PROGRAM OVERVIEW
The Chemical Laboratory Technology program provides graduates with knowledge in the core sciences as well as problem solving fundamentals for chemistry, biochemistry, physics and math. This program now occupies a unique position where graduates demonstrate firm problem solving abilities that can be applied across the largest number of industries from pharmaceuticals and the petroleum industry to environmental, nuclear technology and alternative energy. No other program offers such a wide range of employment or further educational opportunities. The scope of the knowledge and skills that come from this program is unparalleled and graduates are highly sought after by employers across a broad spectrum of industries.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS
  • Solid business and industry partnerships provide students the opportunity to participate in R&D projects
  • Third year placement to conduct a research project
  • This program gives the graduate unparalleled versatility in the job market
  • Since chemistry is the central science, this program offers the greatest number of pathways to university education
EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES
Career opportunities include pharmaceuticals, petroleum, food, mining, electroplating, wine/spirits, paints, polymers, plastics, computer materials, manufacturing, environmental, water treatment, consulting, pulp and paper, automotive, agricultural, ethanol, nuclear technology, government agencies, new materials, solar energy, wind energy, geological, fuel cell technology, biochemical, forensics, optics, nanotechnology and more.

These are broad categories of industries where specific job opportunities can be found in quality control, process, sales, research and development, supervision and management. A Chemistry Diploma can get you a job anywhere in North America or the globe since that skill set is in such demand. The United Nations sanctioned 2011 as the International Year of Chemistry in part because of this need! Any of our graduates who have been willing to explore job opportunities throughout Ontario and even Canada/United States have found employment within six months of graduation.
