Scientific Glass Technology Program

The only Associate in Applied Science degree program of its kind in the nation, Scientific Glass Technology (SGT) introduces students to the necessary skills and techniques to construct scientific glass apparatus for university laboratories, industrial research and production.

SGT students perform advanced fabrication techniques and assemble functioning apparatus to extract, filter and distill. Students also explore technical drawing processes and CAD.

Scientific glassblowers are in high demand and are well paid. Graduates of the SGT program have earned jobs at a variety of employers such as the National Institutes of Health, Yale University, University of Delaware, Chemglass and Procter & Gamble.
