Facilities and Equipment

Marist students have exceptional access to modern, state-of-the-art instrumentation in a modern teaching, learning, and research facility, and they receive hands-on training on all major pieces of instrumentation.

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