Chemical technicians work in research, process improvement, product development, measurement documentation, environmental testing and quality control. They help design, set up and analyze experiments in research, product/process development and quality control. They select and order materials and equipment, operate sophisticated instruments and perform physical and chemical analyses on raw materials and products. Chemical technicians do experiments to obtain reliable records and use computers to analyze data and communicate information. They often work with other professionals to solve problems. Corning Community College's science laboratories are well-equipped and computerized.
