Advances in laboratory instrumentation continue to expand the chemical technician's role in virtually every industry. Chemical technicians work with a team to monitor experiments and calculate and document results to help invent and improve products and processes. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Texas employs more chemical technicians than any state in the nation and the demand is growing. The BLS projects that there will be 310 job openings each year for the next seven years. That’s nearly 2,200 positions that will need to be filled through 2024. Are you up for the challenge?

Students will gain a competitive advantage by participating in field trips and real-world work situations such as beach cleanups, oil spill response teams, treatment plant and landfill tours, and water sampling. About 90 percent of the program’s graduates go on to work in the Houston Gulf Coast region with companies such as Shell, Phillips, Valero, Chevron, Texas Instruments and Intel. TSTC's Chemical Technology has received the Texas General Land Office State OSPRA Award two years in a row, making it the only entity to ever win the award twice.

Chemical Technology is being phased out and is pending SACSCOC approval for closure. Students are encouraged to contact their Enrollment Coach for more information.
