In 2011-2012 academic year, the Department's undergraduate enrollment increased to 98 with 24 M.S. students in Chemistry and two interdisciplinary Ph.D. students from the EES program. Several scholarships and fellowships are available to support both graduate and undergraduate studies. The Department is equipped with state-of-the-art instruments and computational facilities for research and education. We look forward to continued growth as we embrace the atmosphere of collaboration and interdisciplinary research.
The Department is housed in a facility with smart classrooms for teaching. The classrooms are set up with workstations on their perimeter which allows for a student to make a smooth transition from pre-lab discussion to laboratory experimentation.
Motivated undergraduate students actively participate in faculty research groups and several of them are publishing in peer reviewed journals. The Department of Chemistry is committed to creating a vibrant atmosphere full of excitement and discovery.
