Phased reopening of campuses is underway. Check roanestate.edu/coronavirus for the latest on the college's response to COVID-19.
The Chemical Engineering Technology Program prepares graduates for a position as process operator/technician in industries where chemical processes are used. Using fundamental chemistry and basic algebra, students will develop an understanding of the safe and efficient operation and maintenance of chemical processing equipment from valves and pumps to more complex processing systems such as gas absorption and chemical reactors. Emphasis is placed on industrial safety and troubleshooting of typical chemical processes while incorporating real world case studies, teamwork, and effective communication skills. Other topics include blueprint interpretation, CAD design, electrical and mechanical fundamentals, and using computers to control processes and collect data. The program accomplishes these tasks by combining classroom study with practical hands-on experience in the labs associated with the coursework.
