Research in Chemistry and Physics

All students in chemistry and physics majors take part in undergraduate research. This begins with a course, usually taken in the sophomore or junior year, which introduces students to the research process. The student will then joins one or more research groups during their junior and senior years.

These projects have included working with NASA, the Navy, the Air Force, and numerous private companies.  Participation helps prepare students to carry out research in the corporate world or in graduate school.  Check out the videos below for a peek into some recent project.
