Chemistry-based technology program resources

Chemistry-based technology programs are programs that focus primarily on preparing students for the workplace. While most are two-year programs, there are some four-year programs. Depending on the emphasis of the program, they have a variety of titles, such as Chemical Techology, Laboratory Technology, Process Technology, Biotechnology, etc. However, they all have chemistry at their core.

The following resources can help you build and strengthen your chemistry-based technology program.
