Put chemistry to work in the lab and at the industrial scale.
Chemists solve problems in the laboratory; chemical engineers solve them in industry. Sheridan's Chemical Engineering Technology diploma program offers education in both areas, but it stands out for its emphasis on true chemical engineering. Our strong focus on careers that involve complex, industrial-scale processes distinguishes Sheridan from other chemical engineering college programs.
Chemical industries include pharmaceuticals, energy, plastics, paints, fuels, metals and food - an extremely broad range. In Sheridan's Chemical Engineering Technology diploma program, you'll acquire a broad range of fundamental skills that include:
- Instrumental analysis and analytical chemistry
- Organic, inorganic and physical chemistry
- Design and operation of chemical processes
- Environmental science
- Process control
Practical, Career-oriented Learning
Sheridan emphasizes practical, hands-on learning in laboratory settings and simulated industrial environments. You'll work directly with current chemical engineering technology and laboratory instruments - some of the same equipment you'll use professionally.
You'll also gain a flexible set of skills that apply across a range of chemical engineering career paths. Sheridan offers a tightly integrated suite of chemical engineering college programs and chemistry programs; you can easily transfer your Chemical Engineering credits to the Chemical Laboratory Technician, Environmental Technician, and Chemical Engineering Technology - Environmental programs, or to a university-level chemistry or chemical engineering degree program.
The program includes a work/study co-op option, offering valuable professional experience and contacts. Enrolment is limited; see Cooperative Education for details.
Chemical Engineering Technology courses are taught at the Davis Campus in Brampton, Ontario.
