The Accelerated Chemical Production & Power Engineering Technology program has been designed for graduates with a B.Sc. (Chemistry) or equivalent.
Students will study core courses taught in the under-graduate three-year Chemical Production & Power Engineering Technology program and the principles underlying the complex technologies used in today’s processing industries. Students train in Lambton College’s Centre of Excellence in Energy & Bio-Industrial Technologies which contains complex lab and pilot plant facilities. This Centre duplicates a real-life manufacturing environment and the technologies developed can easily be scaled-up and transferred to the actual operating unit. Students also have the benefit of participatory projects that emphasize teamwork, communication, interpersonal and problem-solving skills. This program has certain physical requirements.
Graduates will have the academic preparation to write the TSSA Operating Engineering examinations. Students have the advantage of attaining an industry certification which can lead to a variety of career opportunities. Separate registration eligibility and fees are determined by the TSSA and will apply. The additional fees are not included in the program fees.
The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (O.A.C.E.T.T.) recognizes this program as meeting all the academic requirements for certifications in the Certified Engineering Technology (C.E.T.) category.
