The Industrial Chemistry Concentration (B.S. in Applied Science) is grounded in chemistry with applications in the commercial sector and a theoretical chemical underpinning. You will learn how to apply principles of multiple chemistry disciplines to synthesize and characterize materials as well as develop scaled-up production methods.
Scientists in the field of Industrial Chemistry
- Perform chemical analyses
- Optimize experiments and/or production methods
- Perform clinical lab work
Original Research Experiences
Your mentor-directed research will lay the groundwork for more application-oriented developments, as well as projects intended for future commercial implementation. This research reinforces your understanding of chemical principles imparted in the classroom and will prepare you for industrial employment after graduation. Your research may be disseminated through publications or conference presentations as preparation for graduate school.
Current Industrial Chemistry student research projects include:
- Bio-inspired catalysis
- Emulsion polymerization and surface chemistry characterization
