Facilities & Equipment

Students have exceptional access to modern, state-of-the-art instrumentation in a new (2007) teaching, learning, and research facility! Students receive hands-on training on all major pieces of instrumentation, most of which have been replaced or significantly upgraded since 2000.

Our commitment to exposing students to high-quality instrumentationstarts in General Chemistry classes, in which laptop computers interfaced to probes and spectrometers are routinely used. Students become proficient on a variety of advanced instrumentation as well as theoretical modeling techniques using state-of-the-art computers in our dedicated computational chemistry laboratory.
