Lawrence Tech’s programs in chemistry and environmental chemistry place a strong emphasis on laboratory experience. There are several options within the chemistry program at Lawrence Tech.
Graduates who choose the degree option certified by the American Chemical Society are broadly prepared to find employment in chemistry laboratories, research, industry, medicine, biochemistry, government and education. Students are also well positioned for subsequent graduate work in chemistry, biochemistry or materials science.
The biomedical chemistry option generally satisfies the curriculum requirements for most medical, dental or veterinary schools and students are also positioned to pursue careers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries or to pursue graduate work in chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology.
Graduates who select the engineering chemistry option receive preparation in both chemistry and engineering and may pursue positions in both traditional chemistry fields as well as many of those normally filled by chemical engineers.
The environmental chemistry program offers preparation for careers in pollution prevention, hazardous waste management, chemical health and safety, environmental analysis, inspection and compliance, and the synthesis of biodegradable and photodegradable materials. It also allows students to enter graduate programs in environmental engineering and hazardous waste management. Students can:
