Chemical Process Technology
Chemical Process Technology is a key curriculum, since an understanding of chemistry and physics is the basis of several industries, including solar production. Delta College offers a Chemical Process Technology curriculum specifically focused on increasing the number of Process Operator graduates available within the Great Lakes Bay Region.
The College has worked collaboratively with chemical and solar employers to develop the program, as well as articulation of each company’s anticipated staffing needs.
Delta’s goal is to continue this beneficial business partnership and build the student pipeline of graduates available for hire.
The projected employment demand is for more than 100 new hires each year, which does not include estimates for the the new solar companies locating in the region. Starting pay for these high-skill, high-demand jobs is $13-$20 per hour.
Due to increasing industry demand, an additional program called Fast Start has been created.
