Chemistry connects the physical sciences with life sciences and applied sciences. It is at the heart of solving a broad range of critical scientific problems in fields like energy, catalysis, drug design, and materials development and production.


Graduate students in Chemistry work closely with faculty to carry out cutting-edge research that advances current understanding and knowledge in a broad spectrum of chemical problems.


“The chemistry background you need; the flexibility you desire.” The department enables students to customize their academic background for the career they wish to pursue.
