Course Information

Stand out from the rest with a Chemical Engineering diploma from Sheridan.

Stand out with Sheridan

Sheridan's Chemical Engineering Technology advanced diploma offers education in both lab and industry areas, but stands out for its emphasis on true chemical engineering. Our strong focus on careers that involve complex, industrial-scale processes distinguishes Sheridan from other chemical engineering college programs.

Learning Outcomes

The graduate has reliably demonstrated the ability to:

  • Perform all work in compliance with relevant statutes, regulations, standards, practices and guidelines.

  • Implement, co-ordinate and evaluate quality control and quality assurance procedures to meet organizational standards and requirements.

  • Troubleshoot industrial or chemical processes and laboratory equipment.

  • Solve complex problems and perform tasks by applying principles of mathematics, physics, chemistry and chemical engineering.

  • Perform, co-ordinate, implement and validate laboratory procedures to conduct quantitative and qualitative analyses and tests.

  • Prepare and purify compounds using standard synthesis and purification procedures.

  • Maintain and control industrial or chemical processes and assist with their design using chemical engineering principles.

  • Analyze and interpret data using statistical methods.

  • Select and use current technologies in chemical engineering tasks and projects.

  • Prepare, modify, interpret and present technical documents for chemical engineering applications.

  • Apply best practices for sustainability.

  • Develop strategies for ongoing personal and professional development to enhance work performance in a multi-disciplinary workplace.

Gain career-ready skills

In Sheridan's Chemical Engineering Technology advanced diploma program, you'll acquire a broad range of fundamental skills that include:

  • Instrumental analysis and analytical chemistry

  • Organic, inorganic and physical chemistry

  • Design and operation of chemical processes

  • Environmental science

  • Process control

Practical, career-oriented learning

Sheridan emphasizes practical, hands-on learning in laboratory settings and industrial environments. You'll work directly with state-of-the-art chemical engineering and laboratory equipment, providing you with the advanced skills that are sought after by industry.

Additional information

Chemical industries include pharmaceuticals, energy, plastics, paints, fuels, metals and food – an extremely broad range.

You'll also gain a flexible set of skills that apply across a range of chemical engineering career paths. Sheridan offers a tightly integrated suite of chemical engineering college programs and chemistry programs; you can easily transfer your Chemical Engineering credits to the Chemical Laboratory Technician, Environmental Technician, and Chemical Engineering Technology – Environmental programs. Some graduates go on to study chemistry or chemical engineering at university. Depending on the university, and the choice of program, they may receive transfer credits for their study at Sheridan.

On the laboratory side, careers are found in research and development, quality control, production support, and technical service and sales. On the industrial side, careers range from plant operations (using the latest in computer control systems) to technical sales and service for industrial equipment and chemicals. Chemical Engineering Technology graduates may work their way up to supervisory and management positions in both the laboratory and industry.

Graduates have completed all the academic requirements for professional certification with the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT). Additional requirements for certification exist and are established by OACETT. Graduates are also eligible for membership in the Chemical Institute of Canada.

The program includes a work/study co-op option, offering valuable professional experience and contacts. Enrolment is limited. See Cooperative Education for details.

Chemical Engineering Technology courses are taught at the Davis Campus in Brampton, Ontario.
