Saskatchewan’s natural resource boom is a major factor in the growing demand for chemical technologists. Chemical Technology is a diploma program that focuses on knowledge and skill development in chemical analysis and chemical plant operation. The emphasis is on hands-on learning. In addition to labs and applied research projects, you will get realworld experience during a four-week industry training session. You’ll develop a strong foundation of knowledge and skills in:

  • analytical instrumentation
  • basic, organic, physical, analytical and environmental chemistry
  • chemical engineering
  • handling and manipulating chemicals
  • laboratory quality control and assurance
  • recording, processing and reporting data
  • servicing and maintaining scientific instruments

The Chemical Technology program is accredited by the Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB) at the Chemical Technologist level. After two years of suitable industrial experience, Saskatchewan Polytechnic graduates are eligible to apply for membership with the Saskatchewan Applied Science Technologists and Technicians (SASTT) as Applied Science Technologists.

Selected courses in this program are available through distance and/or part-time continuing education. The program is available full-time at Saskatchewan Polytechnic campus in Saskatoon. For complete program information, check the program page.
