Independent research projects give students hands-on opportunities to build skills.

Chemistry Dept. Research Facilities

Our chemistry department offers impressive laboratories that provide easy and open access to equipment, projects and consultation with faculty. Spacious and safety conscious, the labs feature specialized instruments and dedicated space that enable students to work on complex research projects as a team or individually.

Juniors and seniors interested in intensive work in a particular subject can do a thesis study under the direct supervision of a faculty member. The caliber of this research often parallels that of graduate level students and makes an impressive addition to a vita or resume for employment or graduate/professional school.

The chemistry department has a wide array of specialized instruments, including:

  • Nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer
  • FT-IR spectrometer
  • Ultraviolet/visible spectrometer
  • HPLC
  • Atomic absorption
  • Gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer
