In our department, students have access to research, competitive internships and career training opportunities that will prepare them for the demands of current and future society.  Studying chemistry requires a strong interest in inquiry. Our state-of-the-art instrumentation encourages curiosity while our highly enthusiastic faculty make our classrooms a true gateway to discovery.
