Chemical Engineering Technology

Imagine a career working in a laboratory environment developing the next generation of medications, developing new and improved fuels, extracting valuable metals from raw materials, or working on environmental sustainability. Chemical engineering is a broad field that delves into all of these areas and more.

Cambrian's Chemical Engineering Technology program is the only one of its kind in Ontario and is designed to develop the skill sets you will need to work in any of these exciting fields. It couples fundamental theory with the necessary hands-on, practical laboratory training required for employment in various chemical industries and environmental sectors. You will work independently and in groups to build the self-directed study and team work skills you will need within various workplace settings.
