates will be able to:

  • Describe the principles of inorganic and organic chemistry and basic physics.
  • Identify the applications of fluid mechanics, heat and metallurgy and compare them to the chemical process.
  • Identify what happens to liquid, solid, and gaseous elements and materials as they are exposed to chemical processes utilized in industry manufacturing operations
  • Perform analytical experiments and laboratory tests related to common chemical elements.
  • Explain the chemical properties and industrial applications of plastics.
