CURRICULAR GUIDE

Chemical Process Technology
Associate in Applied Science Degree

Curriculum Code: 0859  (Effective Fall 2002 - Summer 2007)

Chemical Process Technologists are trained for employment as process operators
in the chemical and related industries.  Process operators are required to
maintain safety, health and environmental standards in the plant; handle,
store and transport chemicals; operate, monitor and control continuous and
batch processes; and participate in routine and preventative maintenance of
equipment and instrumentation.  

Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges.  Students planning
to transfer should see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in
any course.

Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course
prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section
for skills assessment and advising information.

General education is an important part of this program and includes a
mathematics competency requirement.  To fulfill the mathematics competency
requirement, students may need to complete specific course work in
mathematics.  See the General Education Core Requirements section for
information on how to fulfill these requirements.
