Associate in Applied Science Degree in Chemical Technology (AAS_CHMT)

Knight Campus, Warwick only

This program was the first in the nation to be accredited by the American Chemical Society.

The chemical industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States. Its need for trained technicians in quality control, analysis, and research and development laboratories is extensive.

The Chemical Technology program prepares graduates to enter the chemical field in any one of a variety of capacities: chemical research technician, laboratory assistant, chemical production technician, junior chemist or analytical technician. The program is structured to develop a fundamental understanding of general, organic and analytical chemistry, with emphasis on laboratory applications and techniques.

Note: It is recommended that full-time students take a minimum of 15 credits each semester. Many courses require prerequisites, corequisites and/or testing. See course descriptions for details.
