Chemical and Environmental Engineering Technologies

Chemistry plays a major role in the advancement of society and in improving our lives. Without chemistry, there would be no pharmaceutical products, computers, automobiles, TVs, DVDs, lights, synthetic fibers, and many other items essential to modern living.

Although our society benefits from chemical advances, there are also serious repercussions. For example, in some areas toxic and corrosive chemicals have overloaded our atmosphere, water, and soil with pollutants and toxic waste.

In response to increased awareness of these problems and the need for responsible stewardship of the earth, the demand for environmental and chemical professionals has grown considerably. These specialists develop and use technology in an environmentally responsible manner, and also correct problems created by past practices.

Degree programs in the Chemical and Environmental Engineering Technologies Department at Cincinnati State include:

  • Chemical Technology (CMT)
  • Environmental Engineering Technology (EVT)
  • Environmental Engineering Technology - Stormwater Management Major (EVTS)
  • Environmental Engineering Technology - Water and Wastewater Major (EVTW)

These programs prepare technicians, research associates, analysts, and other professionals to conduct chemical analysis using sophisticated methodologies and state-of-the-art instrumentation and equipment, to promote new technologies, and to preserve and improve environmental quality.

Program graduates are prepared to successfully pursue baccalaureate degrees and to enter the workforce and advance professionally in technical and management positions in industry locally and elsewhere.

The department also offers a certificate in Environmental Safety and Security (EVTSC).
