Chemical Technology Program at Cape Fear Community College

The Chemical Technology curriculum prepares individuals for work as analytical technicians in chemical laboratories associated with chemical production, environmental concerns, pharmaceuticals, or general analysis. Students can also use the degree to propel themselves into a four-year college or university where they will enter as juniors in a B.S. Chemistry program. A two year CHEM TECH degree qualifies an individual to work in a laboratory setting whereas two years of courses in a traditional B.S. curriculum do not provide this opportunity. Course work includes general chemistry, organic chemistry, qualitative and quantitative analysis, instrumental chemistry including techniques focusing on spectroscopy (UV-VIS, IR, AA, MS, NMR) and chromatography (GC, HPLC, TLC, SEC, IC).  The Chemical Technology program at Cape Fear Community College is a two-year (five-semester) program which leads to an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S) degree.  Graduates have always enjoyed a high rate of employment in the laboratories of companies involved in chemical production, pharmaceutical production and testing, food additive production and testing, and environmental monitoring.
