Diploma in Chemical Technology is a short term course and many times addressed in its abbreviated form of DCT. Chemical Engineering is one of various branches of Engineering and it deals with a combination of Chemistry, Physics,
life Sciences including Microbiology, Biochemistry and other related subjects. Mathematics and Economics are also playing their roles in this stream. Candidates learn about the detailed process of converting the raw material to chemical into its valuable or useful form. The course also supports the students to understand the chemical engineering principles, various experimental activities, etc during the course which helps them in future.
Candidates who have completed their 12th examinations with at least 45% marks in Science and Mathematics separately are eligible for this course. 12th must be done from a recognized board and should have studies English till 10th standard (Basic knowledge of English is mandatory.)
Admissions can be availed directly by approaching the institutes administrative office. Candidates need to submit the filled application form, other required documents and application fee before last date of application submission.

The duration for this course is 2 years after 12th. There are few institutes which are offering this course even after passing 10th examinations. In that case, the duration is 3 years for diploma in Chemical technology.
Further Study options
There is a lot of scope of study for those who are willing to pursue higher studies in the same field. Candidates can go for Graduation or Bachelor of Science in Chemical Technology, Post Graduation or M.Sc., Post Graduate Diploma, etc as per their choice. Once the post graduation or equivalent degree is completed; PhD can also be pursued to have a scientific career.
Candidates interested in teaching can go for B.Ed and then M.Ed.
The course teaches all about Science, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. It starts with basic topics like Applied Chemistry, Basics of Chemical technology, Fluid Flow, Thermodynamics, types of engineering materials, etc. Once the basics become clear to the students, some critical topics get introduced like Mechanical Operations, Industrial Stoichiometry, Industrial management, Chemical hazards and safety guidelines, Processing of Instrumentations and many more.
After Diploma in Chemical technology, it is difficult to get a good paying job but once graduation or post graduation is done, candidates can easily get a job as Chemical engineer in industries, chemical plants, etc.
