We think chemists have all the solutions.
Our chemistry program integrates classroom instruction with laboratory experimentation and faculty-student collaborative research.One ongoing project involves developing a new method of indenoannulation, which is the process used to synthesize organic molecules that could be used in solar cells. The goal is to define a more viable and efficient source of alternative energy using solar power.
As a chemistry major, you can engage in research activities during the academic year and conduct stipend-bearing research during the summer. You might choose to investigate topics in green chemistry, environmental chemistry, inorganic chemistry, or biochemistry.
