Course Information

Environmental safety ranks among Canada's top public concerns - and its leading growth industries.

Prepare for your career

Sheridan's Chemical Engineering Technology – Environmental advanced diploma program offers a rigorous environmental college education that prepares students for specialized careers in environmental science, the environmental industry, the chemical industry and the laboratory.

Our program

The Chemical Engineering Technology – Environmental advanced diploma program includes courses in:

  • Solid waste, air pollution and wastewater treatment.

  • Environmental audit.

  • Environmental regulations and laws.

  • Instrumental analysis and analytical chemistry.

  • Design and operation of chemical processes.

Sophisticated facilities & hands-on learning

You'll work in some of the most sophisticated college environmental science facilities and chemical laboratories in Canada, getting hands-on experience with state-of-the-art chemistry and chemical engineering technology. Sheridan's environmental science labs contain pilot plant systems that expose you to real-life industrial operations in environmental control and chemical production.

Additional information

This program shares a common academic core with the Environmental Technician, Chemical Engineering Technology and Chemical Laboratory Technician programs, so it's easy to transfer to a different program. After earning a Chemical Engineering Technology – Environmental advanced diploma some of our graduates obtain university degrees in chemistry, chemical engineering and environmental science. Depending on the university, and the choice of program, they may receive transfer credits for their study at Sheridan.

The Chemical Engineering Technology – Environmental program includes three paid co-op work placements that offer valuable experience and professional contacts. Enrolment is limited through an additional co-op selection process.

You'll also learn to use applied chemical engineering to ensure environmentally friendly industrial operations, clean up polluted sites and help enforce environmental regulations.

Many of our graduates work in laboratory, industrial and field settings, finding careers in areas such as:

  • Laboratories for environmental analysis, research and development, or quality control.

  • Environmental enforcement.

  • Operations of environmental and industrial processes.

  • Technical service and sales for chemical supplies.

With experience, graduates may move to supervisory and management positions.

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.

Chemical Engineering Technology – Environmental courses are taught at the Davis Campus in Brampton.

Learning Outcomes

The graduate has reliably demonstrated the ability to:

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

  • Implement, coordinate 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, coordinate, 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 multidisciplinary workplace.
