Diploma in Analytical Chemistry

The Diploma in Analytical Chemistry Technology (ACT) trains students as chemical technologists in industry-relevant and employment-ready instrumental analysis skills. The ACT program is a two-year, four-semester program that requires the completion of 70 credits of coursework. The program provides graduates with a solid understanding of the protocols common to analytical laboratories including sampling and sample preparation, quality assurance, quality control, quality assessment, instrumental analysis and calibration, data processing and interpretation, and reporting. In particular, this program involves thorough integration of statistical analysis and quality assurance / quality control (QA/QC) within its curriculum while stressing effective and relevant report writing and communication skills. Students will also receive extensive experience with a variety of the modern instruments they will encounter in future work environments, will be trained in safe and environmentally sound laboratory practices, will develop technical writing and public presentation skills, and will gain experience in the team-work approach to problem solving. Graduates of the ACT program will acquire instrumental analysis skills that will enable them to readily enter laboratories, becoming productive employees with a minimum of specific job orientation and training.

Graduates can seek employment as trained chemical analysts in a wide variety of laboratories in industry, government, and institutions. These could include academic, environmental, chemical, mining and smelting, pulp and paper, petrochemical, food, beverage, brewer and vintner, and health laboratories. Graduates of the ACT program may have the option of pursuing Bachelor of Technology programs at other institutions, or other Bachelor degrees that have completion of a two-year diploma level program as the admission requirement.
