CURRICULAR GUIDE

Chemical Process Technology
Associate in Applied Science Degree

Curriculum Code: 0859  (Effective Fall 1999 - Summer 2004)

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 the "Course Descriptions" section of this catalog or the
Course Schedule for course prerequisite information.  Basic skills assessment
and advising information may be found on page 8 of this catalog.

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 coursework in mathematics.
