Chemical technicians hold positions with responsibilities that were once only assigned to chemists. The demand for chemical technicians will continue to increase as automation, new products and complex production processes become more sophisticated in the chemical industries.
Brazosport College offers a two-year Associate of Applied Science degree in Chemical Technology with a Laboratory Technician option designed for students interested in a career. There is also a four year bachelor degree for Chemical Technology available. Many employers prefer a two-year degree and job applicants with a two-year degree and co-op experience will have an advantage.
