The NDSU Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry is a medium-sized department with internationally recognized research and a small student-to-faculty ratio. Thus each student can get enough one-to-one attention from faculty, while participating in cutting-edge research working under the supervision of well recognized scientists.
We encourage collaborations between groups and departments, which often lead to cross-disciplinary learning opportunities and career development.
The department operates a wide variety of sophisticated research instrumentation and facilities, available 24 hours a day for use by students and faculty.
We educate both through courses and research, with strong programs in the traditional areas of:
- Organic Chemistry
- Inorganic Chemistry
- Analytical Chemistry
- Physical Chemistry
- Molecular Biology
We also offer research experience in interdisciplinary areas:
- Sustainable Green Chemistry
- Optical & Electronic Materials
- Molecular & Materials Modeling
- Chemistry Education
