An information session about Roane State Community College’s new two-year Associate of Applied Science in Chemical Engineering Technology will be held on Thursday, March 28, from 5:30-7 p.m. at the college’s Oak Ridge campus, which is at 701 Briarcliff Avenue.
Check-in will be held in the lobby of the Goff Health Sciences and Technology Building. The event is free and open to the public, a press release said.
Established with the assistance of UCOR, CNS, Tate and Lyle, and additional partners, Roane State’s chemical engineering technology program trains students to work as chemical operators. A chemical operator monitors, controls, and troubleshoots automated chemical processes.
Graduates will be able to work in industries where chemical processes are used such as chemical manufacturing, food production, nuclear processing, petrochemical processing, metal refining, waste treatment, and automotive coatings, the press release said.
Program director Laura Hofman will discuss details of the program, job opportunities, and opportunities to work while studying. The event will also include hands-on activities, the press release said.
For more information, contact Hofman at (865) 354-3000, ext. 2220, or [email protected], or contact adult student enrollment coordinator Jack Parker at (865) 354-3000, ext. 4891, or [email protected].
Remember, eligible adults can now attend Roane State tuition-free with the new Reconnect grant. Learn more at roanestate.edu/reconnect.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
