About the Department
From Classroom Theory to Real-Life Impact
Undergraduate and graduate students benefit from the individualized attention and an outstanding educational environment offered by the Chemistry & Biochemistry department and its world-class faculty.
But imparting theory is only one of the ways our faculty members teach the next generation of chemists. When not in the classroom, they are in the lab, working on groundbreaking research with the potential to change the way we live in areas such as health, nanotechnology, biomedical sensors and clean energy.
The best part: As a student, you’ll work in an interdisciplinary environment that brings these great minds together. Our programs give you immediate access to state-of-the-art research facilities such as our Life Sciences and Bioengineering Center. You can take advantage of cutting-edge instrumentation and processes to begin making exciting discoveries of your own.
Whether you wish to pursue your undergraduate education at WPI or further your education through graduate studies, WPI’s Chemistry & Biochemistry department is the right place to lay the foundation for a career in academia or industry.
