Apa yang akan saya pelajari?

The chemical technology program prepares graduates for employment in chemical laboratory settings including pharmaceutical, paper, plastic, waste water, and environmental laboratories. Chemical technicians may work in research and development, product testing, or general chemical analysis to help develop, test, and manufacture chemical products. Students may substitute higher level classes for the ones listed under required classes below (i.e. calculus 1 for college algebra and calculus 2 for trigonometry), and must meet with a counselor to have potential substitutions applied. Students transferring to a 4 year institution will have an easier time finding a position in a research laboratory once they receive this degree.

TYPES OF CHEMICAL TECHNICIANS

Laboratory technician — operates standard laboratory equipment and conducts laboratory procedures ranging from routine process control to complex research projects.
Process technician — performs chemical tests and experiments for quality, performance, or composition.

TYPICAL WORK DUTIES

• Set up apparatus for chemical reactions
• Help devise and troubleshoot syntheses and analytical procedures
• Manage databases
• Ensure that packaging of hazardous materials complies with regulations
• Work in pilot plants, assisting engineers with running experiments in a miniature version of a manufacturing process

EDUCATION

The best preparation is a two-year associate degree in an applied science (AAS) program designed to prepare students for a career in chemical technology. Kalamazoo Valley Community College offers an associate of applied science for chemical technology. This degree requires completion of a minimum of 62 credit hours. Kalamazoo Valley prepares students with skills necessary to go immediately into the workforce.

TRANSFER PROGRAMS

It is possible to obtain two different associate of science degrees at Kalamazoo Valley. The AA in biology is designed for students planning to major in bio-medical science. The AA in science will satisfy the general education and entry-level science course requirements for any science related major in chemistry, biochemistry, and/or physics. Both degrees prepare students to transfer to other colleges and universities for completion of a bachelor's degree.

Careers

Students in this pathway have an interest in understanding how the world works and with our rapidly improving technologies, there are always new boundaries to push and something new to learn. As a result, technologies we can barely dream of today will be the reality ten years from now and science and engineering students will be on the leading edge of those changes. If you are curious, intuitive and logical with a good memory and the ability to make assumptions based on data, science and engineering may be a good pathway for you.
