What is the Study of Chemical Engineering Technology?

The Bachelor of Technology in Chemical is a program with three or four year options. Combining theoretical principles with technical expertise, this degree takes an applied approach to not only chemical processes, but instrumentation and sample analyses. With great relevance to other fields of study such as engineering and nanotechnology, medicine and dentistry, food sciences and environmental sciences, the Chemical Engineering Technology programs provide a gateway into many interesting and opportunity-filled careers.

Students have great opportunities for hands-on research with state-of-the-art equipment, including a 400 MHz NMR spectrometer, FT-IR, FT-Raman, UV/Vis spectrometers, UPLC-MSMS/PAD, HPLC, GC-FID, GC-MS, atomic absorption spectrometer and a 28 core Linux cluster.

Program Options at CBU

The BET 3-year Chemical and 4-year Advanced Chemical programs are available through different pathways:

  • Direct entry
  • Advanced standing Post Diploma
  • Advanced standing Post Degree

Post Diploma and Post Degree admissions will require a minimum of 50% of their BET degrees to be completed at CBU.  Therefore a maximum of 45-credits (15, one term courses) may be transferred from an appropriate program at an approved post-secondary institution to the 3-year, 90-credit BET (Chemical) and a maximum of 60-credits (20, one term courses) may be transferred from an appropriate program at an approved post-secondary institution to the 4-year, 120-credit BET (Advanced Chemical).

Please see Program Details for more on the structure of this degree.

* The BET degrees do not lead to a professional engineering designation.
