The Accelerated Chemical Production & Power Engineering Technology program has been designed for graduates with a B.Sc. (Chemistry) or equivalent.
Students will study core courses taught in the Chemical Production & Power Engineering Technology program and the principles underlying the complex technologies used in today’s processing industries.
Students enrolled in this program will train in Lambton College’s newly renovated Centre of Excellence in Energy & Bio-Industrial Technologies which contains complex lab and pilot plant facilities. The Centre duplicates a real-life manufacturing environment and the technologies developed can easily be scaled-up and transferred to an actual operating unit. The Centre offers state-of-practice technology laboratories and infrastructure to support learning and research in next-generation technologies in collaboration with industry.Students also have the benefit of participatory projects that emphasize teamwork, communication, interpersonal and problem-solving skills. This program has certain physical requirements.
The program prepares students to write the 4A and 4B TSSA 4th Class Operating Engineers Certification exams. This is an industry accepted certification that can lead graduates to a variety of career opportunities. Upon successful completion of the first two academic terms, students can apply to the TSSA to receive a nine-month practical steam time reduction towards their 4th Class Operating Engineers Certificate. TSSA registration eligibility requirements and fees are controlled by the TSSA and are in addition to the CPEX program requirements and fees.
The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) recognizes this program as meeting all the academic requirements for certifications in the Certified Engineering Technology (CET) category.
Note: In order to receive steam time reduction, the TSSA requires all core courses to be taken on-ground. Online courses are not eligible.
BSc or BESc, General (would need to review transcript for course exemptions)
Ontario College Advanced Diploma with appropriate preparation in Math, Chemistry, Physics, English and General Education Electives
Students are required to complete a series of technical writing workshops in order to progress into the second semester of study.
The admissions process is competitive and meeting the minimum academic requirements does not guarantee admission.
Our graduates work in various industries as operating engineers and process operators. Industries include refining and chemical process, power generation, steel production, pulp and paper, food processing, and other industrial operating or manufacturing industries. Upon completion of the program and necessary work experience, graduates may have the opportunity to move into positions including, but not limited to, unit supervision and shutdown planning.
