Diploma Program Course List

Chemical Process Operator

Chemical Process Operator Studies

Diploma (S)

The Chemical Process Operator Studies diploma program prepares students for employment in industrial plants in the chemical, petroleum, polymer and pharmaceutical industries. The chemical industry has a great need for trained chemical operators to adjust and optimize conditions for the production of large quantities of products in local chemical plants and pilot plants. Graduates are readily employed by these local plants at competitive salaries. The program provides a practical education in various aspects of plant operations such as hands-on training in process operations and control, regulatory compliance, and preventive maintenance skills. Laboratory facilities include not only standard lab equipment, but also modern instrumentation in pilot plant technology and computer simulations.
